I have been waiting, and waiting for the Buccaneers to make a move, and today was the day. Finally the Buccaneers bring in a free agent that signs and will have a huge impact right of the start.
Guard Toniu Fonoti visited with The Buccaneers today (Friday) and had a deal done before the day was over. He is considered one of the largest players in the league at well over 350 pounds, Fonoti was a Sports Illustrated first-team all-pro selection in 2004.
Fonoti is considered a powerful run-blocker which is great news for Cadillac Williams. This guy has been opening holes for Pro Bowl running back LaDainian Tomlinson, and we all know how good Tomlinson is, specially if you play fantasy football.
Fonoti is listed at 6-4 and 350 pounds, Fonoti entered the league as a second-round draft choice in 2002, taking 39th overall.
I look for last years rookie left guard Dan Buenning to remain a starter and Toniu Fonoti to secure the right guard spot.
Meanwhile, the Bucs continue to negotiate with Tom Mills, who is the agent for New England free agent tackle Tom Ashworth. If we could sign Ashworth, I think our 23rd pick in the 2006 might go wide receiver. ESPN is reporting that Sinorice Moss might just fall into the Bucs hands, which I find hard to believe, but would love.
