  Buccaneers | Bruce Arians to help Jameis Winston?    Thu Jan 17, 11:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will benefit from having Bruce Arians as his head coach, according to retired QB Carson Palmer. 'It's probably the best thing that could've happen to Jameis at this point in his career,' Palmer said. 'Getting a guy like B.A. to come in and clean up some things technically. And really installing what he does best and that's push the ball down the field.'

  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy done in Tampa Bay?    Wed Jan 16, 03:54 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy has a 'real chance' of being released this offseason, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.

Footballguys view: It would be a shame to see him move on but this is the nature of the NFL, especially at an advanced age and increased contract. McCoy was a first-round pick for the Bucs back in the 2010 NFL draft. He is due $13 million in 2019 and the Buccaneers are $16.5 million under the salary cap.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston just needs to relax and let his natural ability take over, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Talent is no issue,' Arians said. 'It's just becoming a little bit smarter.'

Footballguys view: Winston had the third-most (14) interceptions in the league during the 2018 season. That's a number Arians will work diligently to bring down in 2019. The combination of Arians and Winston has the potential to be a good one.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will be the focal point of the offense under new head coach Bruce Arians.

The veteran coach added that he has to put the right pieces around Winston. Arians is a noted 'quarterback whisperer' and has a lot of work to do in order to get the most from Winston.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay ends up trading for Bruce Arians    Tue Jan 8, 09:09 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was acquired along with a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a 2019 sixth round pick Tuesday, Jan. 8. The league initially told the Buccaneers no compensation was needed to hire Arians, but the Cardinals argued they still held Arians' contract rights following his retirement after the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: Arians retired before the 2018 season and that's why the Cardinals still owned his rights. The teams were able to find proper compensation quickly after the Cardinals initially didn't want anything for the veteran coach then changed their minds.

Footballguys view: We love B.A. and are thrilled that he's back in the league. He's going to 'let it rip' on offense with QB Jameis Winston. Arians will have to lessen his quarterback's turnovers but they should put the pedal to the metal offensively.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired head coach Dirk Koetter after the team's Week 17 game against the Atlanta Falcons, a source said Sunday, Dec. 30. The Bucs ended up 5-11 in the 2018 regular season.

Footballguys view: The Bucs appeared to be turning the corner two years ago and they've spent a lot of money to upgrade the team, without any better results. It's time for a change at head coach, although recent news makes it sound like they won't have a change at quarterback.

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate dealing with injury    Fri Dec 28, 10:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (undisclosed) has been dealing with an injury since the start of the season that has contributed to his dip in performance, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. 'There will probably be more information on that after the season is over,' Koetter said. 'But I think Cam, when he gets healthy again, will return to form very quickly.'

Footballguys view: Brate's stats have taken a dip from the strong numbers he posted in 2017. His yards per catch has dropped from 12.3 in 2017 to only 8.9 in 2018. Last season Brate finished as a top-10 fantasy tight end in standard-scoring leagues, while this season he's on track to finish as a low-end TE2. He is signed through the 2023 season but has a $7 million cap hit in 2018 with zero remaining in dead money.
