The Greatest Buccaneer to Wear the uniform May Be Forced to Retire.

Well as March 3rd approaches fast, it looks as if the "Greatest Player to Ever Wear a Buccaneer Uniform May Be Forced to Retire." I have learned that the Buccaneer's GM did make Mike Alstott and his agent an offer to return this year, but the offer was very small and Mike was asking for his last years salary of $1.5 million.

The Bucs are as much as $19 million over the cap, so that may not be practical.
As I have said all along Mike Alstott has been my favorite player for many years. Before him I was a huge Errict Rhett fan. It will be hard not to see number 40 in the game, but his ties with the Tampa Bay area will remain. If he does call it quits, Pewter Pirates will host a tribute to this great beloved Buccaneer.

The only good news for me with this retirement come my new favorite Buccaneer Cadillac Williams, who is my star running back on my fantasy football team. If Alstott hangs up his cleats, Carnell Williams' fantasy value increases because now goal line duties will be up for grabs. You can check out my Fantasy Football Blog at

Is there a chance he will go to another team?

No, he said he will not relocate his family. He is our Zack Thomas.

If we were to play in Miami he could always sort of commute.

I'd take him in a heart beat!
