Longtime No Howad
 
this blurb reminded me of the "they'll do something to keep Howard, sign the rookies, and renegotiate other contracts and sat under the cap" talk...

AP reports the Bucs would like to sign a veteran receiver such as ex-Giant WR Ike Hilliard or an experienced cornerback. But they are virtually out of salary cap room, HC Jon Gruden said. "I think we had $18,000 of room at one point, so you can't sign anybody," he said. "We're out of business. The woodshed is closed. " Bruce (Allen, the general manager) has taken my cell phone away. He won't let me call anyone, he won't let me accept any calls from anyone." The Bucs are about $1.3-million under the salary cap, according to ESPN.com. But in order to sign draft picks, they will need to clear about $6-million.

I see that Kelley, and raise you a Jarrod Breaux:

On another note, the likelihood of the Saints dealing Darren Howard plummeted for the second year in a row. With the exception of the Washington Redskins, most of the suitors for Howard addressed their needs through the draft, the most notable suitor being the Dallas Cowboys. However, a deal with the Redskins, while slim, could still be a chance if players were to be involved. Overall keeping Howard wouldn’t hurt the team immediately, but it would likely ensure that they get nothing for him in a year. If they were to keep him signed to a one-year offer the team would put themselves in a very poor position next off-season because if they were to try and franchise him again, his salary would have to increase 20 percent over what he will be paid this season. That move could put them in a similar situation that Oakland is now in with Charles Woodson.

Wait until those drafted rookies hit camps and don\'t look quite as good as their hype - teams will be beating down our door for Howard!

I still think that Philly looks like a possibility. They still need an end, and we still need a DT *unless you ask the guys who think this is Sully\'s year).

Howard for Simon. Do it.

on the other thread talking about position battles it made me think more about howard. if he stays franchised at 7.8mil and plays some DT that would push 17mil for sully, young, and him. 20% of the payroll for the middle of what was the worst D in the league last year. kinda crazy cap-wise considering production.
