Oe of the best defensive leaders around. While he is a liabilty in Pass coverage, Trotter could be a good asset to TB.

Trotter is a great player in this league don't get me wrong or at least he was.

As a LB at the professional level such as Trotter, you have many aspects of the game that come into factor when your number is called. It all starts with being played in the appropriate scheme or defensive system.

In this case, I'm going to have to agree with Sickness... He is by no means necessary for the Tampa Bay defense.

Well I am going to make a decision if it was a wrong system later in the season, but I am just happy that Trotter is coming back and find a home to play and contribute in the season. Good luck to him.

Trotter does seem like a bad fit for the Tampa 2, but who do the Bucs currently have as their MLB? Maybe Trotter is better than him...

That's the first thing I thought of too when I read this. To be a good LB in Tampa, you gotta be able to play coverage...and Trotter just can't do that anymore.

I think it is very questionable and I don't see how he will see the field much in the
Tampa 2.

I don't get this pick up other than possibly adding a locker room leader to replace Rice. Though after looking at this past off season I have to say that if Tampa doesn't work out for Gruden he'd probably be a great fit for the Redskins once Gibbs leaves.

Not really.

Brooks is good but aging, Trotter is broke and cant cover and June is overrated.

That LB corps needs a serious overhaul.

I wouldn't say they need a serious overhaul but they do need some youth. Atleast they have some rookies that can play linebacker.

That's exactly it. He's expected to back up and mentor Barrett Ruud, who is a first year starter. I still don't understand the move.
