Pre-Free Agency Showdown in Mobile

 VS.  

I'm not sure how many of you have a password for ESPN.com's Insider.  One of the perks of Insider is the ability to look up stories about your favorite teams, in all the major sports.  Another option for finding these article's is through Sport Spyder.  Sport Spyder lists links to major press articles and also independent sources including this very website.

Anyways, in my search of ESPN Insider today, I came across this interesting article from the Tampa Tribune.  The article is part of their "Bucs Bonus" and discusses how Jon Gruden and his coaching staff will square off with Mike Nolan and his staff in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama January 27.

More importantly is that both teams have a ton of cap room going into free agency and have similar needs on the defensive side of the ball: the defensive line and the secondary.  As I've read more and more about the free agent market, I have definitely taken a liking to Justin Smith for the defensive line.
