Bucs Whack Bolden

Juran Bolden, CB, along with a few other players of no note, was released from the team today to make room for FA's they plan to sign that weren't drafted. With the Bucs now stacked at the corner position, the Bucs probably felt that Bolden was no longer in their future plans. Remember that they now have Barber, Kelly, Buchannon, Davis, Cox, Zemaitis, and their draft pick Hamilton (along with some guy named Hendricks). Needless to say, the backfield was busting at the seams. The Bucs aren't likely to go into the season with more than 5, maybe 6 corners.

It's going to be an interesting year for this defense. With Buchannon and Davis, the Bucs now have some serious speed at corner. Buchannon has already begun to play more like he's capable, showing his stuff late last season as he unseated Bolden for the right to start across from Barber while Kelly was on IR. Now if Davis can resurrect himself, the Bucs may have the speed to hang with anyone in the secondary, as Safety Dabby Piscitelli brings excellent speed deep as well.
