TAMPA, Fla. -- I have just arrived at One Buccaneer Place, where there aren’t many signs of life -- at least in the media room.
Right now, it’s WDAE’s Whitney Johnson and me. We’re peeking through the windows and trying to see if we can get a glimpse at the Bucs’ draft board. Whitney and I are getting a little older and our eyes aren’t as sharp as they once were. But we’re pretty sure we were able to make out the words “Charles McRae’’ and “Eric Curry’’ at the top of the draft board.
Whitney also keeps a pair of binoculars handy and I borrowed them and caught a glimpse of Raheem Morris. I’m not an expert, but I can lip read a little and I’m pretty sure I saw Morris, after breaking out in laughter, saying something like, “Mike [Tomlin], you’re my buddy, but I wouldn’t even give you Dexter Jackson, if I still had him, for Ben Roethlisberger right now.’’
Anyway, I’m set up now and we’ll be bringing you much more from around the NFC South as the afternoon and evening go on.
