Default Amobi Okoye GONE 1 year to the Bucs for a measly $2 mill. GJ FO

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/77...ye-source-says

Bucs nabbed him for a cheap as **** deal with ZERO risk. This was linked in another thread but I'd like more discussion on it.

Apparently it's $2 mill, though if that's the case I'll be appalled that our FO couldn't match.

I'm ****ing livid right now. We still have pleanty of cap room and we couldn't pony up for say 3 ****ing million on a 24 (25 this year) year old who had over 20 QB pressures and played the second most snaps on the bears interior D-line?

I don't ****ing get it. We have a healthy amount of cap room left and a huge void. Why did we pass up on a young kid who would have excelled with us on passing downs.

There must be something we don't know. Perhaps he's facing suspension?

Also, why wouldn't the bears resign him for that paltry sum? Something doesn't add up...

I'm not worried about DT's at all. John Fox is to DT's what Mike Shanahan is to RB's. They will get it figured out.

Another guy TB looked at, Derek Landri, played for Fox in Carolina. Would seem to be a good rotational DT ... not sure if we've expressed any interest.

little surprised at this one. But like others said. It sounds to good a deal to be true so there is something we likely don't know on this. Maybe they have a trade worked out in principal with some team for a stud DT?

They must love the guys they have on the roster already and feel confident about who they can get in the draft. Remember, they traded Gaffney for Jarmon one for one. Jarmon is their guy.

Mad about a guy that wouldn't even start.... hes a rotational player more like a nickel DT we already have that in Robert Ayers.

Why is everyone so mad.

I bet we could land Fat Albert for half that. I thought he played OK for the Bucs at the end of the year.

Agreed. Although I'm not sure what motivates him anymore... He and Rogers wouldn't break my heart to try to win a Lombardi.
