Bucs release Deone Buccanon

He would be nice to have but why would Buccanon would sign with Bills since there isn't near enough playing time unless a starter goes down.  Plus, what do you do with Thompson when he's back?  He'd be a great back-up but I don't see why he'd sign here. 

Cut Thompson.  Bucannon's a better player anyway. Always be upgrading,  especially a player who fits perfect in McD's scheme.

Now we'll have a "wrong Allen" crowd. Honestly, how many of you have already thought the same thing?

It's very expensive to fly players in from Tampa.

 

First you have to pay the outrageous airfare $279, then there's the extra leg room charge, another $60  plus those damn luggage fees.

 

-PASS

He’s not a Tom Donahoe process player. PASS!

In addition, the New England Patriots have been awarded a fifth round compensatory draft pick in conjunction with the release of Deone Bucannon by Tampa Bay.   In the event Bucannon signs with New England, the Patriots' compensatory pick will move to the fourth round.

Why would the Bucs release him?

Somebody on these boards suggested that he was playing out of position in Tampa

That team is DESPERATE for defensive talent.

 

They must be one shaady organization to not be able to find a spot for him on a talent-deprived D.

I don’t know what role he would fill here when they already have a very very good player in Neal who does what he does.

Giants are also interested, and their DC used to coach him in Arizona 

Hopefully if it comes down to between us and them he chooses Buffalo because the Giants are awful.

Not really at the time they had NOTHING but Jason Croom at TE.  No way of knowing that their draft would being Knox and Sweeney, and then no way of knowing they would make Kroft Irrelevant in their First year.

two point scored and one

I'm guessing this ship has sailed since nobody picked him up.  Must be some issues if there were no takers.

Yeah but he ran that Big Nickel D in ARI which played to Buccanon's skillset. 

 

He's a strong safety masquerading as a LB.

This will be a one-year agreement, per ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter), which makes sense given Bucannon’s struggles during his platform year. The 2014 first-round pick finished as one of Pro Football Focus’ worst-graded linebackers last season, though he only played only 389 snaps in Steve Wilks‘ defense.

I feel like we've already been down this road with Bryan Scott getting EATEN ALIVE by Tom Brady and the New England Offense.

 

I still have nightmare flashbacks of "43's the Mike!"

 

Bryan Scott: 6'1" 220lbs

Deone Buccanon: 6'1" 218lbs

 

HARD PASS

 

@Boyst62, if you're out there, i know you feel this too

I'm sure that McDermott would know how to use him properly.

My concern is less about how our coaches use him, and more about how the opposition will abuse him.

 

We thought the plan for Scott was genius and air-tight. Using him as LB in the Nickel to give us more coverage on the underneath routes and TEs.

 

But all the Pats had to do was send in 1 RB along with the 3 WRs to force us into the Nickel alignment. Then they'd find 43, audible to a run, and run right at him. 5-7 yards a pop.

 

Good teams like the ones we'll face in the playoffs will exploit tweeners. Too big/slow to play DB, and too small to defend the Run. IMO, it's more a weakness than an advantage. They become the target.

 

Cant scheme or gameplan your way out of that.

How do teams abuse McD’s “big nickel”?

Who is playing where in that big nickel? Is a DB playing LB?
