Alstott deal near?



Don't be surprised if the Bucs seal a deal with the A-Train in the coming days.

The talks between veteran fullback Mike Alstott and the Bucs continue, and while nothing is concrete yet, there could be some news on the horizon. That's not a guarantee, but if we had to bet on it, we'd say a deal will get done.

That should be welcome news for much of Tampa Bay, as many have been hoping the longtime fan favorite would return for a 12th season. What about you? Where do you stand?

Should the Bucs commit a roster spot and significant salary to an aging fullback who will be used sparingly? Or would that spot be better spent on someone else as the Bucs try to recover from a 4-12 season? It's a question the Bucs are in the process of answering. Here's your chance to chime in.

In the meantime, we'll keep working and will let you know when and if a deal gets consummated.
