    As well as three days of intense practice the Senior Bowl is also the place free agency is initially broached. The rumors around Mobile center on Alex Mack potentially finding a new home in 2014. Sources say its far from a given the All Pro center will be resigned by the Cleveland Browns and early speculation has Tampa Bay as Mack’s new home.

    That link is where I get my contract predictions from, I hope it helps you guys. My numbers are not accurate of course but I did my best to guess the market value of players signed.

    I'm no capologist, not even close so I'm guessing here..

    Cutting Derek Landri, Davin Joseph, Michael Koenen and Trading Donald Penn, plus giving Gerald McCoy his new contract would give us around 38-41 million dollars in cap space but again I'm just guessing here and did not include the Barth pay cut plus the Revis bonus conversion that would save even more cap space.

    Coach Lovie has already stated that we'd be going max on the cap (you have to meet the salary floor anyway) imagine what we could do with that kind of cap space? We could lock up Lavonte David and sign key free agents as well.

    Signing draft classes are around 2-4 million against the cap I believe (not counting UDFA)

    Great work!

    Not a fan of your first pick or the Sanchez signing, but love the rest of it

    Cassel opting out of his contract today, anyone interested as a veteran backup/competition? Has ties to Licht.

    Thanks G! I'm a fan of Amaro. I think there's a chance 3 TE's get selected in the 1st round (Ebron, Amaro and Jenkins) I like Jace more out of the other two because he's more balanced IMO

    As far as the back up QB position goes.. I look at Mark Sanchez as a better option out of Vick, McCown, Cassell, etc.

    Sanchez was above average when he was surrounded by weapons and I know all you think about when you hear his name is "butt fumble" lol but I believe he just might give Glennon better competition over the other free agent QB's if he hits the market


    If you have great defense, create turnovers and great special teams, you can win 10 games - Lovie Smith

    Bucs were interested in him as a free agent last year.. That was the old regime but like you said Jason Licht is familiar with him as is our DC coach Fraizer.

    Quik's Mock Offseason 1.0:

    Release:

    Davin Joseph - $6,000,000 savings
    Michael Koenen - $3,250,000 savings

    Resign/tender:

    Bobby Rainey
    Jamon Meredith
    Danny Gorrer
    Dekoda Watson
    Jeff Demps
    Erik Lorig
    Andrew Economos
    Deveron Carr

    Restructure:

    Donald Penn

    Sign:

    Peanut Tillman - CB, three years
    An experienced starter that gives the Bucs a nice trio of corners to help keep up with the Saints and Falcons.

    Corey Wootten - LE, two years
    Wootten will battle it out with Gholston for a starting position on the left side. He also has experience playing inside at defensive tackle.

    Pat Angerer - OLB/MLB, one year
    Adam Hayward's replacement that can fill in at any linebacker position. He should also be a key contributor on special teams.

    Jeremy Maclin - WR, one year
    A classic low risk, high reward signing. He should see plenty of action in the slot with defensive backs focused on Jackson, Williams, and Seferian-Jenkins.

    Draft:

    1) Anthony Barr - DE/SLB, UCLA
    I think Lovie could easily draft a quarterback at this spot, but I don't think Bridgewater, Manziel, or Blake Bortles will be available. Barr was the unanimous #1 senior defensive player in the country and should be a heavy favorite for defensive rookie of the year under Lovie Smith.

    2) Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TE, Washington
    Monster tight end prospect that offers Rob Gronkowski type of upside. Great blocker/receiver and perfect safety net for Mike Glennon.

    4) Brandon Thomas - OG, Clemson
    He's an experienced tackle for Clemson that should be a great fit at guard in the NFL. Could possibly start day one at either guard spots.

    5) Deandre Coleman - DT, Cal
    Recruited by Tedford at Cal, Coleman will provide depth behind Akeem Spence at NT.

    7) Tom Hornsey - P, Memphis
    Accurate, strong-legged punter that will replace the overpaid Michael Koenen.

    A lot of this makes sense, though Im not sold on the Barr pick but if it happens due to BPA then this would not be bad and makes our team better going forward.

    Can somebody ask bucc4life why his mock(which isn't horrible but seems overreaching) doesn't involve us replacing Foster at MLB or drafting Derek Carr at 7?

    Nice break down Q!

    But you would use a 1st round pick on a part time pass rusher? I know we run a base 4-3 but we're gonna be running a lot of nickel especially when we play our division rivals and coach Lovie relies on his front 4 to create pressure (he doesn't blitz much in his scheme)

    We have role players in Bowers and Gholston who can play inside/outside but can Gholston become the pass rusher we desperately need in just his second year? Can the Bowers pick finally pay off? I don't like the risk.. Joe Cullen is a good DL coach but I'd rather get a proven guy, a consistant guy in free agency to start and help mentor our young DL group.

    I like Barr and I get the Von Miller comparison but I don't see Lovie tweaking his defensive scheme to much because he knows what works for him.. There's a reason why he has a nickel corner coach on his staff, nickel corner is practically a starting position nowadays haha

    I expect a Buccaneers defense not a DEN, SEA or SF type defense

    In the scenario of the quarterbacks and Clowney coming off the board before we’re on the clock, I just see Barr being too tempting for Lovie to resist; Barr has elite athleticism, top notch instincts, and is a hard worker on and off the field.

    Anthony Barr is 6’4” and is typically listed anywhere from 245 to 250 lbs. That’s nearly identical measurements to Robert Mathis which isn’t a bad comparison for Barr. If Lovie doesn't use him in the Von Miller role, which is probably most ideal for Barr, he can still be productive as a full time defensive end. I think you can expect 10+ sacks a year from the RE position with the ceiling to be a perennial Pro Bowler.

    On a side note, what do you think about adding Justin Tuck in free agency?

    I wanted you to elaborate a little to see your reasoning behind the Barr pick, I see your line of thinking now. Also that kid looks so light on his feet in coverage! Athleticism is off the charts.

    For Justin Tuck, he could solidify the LDE position (both in the run and pass) he started off slow this past season but came on strong at the end.

    He had HOF DE Strahan mentor him then he did the same with JPP so he'd be a perfect fit for our Bucs and solid vet for our youngsters

    I think he's a perfect fit too and will probably put him in my next mock if I decide to do one. I can see Lovie coveting a proven veteran end like Tuck to bolster our pass-rush. Plus, he'll be cheaper than Hardy or Michael Johnson and is younger than Jared Allen and Peppers.
