Tampa Bay Loves to Pick Up and Use the Pats Trash

Pro Football Weekly makes an interesting note today about how the Bucs seem to like to pick up players that the Pats cut – and some actually work out in Tampa.

The Patriots are known for taking other team’s trash and making it their treasure. Well, the Buccaneers and GM Mark Dominik plucked a couple players off the Patriots’ cutting room floor who have provided a nice impact in Tampa Bay. Recently, QB Josh Freeman talked to the Tampa Tribune about LB Tyrone McKenzie’s emergence as a leader during player-organized workouts. The Patriots drafted McKenzie in the third round of the 2009 draft and released him from the practice squad last November. New England’s sixth-round pick in 2010, C Ted Larsen, did not make the team’s 53-man roster. The Bucs picked him up and the rookie went on to start 11 games for Tampa Bay.
