According to the Tampa Tribune, the Buccaneers are thinking about placing a first-round tender on restricted free agent running back  LeGarrette Blount. The Bucs are considering placing a first-round tender on Blount, in part because Dominik says he never wants to leave himself short at the running back position the way he did in 2010, especially now that the Bucs offense is a run-first attack. Of course, a second-round tender might be enough to keep anyone from stealing Blount away as well, but that is one of the decisions the Bucs have to make before the 4 p.m. March 12 deadline rolls around. Blount is a very effective power back that fell out of favor with head coach Greg Schiano last season.  I think a second round tender would be enough to keep teams from grabbing Blount.  He has had some fumbling issues in the past.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = ''+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
