Well, here's a shocker. Mel Kiper is being let go by ESPN because they couldn't agree on language in his contract. I assume that Sporting News, SI.com, et al. now go after him, but isn't a large part of Kiper's value his being on set during the draft broadcast?
The Bucs' rookie made a lot of big plays last year, but he'll need to cut down on turnovers and sloppy throws to live up to his draft status.
