Banks Predicts Dunta to Tampa Kind Of

He just looks like a dick, doesn't he?
Don Banks of CNNSI.com posted a front-page story about free agents and who he thinks will sign where. He only mentions Tampa Bay as the destination of one pending free agent, Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson. He bold predicts “Where He Will Sign” in the header, and then backs off.

Where he will sign: Tampa Bay — The Bucs clearly won’t break the bank for the former Texans franchise player, but if Robinson’s market turns out to be soft and the price tag is reasonable, the Bucs could target him and land a youthful (27) but experienced option (six-year veteran) to replace the aging Ronde Barber, who turns 35 in April. Other teams expected to shop in the cornerback market this offseason include the Falcons, Vikings, Titans and Packers.

So he goes from “will sign” to “could target him” and then mentions other possible landing sites. Way to stick to those guns.

Robinson is probably the second-best corner in the free agent market next to Leigh Bodden of the Patriots. Bodden desperately wants to stay in New England and may take a light deal to do so, and that leaves Robinson and a boatload of old and dried-up corners on the free agent market. Robinson has been a good player at times, but has a bad attitude and his play has fallen off lately and now his performance doesn’t match his mouth. I mean, he started all 16 games and had no picks. Then again, so did Ronde, but that was his first season like that in 12 years and the roles they play are completely different. I don’t think Robinson is a good fit for this team’s scheme or locker room. Chances are better that the team will target a corner in the draft and continue to bring along E.J. Biggers and Elbert Mack.

Would Aaron Kampman be a good addition for the Bucs? His name keeps coming up as a quality, underrated DE. His last standout years was 2006 (59 tackles, 30 assists and 15.5 sacks).

Eric Berry could play some corner. Just sayin’.

@campyone: I agree. And that’s part of the reason why I want the Bucs to draft him — his versatility in the secondary is unmatched. I just wanted to go a day without mentioning Berry’s name in a blog entry. I think people are getting fatigued with my mancrush.

There’s a report that the Cardinals only want a 3rd round pick for Bouldin. I’d take that in a heartbeat.
