Bucs takes hometown discount
By Stephen F. Holder
Published February 28, 2006
Citing a desire to remain in Tampa Bay's defensive system and to reward the team's loyalty, cornerback Juran Bolden re-signed with the Bucs on Monday.
Bolden, 31, said he signed a five-year contract for less money than he sought, but his decision gives him continuity, something he has never had while playing for six teams in eight seasons.
"At my age, you get tired of switching from team to team," the Tampa native said. "I don't even remember how many teams I've been on. I like what we're doing in Tampa. ... And I love coach (Jon) Gruden. He showed me a lot of love, and one thing about me is when people show me loyalty, I'm loyal to them."
Bolden is likely to remain the team's nickel back, playing mostly in five-defensive back sets. He would be the first cornerback off the bench in the event of an injury to Ronde Barber or Brian Kelly.
Last season, Bolden had a career-best 42 tackles and played in all 16 games, also a career high. He finished with two interceptions and nine pass deflections, including one that resulted in Will Allen's game-sealing interception at Green Bay.
Bolden is regarded as a big, physical playmaker, but he also is a gambler who can give up a big play. He thinks he can take steps forward after a year in the system. "I just have to sharpen up on some of my technique issues," he said.
TEST SCORE DISPUTED: Texans general manager Charley Casserly disputed reports that Vince Young got a poor score on the Wonderlic test.
Young reportedly got a six on the 50-question test, which grades intelligence and speed of thought. If that were the case, the Texas quarterback would have gotten one of the worst scores in history.
"I've been told that's inaccurate by a source good enough for me to stand up here to quote it," Casserly said. "Otherwise, I wouldn't get up here and say it."
The NFL said scores don't come out until a week after the scouting combine, held in Indianapolis over the weekend.
MOULDS REBUFFS BILLS: Eric Moulds rejected the Bills' offer for restructuring his hefty contract, a decision that could lead the team to release its star receiver this week. The 10-year veteran is scheduled to count $10.85-million against the salary cap.
