Wanted to at least get this stuff out to Bucs fans, though they may become full blown columns at some point.
- The Bucs and Ruud have been working on a contract extension for several weeks now, according to Jason LaConfora. Not a surprise I guess, but I wonder what the end game is here. Apparently looking for Bart Scott money (approx $8 million a year). But with no salary cap (or floor) next year, I wouldn't be surprised to see him not get a deal, to get tendered at the highest level. This would cost less for the year and if some other team went after Ruud, the Bucs would get compensation.
- Jonathan Compas was supposedly going to start at center. Byron Leftwich made a reference to he and Sean Mahan working together on Sunday. Sounds like it's Mahan we'll see. Good luck Byron
- Saw something on T.O. this morning on Sportscenter. Apparently he's accustomed to putting up mediocre Week one performances only to come back with a vengeance in week 2. We've been warmed by the Worldwide Leaders in Sports. (Da na na, Da na na)
Just a few quick hits. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
