Bucs Have No Interest in Inking Former Jets DE Gholston

Pewter Report says today that the Bucs have no interest in inking now former Jets DE Vernon Gholston.

The Buccaneers have had some success with reclamation projects in the past, getting useful, productive seasons out of the likes of former nose tackle Chris Hovan, ex-Buccaneers cornerback Philip Buchanon, former wide receiver Antonio Bryant and ex-Buccaneers tight end Jerramy Stevens before parting ways with those players over age, free agency, injury and arrests, respectively. Hovan, Buchanon and Stevens were former first-round picks, while Bryant was a ex-second-rounder.

So a team with pass rushing needs like the Bucs has nothing to lose by taking a chance on 24-year old defensive end Vernon Gholston, a former first-round draft pick of the New York Jets, right? Not quite. According to sources at One Buccaneer Place, Tampa Bay has no interest in signing Gholston, who was released last week, or even bringing him in for a workout given the bad tape he has put out there since he was the eighth overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft.
