Donald Penn could miss minicamp next month

Bucs don't seem interested in paying him Brad Biggs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will pick up activity next week with voluntary workouts and right now left tackle Donald Penn is not expected to be among those volunteering.

Penn is expected to sit out the rest of the acitivities this month and could also pass on the mandatory veteran minicamp next month, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. That camp is mandatory only to players under contract, and Penn is the lone remaining unsigned restricted free agent for the team.

Penn, like most of the other RFAs, is angling for a longterm extension, the kind of deal the Bucs have been hesitant to hand out. He’s a solid building block for the future but this is a situation that could play out into July as the Bucs don’t look like they’re ready to give him the pay day he is seeking.

If the young cogs they added on offense start clicking and it turns into a machine, a lot of people will hold out at the same time. Better to stay ahead of that for the moment, unless you plan on selling?

If Penn had stayed away from the fried chicken & not ballooned up the past couple seasons, he might already have gotten his new deal. Donald has gotten himself into better shape, but once he gets that long-term deal, what will be his incentive in November to push away from the table and maybe run some laps?? I agree with the Bucs' "wait & see" stance.

Popp has been the GM of the Alouettes for the last 15 seasons and his teams have reached 14 division championships and nine Grey Cups. He’s only one the championship three times, but hey, he sure knows how to get there.

and control his rights. Lutui, like most restricted free agents, is trolling for a longterm contract. That’s not going to come from the Cardinals, but returning to them is about the only choice he has.
