Recently some previous notes revealed what some people close to the Buccaneers organization said were top priorities of the 2012 offseason
. Within the first 24 hours of the opening of free agency, the Buccaneers cleared half the list, and since have addressed a third position.
Cornerback - Added Eric Wright, free agent from the Detroit Lions
Offensive Line - Added Carl Nicks, all-pro guard, from the New Orleans Saints
Quarterback - Added Dan Orlovsky, free agent from the the Indianapolis Colts
What's next? There are many factors to consider:
- The unaddressed (and rumored) targeted position for the Buccaneers is linebacker
- With the release of Jeff Faine is offensive line back on the table?
- What about moves other teams have made?
- Orlovsky received a two-year deal, while the other three received five-year deals - why?
- Are the Buccaneers done with Free Agency?
- Are the Buccaneers satisfied with the Cornerback and Offensive line squads?
These are the questions which will be addressed over the next few weeks leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft.
