Let's go over this again, because I'm slow. How on earth do the Bucs have less cap space than anyone in the NFL except the Patriots?

To remind you, according to overthecap.com, they have less cap space than the Rams, who went to the Super Bowl. They have less cap space than New Orleans, which won 13 games. They have less cap space than Kansas City and Dallas and Philadelphia.

Heck, if Jerry Lewis was still around, he'd start a telethon.

-- I don't know about you, but I feel terrible for disrespecting C.J. Anderson so badly. Normally, I write sonnets dedicated to unemployed running backs who think more of themselves than the league does.

-- Now that the Rams have Blake Bortles, they're all right.

-- So let's get this straight. In the end, Colin Kaepernick's salary was less than Ryan Griffin's check. But Kaepernick gets to fish for quarters at ever pay phone he passes.

-- After eating at the Bonefish Grill, I know fish prices are high. Trout, evidently, is the highest. Just ask Mike.

-- Excited yet? In their grades, CBSsports.com says the Bucs were 22nd in the NFL in free agency. Shame there are only 32 teams, huh

-- I wonder what Gerald McCoy thinks about LeBron James missing the playoffs?

-- Former Cowboys' receiver Dez Bryant says he'd be a steal where he goes. Well, that would be two thefts. The first is Bryant stealing a paycheck.

-- I saw where Robert Kraft says he has "an extraordinary respect for women." Which explains the large tip, I suspect.

-- Serious questions: What do you think of Ben Roethlisberger now as opposed to before the grenades launched by Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell? Were those the rambling accusations of malcontents, or is Big Ben really a Big Pain?

-- Pacman Jones made $18.6 million in his career, which is like winning the lottery three times. Now it seems he's headed to jail after being caught cheating. Sheesh.

-- If they were to film a reboot of The Caine Mutiny, wouldn't Tom Izzo be a great Captain Queeg?

-- What's a Wofford? It's the place Fletcher Magee comes from. Magee was 0-for-12 from three-point land Saturday. Just asking: If you're 0-for-11, why try another one?
