    I agree with SR on this one, just a sad situation all around. Another option that could have worked out for the Bucs and Dotson would have been trading him when he first held out. There’s no way of knowing if Dotson would have gotten the same injury playing for another team, but there’s a chance he wouldn’t have. Also, the Bucs could have picked up Cherilus earlier in the offseason and given him more time to get comfortable in the offense. BTW, I’m not a fan of Cherilus and haven’t been going back to evaluating him at Boston College. Since he’s a Buc now though I at least hope his knee is 100% and he’s ready play at least a well as Dotson.

      First off this showed what L and L truly think of there depth obviously not the ridiculous fodder that they have been spewing. It’s sad that it takes this for the team to add depth as should have been done a month ago……… This may end up being a blessing for the fans and the team but certainly not Dotson .Hell Dotson really may have done the management a favor maybe the Glazers will give him a management fee LoL .Now let’s be honest the Bucs now have it both ways , no doubt they said Please just come to camp and we will re do your deal that is currently 50 percent below fair market value !! Well guess what ,Dot did what was best for the Team, not Dot and now it appears the Bucs are gonna do what’s best for the Bucs. Please don’t ever do an article regarding a player holding out and or not reporting because Dotson shouldn’t even have to ask for a raise and yes I hate to say it ,he sure shouldn’t have reported and let the L and L figure out the QB situation.Its actions like this that make agents hated ; well back up and follow the trail , it leads back to the team .Dotson was the good guy , the team guy in this ,I hope the Bucs don’t make him finish last.I don’t believe he was offered 4 mil and 4.5 in 2016 as I have heard rumored, I highly doubt it !!
      I say he would sign tomorrow for 3.5 ishand 3.75 ish for 16 so why not use this situation as a plus and sign him , 2.5 mil sign bonus the rest how they see fit over two years with third option . Just sayin make a negative into a positive because it’s only a sprain ?? Talk about using and abusing a guy he only has a sprain , re do his dam contract. It is just a sprain ??

    Okay it is what it is for Dotson, but he may be valuable still as a back up RT and LT for a few more years at a reasonable price. His carreer with the Bucs may not be over. Go Bucs!

    I personally like Big Dot. I hope he gets well soon and can resume his career. Regardless of how some fans feel about his worth, he’s better than a lot of the people we got imitating NFL O-Linemen and you can’t convince me otherwise because I’ve got tape. He’s no pro bowler, but he’s been worth every peanut the Bucs have paid him and he’s been paid peanuts!
