08:07 AM ET 02.15 | Tampa Bay is ready to set sail. [The Buccaneers] have rolled over all available resources into the 2012 salary cap in anticipation of being more active in free agency, according to general manager Mark Dominik. "We'll be more active in free agency that we were last year," Dominik said Tuesday as new head coach Greg Schiano continued to work on filling out his staff. "We purposely rolled every penny we could into this year's cap. Clubs didn't have to do that, but we wanted to. We have plans." An ESPN report said Tampa Bay is carrying over $23.5 million from 2011, estimating the Bucs will have $60.5 million in cap space. ... "We'll be involved in free agency," Dominik said. "To what capacity, it depends on what the list looks like."

Unless someone is interested in nice weather only, not a good destination.

A lot of quitting football players on this team that need to be weeded out...

February 15, 2012  08:37 AM ET

They need a veteran presence on this team and I'm not talking about players whose best years are behind them.

I must need more coffee. I'm yawning.

Are they talking about a do-over? that would be a good start, sink the ship and lay a new keel....

I love reading comments from idiots who are clueless about the Bucs. To start, Atlanta is crappola. 2nd, they are the youngest team in the NFL, meaning they have a lot of growing to do. They weeded out the aging veterans to begin this rebuilding process. Third, they fired the junk coach who couldn't lead. Fourth, they now have money to add key players thru free agency, plus a strong draft setup, which they can trade for even more. So get a clue. The amazing Saints sat home and watched the Super Bowl, as did Atlanta. Tampa is ripe for a big jump. Heck, they won 10 game just two seasons ago idiots.
