The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been throwing money around like crazy since free agency opened yesterday afternoon.They signed top free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson late last night for $55 million over five years. And this morning, they locked up the market’s best offensive lineman, Carl Nicks, for $47.5 million over five years.

They also signed cornerback Eric Wright, who is serviceable at least.

The Bucs were pretty abysmal last year. But they’re only two years removed from a 10-6 season, and we all know how quickly fortunes can change in the modern NFL.

Then again splashing the cash in free agency didn’t help the Eagles last year.
