Buccaneers LT Donald Penn Entering A Make-Or-Break Season?

Donald Penn has since refuted the previous report regarding him failing to pass weight clauses included in his contract.




According to Mark Cook of the Pewter Report, Buccaneers LT Donald Penn could be headed for a make-or-break year.

Cook mentions that Penn has failed to meet most of the weight clauses included in the six-year, $41.7 million contract he received from Tampa Bay back in 2010.

Penn, 30, has base salaries of $5 million in 2013 and another $6.4 million coming his way over the next two seasons. Given that his conditioning is a bit of a concern, a down season could force the team to reconsider whether or not he’s worth keeping at $6.4 million price tag, especially since this is a non-guaranteed figure.

It’s worth noting that the Buccaneers don’t have an obvious replacement on their roster and Penn has been a pretty solid blindside protector in recent years. The Bucs didn’t draft any developmental prospects last month, so they could always approach him regarding a restructured following the season.
