    Ruud was a solid pro with the Bucs...hope he's got something left in the tank

    I remember Rudd from IDP in fantasy football. I just wonder why he wasn't on a team. Too slow?

    Ruud is good in coverage but has become an awful tackler over the last few years

    He was just cut by the Saints defense, doesn't say a whole lot about what he still has left.

    As someone who follows the Bucs I will say no. However maybe Wade can work his magic with him.

    Manning on punts and Forsett on kickoffs I think.

    Who did we get in the draft this year that was a KR/PR?

    Keyshaun Martin.

    Maybe Keyshawn if they feel comfortable with him holding onto the ball.

    We can have any warm body returning kickoffs to just kneel the ball in the EZ and we'd be better off than what Holliday did.

    Kinda hard to do anything when no one blocks for you either.

    Ruud was flat out awful with Tennessee.

    True, but if you know the blocking sucks why try to take the ball out of the EZ every time?

    Forsett will likely return kicks.

    I'm guessing Martin, keo and Forsett will be considered for punts.

    In 2011, Barrett Ruud rated 48 out of 51 ILBs with minimum 25% snaps. He was pretty equally poor in all areas, though better in pass rush.

    In 2010, Ruud was 49th out of 50 ILBs, but with a middle-of-the-pack cover grade.

    In 2009, Ruud was top 10 in coverage.

    Hopefully that was because he was in a bad scheme and on a bad team.

    Well, Tennessee does have that affect on people.
