Buccaneers LB Barrett Ruud Supports Donald Penn

Barrett Ruud and Donald Penn were two of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' six restricted free agents this off-season, both tendered at the "First- and Third-Round" level.

While Ruud has signed his non-guaranteed, one-year, $3.268 million dollar tender, Penn has not signed his (which is worth $100K less due to having one fewer accrued season), and is not expected to attend the start of training camp.

Though they've taken different approaches to their contractual situations, Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times reports that Ruud has Penn's back.

"It's all individual," Ruud said. "I fully support Donald. Hopefully things get worked out."

With Demar Dotson and Xavier Fulton the top two left tackles in training camp, you can be Josh Freeman hopes so, too.
