After all, Trueblood has struggled during his time with the Bucs and his play was underwhelming in 2010. But it was said that Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph refused to re-sign with the Bucs unless Trueblood got a new deal of his own. Rather than risk losing one of the top guards in football, Dominik inked Trueblood in order to keep Joseph. Well, it seems as though the Bucs had seen enough of Trueblood because PewterReport.com's Scott Reynolds reports they gave him an ultimatum regarding his future with the team just last week.
