RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Shelton Quarles.
Quarles finally took the big step. He converted from strong side to the middle for Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl run in 2002 and since then has hovered right at the edge of fantasy relevance. He’s not reliable to make more than two or three combined picks and sacks, so his slightly below average tackle numbers had left him on the outside looking in. Until 2005, that is. Along came Chris Hovan to play tackle alongside Anthony McFarland, and Quarles shot up to 99 solos despite a previous career high of 74. The loss of Warren Sapp and some injury troubles clearly hurt Quarles before, but he’s in position to excel again. He’s as fundamental as they come, not taking bad chances and wrapping up well. A small guy, he really does need those big tackles in front of him. He’s got the same set-up for success heading into 2006.
He's a Pro Bowl quality linebacker, equally adept both in pass coverage and as a run stopper.
He'll be a starting linebacker for the Bucs again in 2004.
Others on the Bucs D get ink, but Quarles is one of the very best in the league at his position, and he's an integral part of the Bucs defense. Two INTs (one for a TD) and one sack in 2003, and second on the team in tackles (113).
