No Vets Allowed


As the Bucs look to get younger, they rid themselves of fan favorites

As the Bucs look to get younger, they rid themselves of fan favorites

Looks like the new GM in Tampa is doing his best Parcells impression. Today the Bucs released some notable vets: Derrick Brooks, Warrick Dunn, Cato June, Joey Galloway, and Ike Hilliard. The most shocking is the Brooks release. I never thought I’d see the day this guy wasn’t in pewter and red. Here’s a statement from the front office.


“Our family and the entire Tampa Bay community owe Derrick an indescribable measure of gratitude for all that he has meant over the last 14 years,” Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer said in a statement. “His play on the field and leadership in the locker room helped resurrect our franchise and we look forward to celebrating his certain enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

Now the question is where will these guys go? Let’s start with Mr. Derrick Brooks.

Really, I don’t see him on anything other than a team with a young defense. This would give them that veteran leadership everyone loves and it would be temporary…one or two years max. Teams that fit: Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs

Cato June and Warrick Dunn still have some market value so I think they’ll have some suitors. No worries there.

Ike Hilliard and Joey Galloway may have some trouble. Joey Galloway actually may have to retire. Ike Hilliard could see himself on a team that needs a good number 3 guy like the Jets.
