MLB Ruud Sitting Out Buccaneers OTA’s

Bucs MLB Barrett Ruud, has been sitting out recent OTA’s. Here’s the St.Petersburg Times‘ article on what’s going on with a big player on the Bucs D.

Middle linebacker Barrett Ruud, the centerpiece of a young Bucs defense in the midst of an overhaul, is key to the unit’s success in 2009. But Ruud did not participate in either of the voluntary workouts this week, the first of 14 such practices this offseason, even as he spoke Wednesday during a radio interview about taking ownership of coordinator Jim Bates’ new scheme. Given his contract status, he is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and because talks aimed at an extension are in their infancy, the reason for his nonparticipation is the subject of much speculation.
