  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson won't take cut?    Fri Feb 27, 11:46 PM

  Buccaneers | TB eyeing Jameis Winston at No. 1?    Tue Feb 24, 07:51 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston could be top draft priority for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport said he hasn't talked to a single person who doesn't think Tampa Bay will take Winston with the first draft pick.

Footballguys view: It's like the worst kept secret in the league. The Buccaneers seemed to have locked onto Winston as their choice. They need a franchise quarterback, and Winston is arguably the best in his draft class. The Florida State prospect has a skill set similar to that of Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers), but off-field concerns create question marks about his value in the draft.

  Buccaneers | Da'Quan Bowers unlikely to stay    Mon Feb 23, 04:28 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent DE Da'Quan Bowers has been a bust since being drafted in 2011, and he was in danger of being cut last summer. The current regime in Tampa has nothing invested in his future.

Footballguys view: Bowers just can't stay healthy. It's a problem that has plagued him ever since he came into the league.

  Buccaneers | Mason Foster not in team's plans?    Mon Feb 23, 04:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent LB Mason Foster is not expected to be re-signed by the team, because his questionable coverage skills aren't a good fit for head coach Lovie Smith's Cover 2 scheme on defense.

Footballguys view: It might be time for Foster to move on. Foster seems to be a much better fit with the Atlanta Falcons.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wants to play for TB    Fri Feb 20, 06:04 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston said he would like to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and believes he has the trust of head coach Lovie Smith. 'I think it would be a privilege to play in Tampa, period, with the Florida State fan base and everything I have been involved with in the state of Florida. Coach Smith speaking highly of me, that already lets me know I'm a part of their program,' Winston said. 'I already have a trust factor in with him, and now all I have to do is accept his trust and gain his trust to help him out.'

Footballguys view: There's a good chance he'll get his wish of course, as he has been linked to the Bucs for a long time. They'll do their due diligence on his off-field issues, but they may have a head start on that given they are down in Tampa. Staying in Florida could be a mixed bag for Winston. On the one hand he will stay in a somewhat familiar environment and be close to friends and family. On the other hand he'll be close to temptations he has sometimes struggled with not succumbing to. Tampa needs a quarterback though because no matter what they say, Mike Glennon is not in their long term plans. Winston sounds like he is in the lead to be 'their guy.'

  Buccaneers | Bucs interested in Jameis Winston    Fri Feb 20, 04:52 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston is scheduled to meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: BREAKING: WATER IS WET. We did know this already. There is a possibility they will keep Mike Glennon and use him to back up Winston or they might trade him off. Either way, this comes as a shock to nobody. The Bucs have great weapons in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, so Winston could be very successful there, very quickly.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson will return to TB in 2015    Wed Feb 18, 04:12 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson will return in 2015, according to general manager Jason Licht. Licht said he will meet with Jackson's agent during the NFL Combine this week, probably to request to restructure Jackson's $9.77 million salary.

Footballguys view: The two sides can work something out here. Jackson is an important veteran to keep around while Mike Evans continues to learn and progress as a pro. The Bucs are likely going to have a rookie QB like Jameis Winston (Florida State) leading the way in 2015.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon a franchise QB?    Wed Feb 18, 01:20 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has what it takes to develop into the team's franchise quarterback, according to head coach Lovie Smith. 'Yeah, I think you can definitely say that Mike can be the quarterback that can play at a high level in this league,' Smith said when asked if Glennon can be a franchise quarterback. 'And I mean, we only have one quarterback on our roster. If you look at the comments I've made about him, yes, I think he can be that guy.' General manager Jason Licht also expressed confidence in Glennon.

Footballguys view: We like Glennon, but he's not a franchise quarterback on the level of some of the best in the game. He's a good starter with limited upside. If he was a franchise quarterback, then Tampa would not be interested in selecting a QB with the number one overall pick.

  Buccaneers | Lovie Smith likes Jameis Winston    Wed Feb 18, 12:18 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston has a fan in Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith, and Smith said he wouldn't hesitate to draft him at No. 1 overall based on what he knows at the moment. Smith isn't worried about an allegation of sexual assault surrounding Winston.

Footballguys view: Smith also made it clear that the Bucs are considering Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with their first pick, too. Smith will meet with both quarterbacks for the first time this weekend at the NFL Scouting Combine, and the team will also hold private workouts with both of them. We have a feeling the Bucs are going to add Winston to be their franchise quarterback if he checks out off the field.

  Buccaneers | Leaning towards using top pick    Wed Feb 18, 11:21 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leaning towards using the top pick in the NFL Draft this year, according to general manager Jason Licht. Licht said the team is open to trading the pick as well.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston could be top pick for TB    Mon Feb 16, 07:03 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston could be selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, because he fits what the team wants to do on offense more than Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, in the opinion of NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock.

Footballguys view: Winston starred at Florida State for two years, and the Bucs need a true franchise quarterback. He could certainly fit the bill and be an immediate starter. If selected, Winston would compete with Mike Glennon for the top spot on the Bucs depth chart. On the field, Winston has a skill set reminiscent of Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers). Off the field, Winston has some question marks after several incidents when he was in college.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon to open 2015 as starter?    Fri Feb 13, 10:11 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon will likely open the 2015 season as the starter until whichever quarterback the team drafts with the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft is ready to take over, according to former Indianapolis Colts general manager Bill Polian.

Footballguys view: That's nice in theory, but Glennon could be on the trade block. The Bucs let Josh McCown go, and he might be the best QB on the free agent market. A team who wants a different option may approach the Bucs with a trade offer for Glennon. The Bucs are likely to select QB Jameis Winston (Florida State) with the number one overall pick.

  Buccaneers | Lovie Smith favors Jameis Winston    Thu Feb 12, 02:35 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith is thought to prefer Florida State QB Jameis Winston over Oregon QB Marcus Mariota for the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: This is the buzz we picked up earlier this year. Winston is a good pocket passer, and he does have the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet. Think of Winston in the same way you do Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers). Off-field problems have plagued Winston in college, and he will have to be checked out by NFL teams closely.

  Buccaneers | Josh McCown released    Wed Feb 11, 05:39 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown was released Wednesday, Feb. 11.

Footballguys view: This move makes Mike Glennon the top QB on the Bucs roster right now. However, Glennon could be on the trade block and the team is likely to select a QB (Jameis Winston) with the number-one overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. McCown will draw a little interest on the open market. Perhaps he could go back to Chicago where he was a successful backup behind Jay Cutler. He could also go to Baltimore where he would be reunited with Ravens OC (and former Bears head coach) Marc Trestman.

  NFL | DT Leonard Williams the most dominant player in the draft?    Wed Feb 4, 08:34 PM

Former scout and current NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes USC defensive tackle Leonard Williams could be the most dominant player in the NFL draft. "Everything you want -- the size, the length, the explosiveness, the versatility. You can play him all over the line on defense. He reminds me a lot of Richard Seymour. That's pretty good company to keep." Jeremiah said.

Footballguys view: We agree with Jeremiah here. Williams is a special player that the Buccaneers should be considering with the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. At 6'5" 298 pounds, Williams can dominate at the point of attack. He'll regularly get interior pressure on opposing quarterbacks, and he has a quick closing burst to the football.

  NFL | Jameis Winston more issues than Johnny Manziel?    Wed Feb 4, 07:30 PM

Greg Gabriel, from NationalFootballPost.com, believes that Florida State QB Jameis Winston has more issues off the field than Cleveland Browns 2014 first-round pick Johnny Manziel did when he came out of Texas A&M. The former director of college scouting for the Chicago Bears is warning teams to stay away.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers have the number one overall pick, and they are considering Winston with that pick. He's talented on the field, and Winston has a skill set that is reminiscent of Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers). We'll see Winston on his best behavior as he goes through the pre-draft process. Only time will tell if he's going to stay out of trouble (after multiple infractions in college) and play up to his potential as a pro.

  Buccaneers | Sights set on QB Marcus Mariota?    Thu Jan 29, 08:19 PM

According to Adam Schefter, from ESPN, there's a real sense that Tampa Bay has its sights set on Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota with the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: Mariota or Jameis Winston (Florida State) should be the number one pick in the draft. Winston is the more pro-ready passer, and there's some Ben Roethlisberger to his game. Mariota has a game similar to that of Alex Smith (Chiefs), a former number one pick himself. Like Smith, Mariota played in a spread system in college and made easier throws to mostly wide open receivers. Mariota may not throw at the Scouting Combine in February due to a shoulder injury he suffered in the National Championship Game.

  Buccaneers | Marc Trestman interviewed    Mon Jan 5, 07:21 PM

Former Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman interviewed for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' open offensive coordinator position Monday, Jan. 5, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Trestman has a bright mind for offensive football, and he can develop most any quarterback not named Jay Cutler. He'll be able to boost any offense he runs in 2015.

  Buccaneers | Seth Lobato signs Futures deal    Thu Jan 1, 01:44 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed QB Seth Lobato to a Reserve/futures contract for 2015.

Footballguys view: Lobato is the athletic Northern Colorado quarterback who has spent some time with the Miami Dolphins after going undrafted in 2014. The Broncos worked him out in December of 2014 but chose not to sign him. The 6'6" 230 pound quarterback has a rocket arm and can scramble. However, his 53 percent accuracy in college needs to be cleaned up if he's going to do anything as a pro. Fantasy owners in super super deep dynasty leagues need a heads up here.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has had less than 50 receiving yards in each of his last five games, but he has been targeted 46 times over the same stretch.

Footballguys view: Evans is a huge part of the passing game, and defenses know that. They have adjusted coverage to keep Evans bottled up as much as possible. The Buccaneers should look at different ways to get Evans more room to run.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed DE Lawrence Sidbury (Colts) Wednesday, Dec. 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. In a corresponding move, the team released CB Crezdon Butler.

Footballguys view: Sidbury was an interesting prospect years ago when he came out of Richmond. His devastating spin move in college has not worked so well as a pro. Sidbury has failed to further develop his raw skill set, and that's why he's bounced around to several different teams.
