When it comes to free agency, there’s only one NFC South fan base that should be letting its mind wander too far.
Although general manager Mark Dominik has thrown out hints the Bucs won’t make as big a splash in free agency as they did last year, they still will be players.
That doesn’t mean Dominik is definitely planning on going after Welker. But think about the possibilities.
Throw Welker into the mix (and maybe add a pass-catching tight end) and Tampa Bay suddenly could have the ingredients for a high-octane passing game.
Quarterback Josh Freeman is headed into a contract year. The Bucs want to see Freeman succeed. The best way to assure that happens is to surround him with talent and Welker could give the Bucs an element they lacked last season.
