Bucs re-sign Phillips & Stevens

by Roland Johnson on March 7, 2009

The Tampa Bay Buccaneersdecided to further strengthen there tight end depth by re-signing Jereamy Stevens. Stevens, 29, has 184 career receptions for 2,044 yards and 21 touchdowns. In 2008 Stevens hauled in 36 receptions for m397 yards and 2 touchdowns. Stevens adds another pass catching threat to pair with the newly acquired Kellen Winslow, with the both of them on the field it should cause as a disadvantage to opposing defenses.

The team has also brought back “Captain Calcium” Jermaine Phillips . Phillips, 29, has started 72 of the 94 games he’s played in since entering the league as a fifth round pick in 2002.  With 11 interceptions, 34 passes defensed and 10 forced fumbles, Phillips adds depth, veteran leadership and a physical presence in the secondary. It should also allow the Bucs to continue to groom Sabby Piscitelli rather then rushing his development.

In other news the Bucs have no interest in going after the malcontent that is Terrell Owens. Ownes who has been a cancer in many lockers rooms just inst a fit for what the team is looking for on and off the field, For all his ability to change a game. He has even more to cripple an entire organization.

The Bucs are also interested in free agent CB Karl Paymah. Paymah a 2005 third round pick of the Broncos out of Washington State.
