17:15 p.m.: Big news hit. The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Roy Miller and the Bucs have traded Arrelious Benn to the Eagles for peanuts.

16:11 p.m.: And Elvis Dumervil is officially a free agent because they couldn't get the contract turned in in time.

15:33 p.m.: Louis Delmas signs with the Lions, while Elvis Dumervil remains in Denver after taking a pay cut, per Adam Schefter. Not all that relevant: the Buccaneers weren't going to pursue either player.

14:53 p.m.: Eric Wright lost his grievance and his guarantee has been voided. The Bucs can now cut him and save $7.75 million of salary cap space.

14:10 p.m.: The Falcons signed Tony Gonzalez to a two-year, $14 million contract. That means facing the best tight end in NFL history for two more years. Goodie.

13:26 p.m.: The Patriots have re-signed CB Kyle Arrington, per Jeff Phowe of the Boston Herald. That's another cornerback off the market, not that he was very intriguing.

12:00 a.m.: The Buccaneers let Michael Bennett leave because of Da'Quan Bowers' upside. That's what the Tampa Bay Times is reporting. I can't disagree that Bowers has a ridiculous amount if upside, but the Bucs now have no depth and no third-down rusher inside to pair with McCoy. Bowers could gave started, and Bennett would still gave seen a ton of snaps each game.

11:34 a.m.: The Miami Dolphins have signed tight end Dustin Keller to a one-year deal, per Adam Schefter. Not much left on the tight end market for the Bucs.

11:29 a.m.: The Bucs have won an award for their athletic training staff, while Davin Joseph has been named the team's recipient of the Ed Block Courage award.

The Bucs' training staff did a good job rehabbing players from injuries the past season.

11:25 a.m.: The Patriots gave signed WR Donald Jones, per Adam Schefter. Could gave been solid depth in Tampa.

10:54 a.m.: The Jets have signed Mike Goodwin to a three-year deal, per Adam Schefter. Does this affect the Bucs? Nope.

10:00 a.m.: How did media and fans react to the Dashon Goldson signing? We find out.

9:56 a.m.: Rick Gosselin has an interesting note.

Two of those Pro Bowls are Goldson's.

9:00 a.m.: The Patriots are hosting Dwight Freeney, John Abraham and Adrian Wilson, per Tom E. Curran. That's a lot of old guys.

8:20 a.m.: Jeremy Trueblood thanks the fans.

8:10 a.m.: Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins want to re-sign Jake Long after all.

7:08 a.m.: DraftPhantom explains why the Buccaneers should not trade their first-round pick for Revis.

Here's a new thing I'm going to try today: a live blog that serves as your open thread. We have plenty of action coming in, so let's get to it!
