A look at Bucs list of players wrapped up in the restricted/unrestricted free agency mess


We discussed this a while back. Based on the reading of the CBA and the fact that 2010 is uncapped, a special set of rules are in place for free agency. Most notably "In a normal year, four years of service qualifies a player for unrestricted free agency. In an uncapped year, the number moves to six." (Per PFT). Here is the list, again courtesy of PFT, that will be affected. Buccaneers (9): receiver Mark Bradley, receiver Brian Clark, linebacker Matt McCoy, tackle Donald Penn, linebacker Barrett Ruud, receiver Maurice Stovall, tackle Jeremy Trueblood, running back Carnell Williams, linebacker Rod Wilson
