Found March 12, 2013 on The Bay Cave:

As the free agent signing period is getting closer, the Buccaneers will be tied to more and more free agents. Today is no different. Monday night, Adam Schefter reported on Twitter the Bucs were in on the top defensive backs this offseason. Tuesday morning, Roy Cummings of The tampa Tribune confirms the Bucs plans when free agency starts:   As the 4 pm signing start approaches the Bucs are focused heavily on attempts to sign S Dashon Goldson and CB Brent Grimes. — Roy Cummings (@RCummingsTBO) March 12, 2013   Obviously things can change, but early reports all have the Bucs looking to sign Dashon Goldson as free agency opens. The news on Grimes has been mixed across several media outlets. Earlier, CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora wrote how the Buccaneers were going to do whatever it takes to sign defensive end Cliff Avril. It’s easy to assume that as Michael Bennett is set to hit the open market, but signing Avril will go against what general manager Mark Dominik recently said about the ends currently on the roster. Expect the Buccaneers to be tied to more free agents as the start of the signing period draws closer. What you can be sure of is that Dominik, Schiano, and the Bucs have a plan and that plan does not include disclosing who they are targeting. The post Bucs “focused” on Goldson and Grimes? appeared first on The Bay Cave.
