The season is over, and the bill is due. After rearranging and reworking deals to bring the band back together for one more run, the Buccaneers' furious comeback attempt against the Rams ended up falling just short. We expect Tom Brady to come back for another year, but the question is, who's with him?  In descending order of snaps, Alex Cappa, Ryan Jensen, Chris Godwin, Jordan Whitehead, Ndamukong Suh, Carlton Davis, Rob Gronkowski, Leonard Fournette and Jason Pierre-Paul are all pending free agents, and it seems very unlikely Tampa can bring all of them back.  They may want to focus on areas other than the offensive line and secondary, as those seem decently deep in this year's draft class. --  Bryan Knowles
