Barrett Ruud

7

(Above is a link to Yahoo's carrer stats for Barrett Ruud... just so all the stats are there to prove that I'm only slightly being a homer about his value.) It appears that Tampa Bay is going to pass on re-signing Ruud... and Kellen Winslow Jr and the rest of the team aren't happy about it... This kid (28) has been a VERY consistant performer for them and by all accounts a leader in the locker room. A former Blackshirt, Barrett is a smart player and a helluva tackler... He won't be flashy but that is EXACTLY the kind of player we need next to DJ. He would be a strong upgrade over Belcher and given the head scratching lack of interest in him I would bet we could land him for a very resonable price. Am I drinking too much Husker Kool Aid? Am I wrong on this guy? Let me know what you think....
