    Its funny how they cut this guy to make room for one of our own. Lumpkin. I looked at some Tampa area articles after reading what PackerRS posted and alot of the fans down there were pissed that TB cut him.

    Special teams coach is really happy to get this guy I am sure. Could save his job........maybe not. Clifton Smith has been having health issues the last year or so but hopefully.......he can do for us what Desmond Howard did during our last Superbowl. Put us over the top.

    OH SNAP!!! Ha ha. But, he has a history of concussions. Not so good. The bucs released him, that means they must think he is done. Well, can't be worse than what we got now.

    Hold your horses folks. Here's the buc fans discussing it.

    [ame="http://www.bucschat.com/showthread.php?t=25606"]Clifton Smith and Hardman got cut loose... - BucsChat.com[/ame]

    Not exactly glowing reviews. Last thing MM likes is a guy who can't hold onto the ball. Sounds like this guy has fumblitis BAD!

    He does fumble alot when u look at the stat sheet.

    3 fumbles on 12 rushes
    2 fumbles on 36 KR in 2008 but none over 31 in 2009.

    He's worth a look. Think we'll cut one of the FBs now with a third HB?

    Let's not forget that he is the reason we lost to the bucs, he's a pro bowler and he will play batter and harder for a playoff team.and there is no way he doesn't make The team.

    when comparing his stats to Jordys I dont see a big difference. I must be missing something.

    Perhaps the only difference is that this guy isn't also our 3rd best WR on the team?

    Hope we sign him. When healthy and holding on to the ball he's pretty good. I remember him getting us on a big KR last season.

    ....Only the last one makes any sense to me. Wonder where he's headed? Sounds like they were offering slightly more money or what? Ted's such a tightass if that's the case.

    Ted probably doesn't want to pay him RB/KR/PR money, just KR/PR money. He can probably find a place that needs both, in which case they'll pay more for him.

    Bummer, dude might have had some potential for us. Wonder if that's a bargaining tactic.

    I could be wrong though.. Re-reading it, it sounds like he might not have made a decision yet.

    Either way, he's a low risk/high reward kind of guy. He's had some serious injuries in recent years, but is pretty good when he's healthy.

    Which is what? The difference of maybe 200k? That's what chaps my ***. We overpay guys every year, at least this extra quarter million or whatever it may be would be worth it to keep key guys out of harms way on returns.
