Well, Alstott does seem likely out of the picture, with an outrageous cap figure. I wouldn't be surprised if he restructured though, but if not, I could easily see the Bucs spending a fraction of what they save cutting him to give a 1-2 year deal to a guy like Anthony Thomas, just so they have a short-yardage RB.

Alstott has "team loyalty" written all over him at this point in his career. If he's not retiring, he's restructing and staying on the Buc's. I think the Buc's are so confident in Alstott, they let Pittman go, figuring they could use Alstott as a multi-faceted 3rd down RB. He can run for short yardage and catch passes like a solid pass catching FB.. Caddy can be used more extensively in the passing game now that he has a years worth of experience in the system.

Caddy seems to be in a similar situation to Tiki Barber going into last season. We all knew Jacobs would have a role at the goalline, but to what extent? I think the consensus is that Alstott will have a bigger role than most predicted of Jacobs, and in addition to that Caddy doesn't have a history of racking up 50 catches and 500 yards in receiving numbers.

We all know that Tiki was undervalued as a 2nd round pick last year, but I'm really less optimistic about Caddy now, versus how I was for Tiki in the preseason last year. Keep in mind that Tiki only had 9 rushing touchdowns last year, despite carrying the ball 350+ times and averaging well over 5.0ypc. Hard to predict Caddy breaking into the 10+ TD range based on what a similar RB(minus passing stats) in the best possible situation did last year.

I dont think Alstott will come back next year. If i was him i would be concerned with his health (neck injury) and his age. It seems that when Alsott is being talked about everyone looks at him as this great short yardage back that he was a few years ago. Alstott is not the same back. He has lost something and im not quite sure what but he doesnt have the same bone crushing style he had in years past. I really believe that Even if he does come back Caddy will still get some goaline carries.
