Pittman could face sanctions from league



Tampa Bay starting tailback Michael Pittman, one of the stars of the Bucs' victory in Super Bowl XXXVII five months ago, could face league sanctions after being arrested in suburban Phoenix on Saturday and charged with six felony counts.

Pittman, 27, was charged with three counts each of aggravated assault and of reckless endangerment in an incident in which he allegedly rammed his Hummer into a vehicle being driven by his wife, Melissa. The couple's son, Mycah, and a babysitter were the passengers in Melissa's car.

A spokesman for the Phoenix police said the couple, believed to be estranged, apparently were arguing over the player's desire to have their two-year-old son accompany him for spring workouts in Tampa.

The wife of Buccaneers tailback Michael Pittman will not pursue charges stemming from an incident last month in which he allegedly rammed her car, but it might not be enough to keep him from facing jail time or possible league sanctions.

Attorney Ed Brennan confirmed Wednesday that Melissa Pittman informed prosecutors of her intentions and asked that they drop two felony counts of aggravated assault against her husband. It appears, however, that the Maricopa County (Ariz.) Attorney's Office will continue to pursue its case against Michael Pittman.

No matter the outcome of the two cases, Pittman faces scrutiny by the NFL according to the terms of its personal conduct policy. Pittman was suspended for the opener of the 2001 season because of the incidents earlier that year and there could be even stiffer sanctions this time around.

Tampa Bay has been busy adding depth to the offensive backfield. The team has signed former Raider Terry Kirby for one year, a deal that reunites the running back with head coach Jon Gruden, for whom Kirby played during two of his three seasons with Oakland. Though the 11-year veteran spent a good portion of last season on injured reserve after breaking his leg against San Diego in Week 7, he has recovered from the injury. His signing comes just three days after the Bucs inked running back Morgan Kane, who has had previous stops in Baltimore, Carolina, Jacksonville and NFL Europe. But the most recent addition is a big one. The team sent WR Marquise Walker, who was buried in the depth chart, to Arizona for RB Thomas Jones. Jones became expendable when the Cardinals signed Emmitt Smith, but can compete for the starter's job with the Bucs

TAMPA (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers rewarded Brad Johnson for leading the team to its first Super Bowl championship with a contract extension that includes a $6 million signing bonus and is worth $25 million over the next four seasons. The restructured deal provides the 34-year-old Pro Bowl quarterback with assurances that he fits into coach Jon Gruden's plans beyond 2003. It also provides general manager Rich McKay with additional salary cap room to possibly address the contract situations of defensive tackles Warren Sapp and Anthony McFarland, who can become free agents after next season.

German star Ralf Kleinmann is to make his NFL debut next season after agreeing terms with Super Bowl champions the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 32-year-old kicker returned to action for the 2003 NFLEL season after a two-year break, and celebrated his comeback by helping the Frankfurt Galaxy to the World Bowl.

The three-time World Bowl Champion currently ranks fourth on the NFL Europe All-time scoring list and added to his tally as he racked up 52 points on his return to the Galaxy this season.

Kleinmann was 10-14 on his field goal attempts and connected on 22 of 23 point-after kicks as they took the World Bowl crown.

Already owning the NFL's best defence, the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers used their first pick in Saturday's draft to close the second round by taking Louisville end Dewayne White.

The Bucs did not own a first-round pick, dealing it to the Oakland Raiders last off-season for the right to acquire Jon Gruden as their coach.

One of the nation's best defensive players in 2001, White saw his performance slip last season due to an ankle injury. But he still managed 60 tackles and 10 1/2 sacks.

The 6ft 2in, 273-pound White was the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year in 2001 with 86 tackles and 15 sacks.

In Tampa Bay, White joins a star-studded line that includes tackle Warren Sapp and end Simeon Rice. That unit was the Bucs' driving force to the Super Bowl last season.

What has happened to the Bucs as of late. Well Green Bay had some revenage on the Bucs. After what happen with Sapp's hit on Clifton, the Packers o-line didn't allow a sack the whole game breaking tampa's reconrd of 69 games with a sack.

Charles Lee had a key 53-yard touchdown reception and their defence played superbly in the final minutes as Tampa Bay Buccaneers kept their faint play-off hopes alive with a 19-13 triumph over the New York Giants.

Lee more than stepped in for Keyshawn Johnson less than a week after the club banished their disenchanted wide receiver.

Hrmm still not performing that good they need to step up a notch..

If they do make the playoff i bet that they will lose in the first round. But they are stuggling on the defensive side of the ball...and that used to be their strong point.

Well whats happened to Tampa.

It looks like their hopes of defending their Super Bowl title may have been terminated by rookie Byron Leftwich, Fred Taylor and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

John Lynch won't be back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season.Although the Bucs had not officially released the 32-year-old, Lynch said Thursday he was given permission to talk to other teams after general manager Bruce Allen turned down his request to restructure a contract that would have paid him $4.1 million in 2004 and $5 million in 2005.
