Bucs on the Lookout for a Running Back

First it was Mike Alstott, then Cadillac Williams and now Michael Pittman.  The Buccaneers are decimated at the running back position and now the search begins.  Head coach Jon Gruden says Earnest Graham will be the feature back for the moment with rookie Ken Darby backing him up.  The team is having trade discussions with several clubs, including the Minnesota Vikings regarding Mewelde Moore and possibly Chester Taylor.  The name of Ricky Williams has also surfaced although he would need to be reinstated by the league first.  At one point yesterday, Gruden joked about talking ex-Giants running back Tiki Barber out of retirement.  The twin brother of Bucs cornerback Ronde Barber is likely to stay put in the broadcasting world.
