Bucs Ready to Ink Bryant and Ruud Long Term?

Pro Football Weekly hears that next up for Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik, who is looking to take advantage of the team’s favorable cap situation by locking up Tampa Bay’s key players for the long term, could be hammering out a new contract for WR Antonio Bryant and MLB Barrett Ruud.

After initially expressing his frustration about receiving the Bucs’ franchise tag, Bryant lowered his tone and is participating in Tampa’s offseason program, but a new deal could come his way in the next few months, according to sources. The Bucs could hold off on serious negotiations with Ruud since he won’t become an unrestricted free agent until 2012 if no new Collective Bargaining Agreement is agreed to before next year.
