Well, the NFL trade deadline is long gone and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did nothing to help improve the team. I often wonder whether or not the Tampa Bay management will come to regret not making any trades this season, especially with many key players sidelined due to injury like safeties Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson and RBs Doug Martin and Jeff Demps. Come to think of it, the Bucs maybe could have addressed the wide receiver position and solidified the backup quarterback spot. The Buccaneers are now 0-8 and their playoff chances are all but a memory for this season. Tampa Bay should have picked up some free agents and fished in a few trades. From the looks of it right now, the Bucs are looking a 2014 first round draft pick dead in the face. This is a rebuilding season for the Buccaneers and they should have picked up some players that were on the market.
