Dunn weighing options



Warrick Dunn is taking some time to evaluate "the landscape," agent Jim Steiner said Tuesday night.

The Falcons free agent running back visited with the Bucs Monday, just hours after being released.

Steiner reportedly contacted the Dallas Cowboys to gage interest in Dunn, but the team is less than $3-million under the salary cap and has a more pressing need at receiver. Dunn also is expected to have a dialogue with the Houston Texans, Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts.

The Bucs are believed to have outlined the parameters of a contract for Dunn. If no concrete options materialize, he could agree to terms with Tampa Bay in a few days. But he might opt to visit a few more teams.

In other news, Bucs free agent center John Wade dined with coaches in Houston Tuesday night and will meet other members of the organization Wednesday at Reliant Stadium. Wade became expendable when the Bucs signed Saints center Jeff Faine hours into the free agent signing period.
