Because they love Conte and Reid makes NFL people scared because of his politics.

I've been advocating for the Bucs to sign Reid for months. Been advocating for them to cut Conte for years.

What can you do?

Complaining about it not being about winning, when the player is the one who made it about something else

Yep

Also minkah was on the board then we trade down.

Good move


Then licht does the unthinkable and draft a fatty that cant see the field.


Then derwin is killing it in the secondary his rookie year

I'd still take Vea over James but Fitz would've been the right move at 7 imo. Anyways, not the point. Maybe we will take a closer look at Thomas now depending how bad Conte is hurt.

I said it before the draft and I say it again now. James > Fitz.

Still though, this makes for an interesting "what could have been" We draft Fitz. We open the season and Ryan Fitzpatrick is on fire. Minkah files for trademark on "Fitzmagic". Ryan and Minkah bump into each other in the shower,

When you look at what Evans is doing it was a mistake to not draft James, especially when our need in the Secondary was so much greater than the DL. That safety combo would’ve developed into one of the best in league history perhaps.

We could have had James, Davis and Stewart and when you factor in that James is a 3-down player unlike Vea...yeah, if they got a do over they would go in a different direction.

Jury is still out on that decision as we haven't seen Vea yet. And that won't be determined for another few seasons.

I loved Derwin James as a prospect. Vea was drafted with something else in mind. He is the eventual replacement for McCoy. They recognized the importance of the Dline and took a big step towards keeping it up to snuff. I can't fault that.

As to Vea being out, of course it's a concern. Sometimes, **** happens though. It may well turn out that this missed time will be an isolated incident. We will see. So long as he can stay healthy, I think he'll be fine.

Right? LOL

Also let's chill on our young secondary too. There's a lot of growing pains to get thru but there's a whole lot of talent there too.

Hey today I had a Steelers fan argue from the top of his lungs that Justin Evans is destined for an Ed Reed type of career. He is convinced that Evans will be no less than a first ballot HOF.

****, then paring him with Earl Thomas may give us the greatest safety duo ever after all.

Should we have drafted Derwin James or Minkah Fitzpatrick?

Well they would have filled a need and both have made an impact as rookies, whereas Vita Vea didn't really fill a major need and has yet to see the field. So it is understandable for our fan base to be thinking "what if", however if Vita Vea comes into the line up and dominates then all of this will be forgotten. Remember Joey Bosa didn't play in the first four games for the Chargers, they might have wondered "what if we drafted Jalen Ramsey instead?", but they soon forgot all about the other options when Bosa turned up and managed 10.5 sacks as a rookie in twelve games. Let's be patient before starting to think "we should have drafted that guy" because Vita Vea could come in and hit the ground running like those guys.

As for going after Earl Thomas. It would depend on the cost of the trade and what salary he is going to demand on his next contract. We do have some extensions coming up and if Earl wants a big pay day, that could conflict with our need to extend players like Kwon or Marpet considering we aren't exactly cap rich at the minute. It is one of the reasons why trading for Le'Veon Bell isn't really as good an option as it might seem because his pay day could cause us cap problems.

With that said, I would consider bringing in Eric Reid but it would be on the basis that he doesn't cause a rift in the locker room. It all depends on whether his teammates and coaches would be behind him, or would be looking at him thinking what are you doing? He'd be new here and it's not like when he was with the 49ers and having people he's played with multiple years having his back. So the political side could be an issue here but there's no doubt he's worthy talent wise. For me, as long as there's no issue within the locker room and coaching staff, sign him up if the price is right.
