I DID miss this post, XBay... Don't know why, but better answering now than never, right?
Well, latest talk was that they're interested in adding a QB, and considering what's left in free agency, Josh Freeman's name has come up more than a bit. Also, it should be noted that Raheem was the D-Coordinator of Kansas State a few years back (in Freeman's first season, if I'm not wrong), so he has a more than good understanding of Freeman's skills.
Of course, that changes a lot now that Cutler is officially available, although I don't think the Bucs have the ammo to trade for him. They'd have to trade this year's first rounder and a few future rounds to get him, which would leave the Bucs without a pick til the third round.
I think the Browns have the best chance to trade for Cutler, if you ask me, being able to trade Quinn or Derek Anderson, Shaun Rogers and a pick to Denver. If they want him, I'm sure Cutler will be a Brown (unless the Broncos want to trade him to the NFC).
But back to topic, if it's not a QB, we have needs at DT, DE, CB and WR, probably in that order, so I wouldn't be surprised if they go with one of those positions instead of Freeman, as Morris will be in win-now mode.
