After ranking left tackle Doug Free as a top-12 free agent in this class, we said that he would be very expensive for the Cowboys to keep.
The Bucs are helping to make sure that’s true.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Bucs and Cowboys are in a “dogfight” for Free. In Tampa, Free would presumably play right tackle. (They have Donald Penn on the left side.)
“Could get REALLY expensive,” Cole writes.
In other offensive line news, Cole writes that Tyson Clabo is “close” to returning to Atlanta. The Bengals and Seahawks are reportedly both bidding for guard Robert Gallery.
