A couple things to list that you might be wrong about. 1. Donald Penn is only 26 years old, so he is relatively young for a LT.
2. He was able to hold his own against premiere pass rushers over the past 2 years. He was missing the mauler of Aaron Sears at LG also. He has shut down guys like Peppers, Jared Allen, Demarcus Ware, John Abraham, and Will Smith. Peppers only had 2 sacks in 1 game agianst the Bucs this past year bc he was lined up against Trueblood, not Penn.
He gave up 7 sacks in the past two seasons, and as much as I'd love for the Bucs to keep him, the Front Office doesn't want to shell the money out for an extension, so I think he would be worth a late first round pick for a top 7 LT in this league.
Alright, so if all this is true why the hell would Tampa trade him?
