HoosierCat Posted July 26, 2007 Report Share Posted July 26, 2007 Simeon Rice anyone? Per PFT...BUCS BOUNCE RICEIn a move that is not a shocker but is still nevertheless surprising, the Bucaneers have cut defensive end Simeon Rice, according to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com.Rice was due to earn a base salary of $7.25 million in 2007, the final year of his contract. Per Glazer, the Bucs asked Rice to take a pay cut, and Rice refused.The move creates $7.25 million in cap space for the Bucs, which could be used to sign quarterback Daunte Culpepper, with whom the team met last week. Culpepper reportedly is seeking a one-year deal, which shouldn't be a problem for Gruden, who realizes that this one year could be his last year in Tampa.Look for Rice to be courted by the Detroit Lions, who are coached by former Bucs defensive line coach Rod Marinelli. Other possibilities (as we see it) are the Bears, Steelers, and Vikings.He was hurt last season but had double-digit sacks just about every year previously. I have to think he'd be an upgrade over B-rob...Waddya think, mem? Sign 'em? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
