Good pick up by the Bucs. Fits well in their Cover 2 scheme.

Because this "all-pro LB" is weak against the run and misses a lot of tackles. He is not tough enough to play SLB, and why have Brooks change positions when he has been an amazing WLB his whole career? He is either playing SS or backing up Derrick.

I think he meant Pro Bowl LB? If so, it's not that much of a stretch considering he was a Pro Bowler in 2005.

He's 3 lbs heavier than their current SLB Nece....you're right about the fact they will be soft against the run tho. I'm guessing they address their DL situation in the draft tho.

Thank you, sorry for any confusion.

Yeh, he misses tackles, so does Urlacher, my point being who doesn't, In 2004 – June’s first year as a starter – he led his team in tackles, posting 128 stops. Pro Bowl honors followed the season after, and last year June’s 162 tackles were again a team-high.

I'll take that anyday.

Damn, tough to respond to that one. McAllister gives the Bucs a lot of problems, none of which June will improve on.

He'll be another Buc to play well against the Vick's and Reggie Bush's of the division though.

Stats mean nothing for linebackers, just watch him play and you will understand why the Colts didn't want him back and why I am unimpressed by the signing.

Flyboy is right, McAllister will truck June all day.

TB just got a guy who can play, but I'm not sure if he can play for Tampa. He is very small, and may get run over by the running attacks that he will face two time per year in NO, ATL, and CAR.

I think it is a good pickup for the Bucs, he is young and should fit in well in their scheme. How many years does Brooks have left in the tank? They will probably use June opposite Brooks, and then have him replace Brooks when he retires.

Thats what I see happening, I think he is an upgrade over Nece.

I wouldn't say stats mean nothing??

They certanly don't tell the whole story obviously, I have watched him play, and as I said previously, he'll miss tackles, who doesn't?, but he'll also make plenty of plays for us, as he did in Indy, hell, thats football!

As for you being unimpressed, your entitled to your opinion.

That's what I hope for from him, some big plays and touchdowns, but he is not a steady starting OLB. He needs to be on the field on passing downs though.

The rumors of him being in a Giants uniform sent chills down my spine. Im so happy he's anywhere but our team. Whew, that was close. We almost took part in some Cover 2 suckdom.

So far, the fact that Reese isn't doing a damn thing in FA is really starting to win me over. So far an A+ goes to our first year GM. This guy gets it.

As for the Bucs, dont discount Brooks moving to SAM. He played some SAM for them just this past year, and is slowing down. I don't think you sign Cato June to play SS. He's either at WILL or at SAM. I see them moving Brooks over and playing Cato at WILL.

Don't know how I feel about the signing. Its ok if its for cheap, but they still need some LBs in the draft.

For 85% of the year, the Colts defense was embarrassing to say the least. And Chicago's defense wasn't exactly dominant in the 2nd half of the season, or the playoffs either.
