Another Veteran Purge in 2010?

Will they do it again?  Will the Buccaneers 2010 offseason have another veteran purge like during the 2009 offseason? 

Free Agency begins March 5th, 2010, and while some of the players on this list are still under contract, a number of them could be missing by the time training camp rolls around next fall.  And it would be with good reason:  Tampa Bay purposely moved veterans out of the way to find out exactly what they had on the younger end of the roster.  Now that all has been revealed it's down to who can help the team next year.

Will there be a purge like 2009?  No.  But with 10 draft picks looming at least some of these men have played their last game as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

The players with seven or more NFL seasons from the 2009 Buccaneers roster are:
Ronde Barber (13)
Josh Bidwell (10)
Chris Hovan (10)
John Gilmore (8)
Jermaine Phillips (8)
Ryan Sims (8)
Jerramy Stevens (8)
Antonio Bryant (7)
Torrie Cox (7)
Angelo Crowell (7)
Jeff Faine (7)
Byron Leftwich (7)
Jimmy Wilkerson (7)
