The St. Petersburg Times' Stephen Holder predicts that MLB Barrett Ruud will be allowed to test unrestricted free agency.
Bucs GM Mark Dominik will meet with Ruud's agent at the Combine, but Holder would be "surprised" if there's substantial progress in contract talks. It sounds like Ruud is targeting an elite linebacker deal after asking for an extension for the last three years. The Bucs look unlikely to grant his wish.
