Bucs inquire about Moore

After losing starting running back Carnell "Cadillac" Williams to a season-ending knee injury, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers inquired about Vikings third-string running back Mewelde Moore, according to a source close to the situation.

But the source said the Bucs refused the Vikings' request for a first-day draft pick (first, second or third round) in return. Not only has Moore been inactive for two games, he also is set to become a free-agent after this season.

Off to a surprising 3-1 start, the Buccaneers want to add another quality running back, and they identified Moore as a possible candidate.

This season, with starter Chester Taylor sidelined with a hip injury, Moore has carried the ball 10 times for 71 yards and caught six passes for 48 yards.

But Moore could be attractive to other teams needing to bolster their depth at running back because of his starting experience, his versatility, and his productivity. The only concern has been his durability.

Ask for a third, the Bucs will give a fourth. Vikes already have an extra third round pick from the Broncos. Keep stocking picks, Spielman has shown he knows what to do with them. Besides, Mew is going to be a free-agent and the Vikings are 1-3. Peterson, Rice, McCauley, Robinson, draft picks help.
