Bucs Bring in Trotter for Visit

The Bucs brought in Jeremiah Trotter to workout yesterday afternoon. The Bucs lost Antoine Cash last weekend against the Jaguars and are looking for another MLB to help fill out the depth. Trotter was a surprise release by the Eagles earlier this week and has worked out for a couple teams. There has not been any talks as of yet on how the workout went or if the Bucs offered him a deal.

As I said in an earlier post I think the Bucs need to make this happen. Trotter will provide a veteran presence up the middle and will address a need the Bucs have with run support. The Bucs struggled in stopping the run last year and have not shown signs that they have fixed it so far. The Bucs schedule is heavy on teams that run the ball and Trotter will help to be able to fill the void.

The Bucs also brought in former Buccaneer linebacker Al Singleton and traded for linebacker Jerry Mackey who the Bucs cut earlier this year. The best option for the Bucs is to go with Trotter and not spend time on the other guys. The Bucs have the cash and the room, they need to make the move.
