The Bucs more glaring needs are at receiver and offensive tackle and to that end Bruce Allen brought in left tackle Brad Hopkins for an interview. For background on Hopkins I went to Titans blogger Jeff at GoTitans.com...
When the Titans drafted three tackles in the '05 draft, the writing was on the wall for Hopkins. The Titans are rebuilding and need to get these young guys in now so they can get some experience and gel while the team looks to '07 and beyond. Roos (who the Titans took in the second round last year) is a natural LOT. He played ROT last year but backed Hopkins all season -- replacing him in the opener and as the #2 in practice all year.
I think he is an average OT now who might help out a team for a season or two but no more. The Titans offered him the vet minimum and I don't think they could guarantee he'd start at LOT.
Additionally, in what has become a yearly right of passage, the Bucs are looking at a big name receiver. Last year, Jerry Rice's name was tossed around and the season before that Tim Brown. This offseason Bruce Allen is looking at Isaac Bruce, another guy on the wrong side of 30.
While the Bucs are thin at receiver the position is also top heavy. When healthy Joey Galloway and Michael Clayton are both number one receivers, which means Bruce would be the third receiver at best. While he is no longer the Pro Bowler he once was would Bruce be willing to play third fiddle?
EDIT: Bruce has resigned with St. Louis so ignore the compete and utter nonsense above.
