The Bucs are on a list of five teams 'that should move already,' according to TheStreet.com.

The site cites the number of blacked-out games, the high price of tickets compared to other NFL teams in Florida, the Glazers' seeming preoccupation with Manchester United and a struggling economy among the reasons the team should leave Tampa sooner rather than later.

"You have an ownership too rich and preoccupied with international wins to care and you have a local fan base too rattled by the recession and put off by years of mediocrity to make an investment,'' Jason Notte writes.

"The result is a halfhearted attempt to field a competitive NFL team and a half-interested fan base almost hoping this week's Bucs game doesn't sell out so Fox can show the far superior NFC game of the week instead.''

The Chargers, Raiders, Rams and Lions also made the list.
