Amidst the swirling speculation of rumors being floated by both local and national media pundits who cover the NFL on a regular basis. Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune is reporting a move made late Thursday evening by the Buccaneers. That consequently, has gone largely unnoticed by his national media counter parts. Suspects that said move could have far reaching expectations should receiver Mark Bradley, whom the team scraped off the scrape heap last season after he was released mid way through the season by the Chiefs stay healthy. Could pay huge dividends.
The team made a qualifying tender which would net them a second round pick should the 28-year old Bradley be signed to an offer sheet and the Bucs fail to match said offer. The 6-foot-1, 201-pound Bradley has surcomb to multiple knee injuries throughout his career since being drafted in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Bears.
Bradley has 92 career receptions for 1,283 yards and 9 touchdowns and boast a 13.9 yards per reception. Whether or not Bradley will live up to the expectations is a long shot and one that if true, is not a bet the Bucs should be taking part in.
