Taking roll at One Buc Place

TAMPA, Fla. -- I'm out at One Buccaneer Place and about to head out to the first of two minicamp practices Tuesday.

My first duty will be to take a roll call. We'll see if linebacker Barrett Ruud, who has stayed away from workouts because he reportedly wants a new contract, shows up for the mandatory session. Same for quarterback Brian Griese, who I sincerely doubt will show.

Griese has no future in Tampa. He knows it and the team knows it. The Bucs still are holding out hope they might be able to get something for Griese in a trade, but don't count on it. They'll almost certainly have to release him at some point.

I'll be back with an update this afternoon on who's here and who's not.
