Wilkerson Visiting St. Louis

According to Pewter Report, Jimmy Wilkerson will be continuing his career-long tour of shitty teams today when he takes a free agent visit to St. Louis. And then next year, on to Detroit!
Although he will spend Friday morning in St. Louis, Wilkerson is a player Tampa Bay remains interested in re-signing.
The Bucs have about 20 open roster spots on the team right now, so it’s not like they have to cut someone in order to sign Wilkerson. And he’s not even all that expensive; I think his last contract was a two-year deal for $3-million, which is a deal for someone who can play pretty much any position on the defensive line. So it’s not a money thing. So are you ready for the conspiracy theory?
St. Louis signed DT Fred Robbins not long ago. If the Bucs allow Wilkerson to go to St. Louis, maybe they think the Rams will have signed enough depth at that position to cement them taking Sam Bradford (Oklahoma) in the draft instead of one of the top defensive tackles, leaving at least one of them to fall to the Bucs. Either that, or they don’t give a shit if Wilkerson leaves or not. I don’t know, I’m not as well-practiced at these conspiracy theories as Florio is.
