Free agent QB Stephen McGee worked out for the Bucs.
The Bucs are only two deep at quarterback, but it appears they were just doing their due diligence on the former Cowboy. McGee was terrible in the preseason and has no practice squad eligibility. Perhaps he'll resurface as a No. 2 or 3 quarterback during the year with a team racked by injuries.

I like that.

Trent Edwards is someone I thought would turn out to be a decent QB in this league... wouldn't mind giving him a look.

In the end it doesn't really matter, though. If Free goes down, so does our season.

@jpalestri Hayward and Economos are ST captains.

Last year our captains were Freeman, Ronde, Hayward, Black and Faine. I'm sure that Joseph would have been a captain this year if he was healthy.

McCoy needs to live up to the bill and stay healthy. We need him. Our dline seemed to tank when he went down.

Roger Goodells credibility now comes into question. No evidence of the players he suspended and courts have overruled in favor of the 4 suspended Saints players.

From my understanding, it could've gone either way.

Not at all. This ruling simply states that Goddell didn't have the authority to levy such penalties towards the players. As far as I understand it the evidence that Goddell has regarding the bounty program wasn't even considered in this case.

Yes but not that theyre not guilty but Goodel had no proof or evidence. Basing his decision to suspend on hearsay? That shows 0 credibility

Not guilty ≠ innocent.

I've read a few articles saying that this might actually be a good thing for the league. It's not that the courts ruled there was no bounty program, just that Goodell didn't have the power to suspend the players for the reasons he listed.

Apparently it'll give the NFL time to re-write the suspensions, for the same amount of time, but giving slightly different reasonings and thus fitting the legality of the suspension within the parameters of Goodell's authority.

Exactly. It seems like this ruling just delays the inevitable.

PFT explains the ruling and the implications of it here: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/09/07/leagues-internal-memo-suggests-that-suspensions-will-be-re-issued/

Quote:
“Nothing in today’s decision contradicts any of the facts found in the investigation into this matter, or absolves any player of responsibility for conduct detrimental,” Pash writes. “Nor does the decision in any way suggest what discipline would be appropriate for conduct that lies within the authority of the Commissioner. Per the panel’s direction, the Commissioner will promptly reconsider the matter and make a determination of the appropriate discipline consistent with the standards set forth in today’s decision. All clubs will be advised when that decision is made.”

I no doubt agree that there was a full-fledged bounty system. But Goodell didn't have enough evidence on certain players.

The real truth? There was prob a lot more players involved. Roman Harper , Malcolm jenkins sedrick Ellis etc. some of there hits really came into question.
