You look at a digital clock that says 4:21 and you feel like its four thirty; see it on an analog face clock and you think its only quarter after.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Trade or Release LeGarratte Blount

Headlines around the NFL are suggesting that LeGarrette Blount could lose his Tampa Bay roster spot by either being released by the team or as a trade with Seattle if their running back Marshawn Lynch misses significant time because of his off the field antics.
