Default Dunn Returns to the Bucs

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3286936

After letting him walk away in 2002, the Bucs sign Warrick Dunn. After Cadillac's injury, I think its a good signing for them

Very nice move. He should be able to complement Graham fairly well.

Meh...I think they need someone bigger to run between the tackles and spell Graham. I'm not sure if Pittman has the ability to do that, I've always been a bit ambivalent on him.

Ah, was really hoping he'd go to the Colts rather than stay in the division. Would have made much more sense, IMO. Much better chance to get a ring, and playing for Dungy in his last year.

Still, he'll get a great reception back in the dome...

Caddy is still walking with a pronounced limp. No one knows for sure, but I've heard that he's unlikely to play at all next year and 50/50 to play ever again.

Terrible injury.

It does add good depth. He could see the ball maybe 5ish times a game which is good.

But he is no longer the underrated football player that he used to be. Averaged 4.2 ypc 2 years ago (take out his 90 yarder and it was 3.68) and 3.2 yards last year. I wouldnt expect too much out of him, but maybe the Bucs will be smart and not run him up the middle every down.

Why even waste the cap space on him when there are so many young rb's in the draft?

It might cost them more if they draft a decent running back in the draft. And why take a risk on one of the RB if you can sign an already proven RB that has great leadership, no character issues and comes at a moterately cheap price. Dunn has some fuel left in his tank i guarantee you that.

DUNN RETURNS TO TAMPA

Veteran running back Warrick Dunn will finish his career where it started.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, Dunn has agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team that made him a first-round draft pick out of Florida State back in 1997.

It's a two-year, $6 million deal, and it pays $2 million in guaranteed money. Dunn is scheduled to earn $3 million in the first year of the deal.

He joins a backfield that includes Earnest Graham, Michael Bennett, and Cadillac Williams. But Williams, a top-five pick in 2005, is rehabilitating from a ruptured patellar tendon and there are rumors that he might not be able to play in 2008, if ever. The arrival of Dunn will do nothing to quell those rumors.
Dunn spent five seasons with the Bucs before signing with the Falcons.

The Texans were interested, and Dunn reached out to the Cowboys since he was released last Monday, a day after the Falcons signed running back Michael Turner to a long-term, big-money deal.

Its also widly talked about and reported on Pewterreport.com Both very credible.

There are also other articles on many web sites about it. Google it I dont have the time.

http://www.nfl.com/freeagency/story;...o&confirm=true

TAMPA, Fla. -- Six years after leaving the franchise he helped turn into a Super Bowl contender, running back Warrick Dunn is coming back to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection signed Monday with the Bucs, who needed to bolster their running game because Carnell "Cadillac" Williams missed most of last season with a knee injury. There are also lingering questions about when Williams will be able to play again.

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports it's a two-year, $6 million contract, including $2 million in guaranteed money and $3 million in the first year of the deal.

The 33-year-old played the first five seasons of his career with Tampa Bay, establishing himself as one of the league's top all-around backs. He was integral, along with Derrick Brooks, Warren Sapp, John Lynch and Mike Alstott, in transforming the Bucs from perennial losers to a championship team.

He spent the past six seasons with Atlanta, leaving the Bucs two months after former coach Tony Dungy was fired -- in part -- for not being able to get Tampa Bay to the Super Bowl.

Dungy's replacement, Jon Gruden, made a pitch to retain Dunn -- thought to be an ideal fit for the coach's version of the West Coast offense -- but a tight salary-cap situation prevented the Bucs from paying what the Falcons could offer in free agency.

Tampa Bay, which reached the NFC Championship Game with Dunn in 1999, won its only NFL title the year he left. The Bucs have since missed the playoffs three of five seasons.

Dunn flourished in Atlanta, becoming the franchise's third-leading rusher with 5,979 rushing yards. Last season, he became the 22nd player in NFL history to surpass 10,000 yards rushing.

He still ranks third on the Buccaneers' career rushing list with 4,200 rushing yards, and overall has 463 career receptions for 4,009 yards with 15 receiving touchdowns.

The Falcons released Dunn last week, two days after signing free agent running back Michael Turner, reportedly for $34.5 million with about $15 million guaranteed. He had three straight 1,000-yard seasons 2004-06, but only rushed for 720 yards in 2007 with the Falcons reeling from Michael Vick's dogfighting case.

Dunn, nearly as wellknown for his charitable work as his accomplishments on the field, has maintained a home in Tampa throughout his career. With the Bucs' running back situation, speculation about a possible return began as soon as Atlanta cut him.

Williams, the NFL's offensive rookie of the year in 2005, tore the patellar tendon in his right knee last September and missed the final 12 games of the season. The Bucs have had little to say about his status, except that he faces a tough rehabilitation.

Earlier Monday, the Bucs signed free-agent tight end Ben Troupe and wide receiver Antonio Bryant. Troupe played for the Tennessee Titans the past four seasons, starting 29 games. Bryant was a second-round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2002 then moved to the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and San Francisco 49ers in 2006.
