Our friends at PewterReport.com report that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter to a one-year contract.
Trotter was unexpectedly released by the Eagles to cap his second tenure wit the team. He drew little interest beyond Tampa, and will bring his non-Cover 2 skills to a Cover 2 defense.
It really is a bad fit, in our view. Trotter doesn't have the speed to cover the deep zones that will be his assignment in the Cover 2 defense. So unless he's used only in clear running situations, he'll be a potential liability in the team's base defense.
So now Gruden is collecting linebackers as well as quarterbacks?

On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
I like this move, as he brings leadership and experience to the team, but especcially to barret ruud, who he will be able to teach, and if the reports are true then the role that they are planning on using him for are perfect
