Do you think it's any coincidence that after Derrick Brooks announced he was taking a paycut, Shelton Quarles did the same thing? That's the value a guy like Brooks brings to your team which the Randy Mosses (who claims to be a team leader) of the world will never have. Humility is a virtue to Brooks, and that attitude permeates to the rest of his Bucs team mates.
Anyway, thanks to Quarles (the middle linebacker or Mike) the Bucs have some extra money to spend in free agency. Scheduled to make $3.1 M in '06 and $3.75 M in '07, Quarles has restructured his contract to make $1.3 M each of the next two years.
Now here's hoping the Bucs actually spend that money on some additional players.
