Q: There are two players that are free agents that could come into Tampa and help our team make a playoff push. Why not go out and sign former Chiefs' CB Stanford Routt? I would have rather had him covering Falcons' receiver Roddy White than Danny Gorrer. What about former Falcons' defensive end Ray Edwards to come in and help our horrible pass rush? Those are two quality players the Bucs should at least work out.

— Andrew Athans, Arnold, Md.

A: Routt has been out there for a couple of weeks now and no one has touched him. There must be something we don't know about him that is causing everyone to lay off. As for Edwards, he's a player the Bucs had some interest in during free agency last year. He put a rather high price tag on himself, but other than that I don't see why he can't help.

— Roy Cummings
