Bucs sign Cato June

Probably the best possible situation for him.

Nice move for both sides, akin to Ian Gold going there a few years ago. Screws up the mock I had been slowly working on a bit, but it's a good move. Nice immediate upgrade, and while the contract numbers haven't been released, my bet is that it's a 1 year deal and he'll get a shot to test the market again next year.

that is good news . do u think the bucs might switch him to safety

MaxV 03-17-2007 12:16 PM

No, I believe Bucs signed him as LB.

Good addition, he's a good fit.

No . . . he wasn't a very good safety at Michigan.

no..they run the same defense as colts.

We always have prioritized linebacker depth, but I don't know what kind of playing time he expects to receive, or what we expect to give. Now Scott has to change his Bucs mock again :D

The Colts didn't have Derrick Brooks starting in his position.....

Good signing by the Bucs.

SS
 
According to this article, June will compete at strongside linebacker or play strong safety.

This is interesting, Derrick Brooks still is the better WLB of the two. Then again, this is the Buccaneers and Jon Gruden we're talking about.

Strongside linebacker? Good luck with that.

He will most likely start.

Ryan Nece has been our starting SLB for 2 years, I don't think Cato June is going to change that......

Unless of course you think he will start at SS

Woody56 03-17-2007 12:33 PM

i think brooks is going to move to SLB and June stay at WLB

Yeah he definitely could change that. I think Brooks and Cato will both be the outside backers, not sure who will play where though. Once the contract numbers come in we'll have a better idea of what kind of playing time he'll be getting.

Bradentonian 03-17-2007 12:36 PM

I was really hoping to see Winborn on the field more this year with the potential to take over for Brooks

SeanTaylorRIP 03-17-2007 12:37 PM

Interested to see the price tag on this.

Komp 03-17-2007 12:38 PM

uhhh....
 
If they plan on him playing strong safety I'm sure the OC's in the NFC South are already licking their chops. He's perfect for their system at LB tho.

I don't think there is any way he would go somewhere he wouldn't be starting.

Space Ghost 03-17-2007 12:40 PM

Fits the scheme, not going to answer the question if he can play outside of that defense though.

toonsterwu 03-17-2007 12:42 PM

I think he'll beat out Nece for the strongside job, and while he's not an ideal fit for the strongside job, he can do a decent-solid job there potentially, akin to Ian Gold a few years ago. I don't think there's anyway he signed there unless he was told he'd have a good shot to start. I guess it's possible that they work him in the middle, although that would require improved DT POA play to protect him.

RaVeNFaNaCtIc 03-17-2007 01:07 PM

Thank god he is not coming to b-more.

Yeah, cause the thought of Jermaine Phillips at SS sends shivers up their spines.

In my opinion, there are two places to play June, weakside LB and SS. So unless Brooks is going to change positions, I see June playing safety.

Merlin 03-17-2007 01:22 PM

Why would we sign a all-pro LB to play S???
