  Buccaneers | Mike Evans named starter    Mon Aug 18, 10:21 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was named a starter, alongside WRs Vincent Jackson and Chris Owusu, by head coach Lovie Smith. Owusu will start in the slot.

Footballguys view: Absolutely zero surprise here. Evans was selected in the first round to be a starter, and he has the natural ability to be one of the best receivers in the game today. It will be exciting to watch him start opposite Vincent Jackson on Sundays.

  Buccaneers | Timothy Wright struggling    Sun Aug 17, 10:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright has been struggling with his catching and blocking during practice, according to head coach Lovie Smith. 'He's dropped some balls. If you watched practice, he's dropped balls. But he's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight-end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside. Once you're that H-back and you don't block, now they say you're just another receiver and teams start going nickel. If they do that at least you have to be a good pass catcher. Tim's a good player. He just hasn't played as well as he needs to lately,' Smith said. Wright may have to compete with TE Luke Stocker for a roster spot if he does not improve his play.

Footballguys view: Wright had some sleeper promise as a slot receiver who could masquerade as a tight end in fantasy leagues, but his star is dimming at the moment. Rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins could get a decent role as soon as he is ready if Wright continues to have lapses.

  Buccaneers | Mike James doubtful to play Saturday    Sun Aug 17, 03:51 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James (shoulder) is unlikely to play in the team's next preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: If this is a multi-week injury, Bobby Rainey will get on the field a decent amount early this year. Third-round pick Charles Sims is already out 12-14 weeks, so Rainey is the last man standing behind Doug Martin at the moment.

  Buccaneers | Five leave preseason game    Sat Aug 16, 11:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Brandon Magee (ankle), DE William Gholston (shoulder), CB Rashaan Melvin (ankle), RB Mike James (shoulder) and SS Major Wright (back) left the team's preseason game with injuries Saturday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Charles Sims is out for 12-14 weeks, so the Bucs embarrassment of riches at backup running back could turn into embarrassingly little depth in a very short time. Bobby Rainey is becoming a more important player by the day, although this could end up being minor for James when the dust settles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is starting in place of WR Chris Owusu in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: It's only a matter of time. Evans has phenomenal potential in the Bucs offense because of his size, wingspan and ability to win at the point of the catch.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims could be option for short-term IR    Sat Aug 16, 12:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is a candidate for the Active/Reserve/Injured list, which would keep him out until the middle of the season. The team hopes Sims will be about to play in their ninth game of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Without Sims in the lineup behind Doug Martin, we'll see guys like Mike James and Bobby Rainey get a larger opportunity.

  Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey and Mike James likely to compete for backup job    Fri Aug 15, 04:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey and RB Mike James are likely to compete for the back up running back job behind Doug Martin. RB Jeff Demps may also be in the mix as a situational player.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on both guys in the preseason here. Both James and Rainey looked good in limited duty last year. James got banged up after Doug Martin went down, which opened the door for Rainey. The former Western Kentucky back looked good against bad defenses but struggled against better teams.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) will undergo ankle surgery and is expected to miss 12 to 14 weeks.

Footballguys view: Ouch. This is a kick to the midsection of dynasty owners who were excited about Sims' upside. Without the rookie behind Doug Martin, the team will turn to guys like Mike James and Bobby Rainey.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers FS Dashon Goldson has been asked by the team to lower his target when making tackles. 'We've had a lot of conversations,' head coach Lovie Smith said. 'We're not asking him to stop doing anything. Really, it's pretty simple. We talk about a physical player, we want him to remain that. Just lower the target a little bit. It's kind of as simple as that.'

San Francisco 49ers OG Alex Boone is drawing trade interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: The Bucs guard play looks to be a weak spot with Carl Nicks gone. This could help Doug Martin, who might be running being a woeful line this year as it stands right now.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans lining up inside    Mon Aug 11, 11:07 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans frequently lined up in the slot or between the slot receiver and the outside wideout in trips formation in practice Sunday, Aug. 10. Head coach Lovie Smith said that could become more of a common position for Evans, who spent most of his college time lining up outside the numbers.

Footballguys view: Evans has the versatility to be moved around the formation. He's a huge target with a large wingspan, leaping ability and strong hands. We're excited to see the ways Evans will be used in the Jeff Tedford offense in Tampa. He hasn't generated the ADP momentum of some of his rookie WR peers, so he could be a value as a rookie who will be handed a starting spot with a great #1 on the other side.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Robert Herron's (shoulder) injury suffered Friday, Aug. 8, against the Jacksonville Jaguars does not appear to be serious, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: Herron is trying to make his way onto the final roster after the Bucs added him in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft. We like Herron's speed and ability to release off the line of scrimmage in multiple different ways.

  Buccaneers | Josh McCown ready for preseason    Thu Aug 7, 05:06 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown is ready to line up against another defense when the Buccaneers face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars Friday, Aug. 8. McCown added that he's excited to play in his first game with Tampa Bay and hopes the team can execute.

Footballguys view: We're dubious that McCown is going to replicate what he did in Chicago with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but we'll get our first solid look Friday--although one can argue the Jaguars aren't exactly a hard test. We'd stay away from McCown for the most part, unless you're in a two-quarterback starting league and need a backup. We've got him as a QB3 as of this date and don't expect the needle to move much.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon praised by head coach    Thu Aug 7, 01:55 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon, who will be the primary backup to QB Josh McCown, has been praised for his professionalism by head coach Lovie Smith. 'You want to see how guys respond and how they act. You want to be a pro about it - a real pro about it,' Smith said Wednesday, Aug. 6. 'A professional, that's what Mike has been. He's done everything we've asked him to do. He wants to be a starter in the league - someday he will.'

Footballguys view: Everyone is pretty concerned with the QB situation in Tampa Bay. Yes, McCown did a good job last season for the Chicago Bears, but a lot of that may have been due to head coach Marc Trestman. Lovie Smith isn't known for great offenses and Jeff Tedford, while good with quarterbacks, isn't a proven commodity. How this shakes out will impact everyone on the offense from Vincent Jackson to rookie Mike Evans to Doug Martin. Glennon knows his shot will come and he's biding his time, being a good employee. That being said, Glennon is barely worth a QB4 or QB5 spot while McCown is tracking as a QB3 at best. In other words, nobody here is worth much more than a hail mary throw into quadruple coverage.
