Default Bucs to bring in Saints DE Charles Grant!!!!

BUCS BRINGING IN GRANT

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are bringing in Saints defensive end Charles Grant for a visit.

The significance? Grant carries the Saints' franchise tag.

By rule, Grant may sign an offer sheet with any other team. If the Saints should opt not to match, they would receive two first-round picks as compensation.

Such an outcome is highly unlikely, since the Bucs hold the fourth overall pick. And trading down before signing Grant isn't an option; the Bucs must give up their own first-rounder, not someone else's.

The more likely outcome is that, if the Bucs decide to make a play for Grant, Tampa and New Orleans will work out a trade. And with the Bucs potentially going for broke in 2007 under coach Jon Gruden and G.M. Bruce Allen, both of whom might be gone by next year, we wouldn't rule out a package including the Bucs' third-round pick in 2007 and a conditional pick in 2008.

I think it'll take alot to bring him here, and I don't think it would be worth the amount of draft picks we'd have to give up. It would at least be our second rounder, or maybe two 3rds.

I could see him on our team. He would add that extra bit of pass rush we have been lacking. Of course I would only condone this trade if it was for the right price.

A late 2nd or less and I would welcome this trade with open arms. Charles Grant is better than any DE in the draft this year IMO, especially since he fits our defense better than Anderson/Adams.

Question

IMO, There's no way they're parting with 2 #1's for Grant, and I really doubt the Saints would work out a trade with a divisional rival that gives them anything less than those 2 #1's.

I think this is more about next season, Grant could be an UFA, one, who would have already toured the facility, and got a feel for the Bucs, it could put us in a solid postion to sign him, players love to feel wanted.
