Bucs sign fat ass

Tampa Bay made their first move in the free agent market by signing guard Toniu Fonoti. Fonoti played for San Diego before being traded to Minnesota (red flag!). He then signed a contract with the Raiders which was voided when Fonoti failed the physical (red flag!). In the last three seasons Fonoti has missed 29 games because of injury (red flag!).

I'm not suggesting this signing is all bad, Fonoti could round himself into shape and end up being a great signing (much like Chris Hovan was last year). Fonoti was a second round draft pick, and is still young (24) so the potential is there. But I wouldn't pencil this guy in for all sixteen games this season quite yet.
