  Buccaneers | Bucs not shopping Vincent Jackson    Mon Oct 20, 05:29 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson's name came up over the weekend in reports that the team was fielding phone calls from interested teams, but head coach Lovie Smith said Monday, Oct. 20, that the team isn't interested in trading their star receiver.

Footballguys view: The Jackson don't have many weapons on offense. They couldn't really afford to get rid of Jackson.

  Buccaneers | Josh McCown returns to practice    Mon Oct 20, 02:05 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) returned to practice Monday, Oct. 20, and was reportedly throwing well.

Footballguys view: By 'throwing well' they mean to his own team, right? McCown may be back, but it's Mike Glennon who has looked better as a starter for this team.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson on trade block?    Sun Oct 19, 12:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson has received trade interest from other teams, and the Buccaneers are open to anything even though they love Jackson.

Footballguys view: This sounds more like a "what if" than a real story about Jackson's future. The list of players that have garnered trade interest from other teams is probably very long, and most teams are open to anything in theory.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims to return soon?    Sat Oct 18, 02:56 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) could return to practice soon and is eligible to return after the team's game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Nov. 2. Sims underwent ankle surgery this offseason and is on the Reserve/Injured list with a designation to return.

Footballguys view: Tampa's run game has been a mess so Sims could get some play when he comes back. He's worth an addition in deeper leagues. We like his all-purpose skill set as Sims is effective as both a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

  Buccaneers | Isaiah Harris fired    Fri Oct 17, 06:46 AM

Updating a previous item, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired director of player development Isaiah Harris following his DUI arrest. According to a team statement from general manager Jason Licht: 'This type of incident, particularly for someone whose primary responsibilities are to mentor and develop our players off the field, cannot be tolerated. Due to the nature of his position and the expectations placed on our staff, we made the organizational decision to part ways with Isaiah.'

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans on the field    Wed Oct 15, 12:51 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. There was some concern that Evans re-injured his groin during drills Tuesday, Oct. 14.

Footballguys view: Good news for the rookie here. He came back from the minor groin injury a bit quicker than originally anticipated. The Bucs are on bye this week, but it looks like Evans should be good to go for Week 8.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson not capitalizing     Tue Oct 14, 05:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson is fifth among wide receivers in targets (60) but has converted just 25 of them into catches.

Footballguys view: He currently has a 43.1 percent reception per route run rate. That is well below the league average of 65.4 percent. With only one drop credited to Jackson, it shows that the Bucs QBs (mostly Mike Glennon) are off then throwing the ball at the big man.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have declared FS Dashon Goldson, CB Johnthan Banks, LB Jonathan Casillas, QB Josh McCown, OG Kadeem Edwards, OT Kevin Pamphile, DE Larry English inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: McCown is still out with a thumb injury, and it is very possible that he will find that he has lost his starting job to Josh McCown when he is ready to return.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans expected to play    Sun Oct 12, 11:14 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) is likely to play Sunday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Consider Evans a "what the heck flex" with a high ceiling and low floor in his earlier-than-anticipated return to the lineup from a groin injury.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson likely to go    Sun Oct 12, 11:11 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) is likely to play Sunday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Jackson has generally played well through injuries in the past. He could draw Jimmy Smith, a young corner on the rise, but Jackson is still worth a play as at least a WR3/Flex.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin expects big game soon    Sat Oct 11, 11:22 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin said he believes the team's running attack is close to having a breakout game. 'Yeah, there's been times where it's definitely been close,' Martin said. 'These guys work hard. They work their butts off in practice. Everyone [holds] each other accountable for this. We're going to get it going and I can't wait until it happens. [I'll] Just continue what I do - just run the ball hard, follow my keys and just keep going hard like I do.'

Footballguys view: If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. It hasn't happened yet and this team isn't exactly performing well on a week to week basis. Martin is a low-end RB2 or solid RB3 until he shows he can perform at the level you'd expected when you drafted him. Start him with lower expectations until then and then anything above that bar is icing on the cake.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Jonathan Casillas (hamstring) and FS Dashon Goldson (ankle) both did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and have been ruled out for the team's Week 6 game. QB Josh McCown (thumb) did not participate in practice and is doubtful. CB Johnthan Banks (neck), C Evan Dietrich-Smith (illness) and DE Larry English (hamstring) all were limited in practice and are questionable. LB Mason Foster (shoulder) fully practiced and is probable.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson questionable    Fri Oct 10, 03:57 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (rib) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and is questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Jackson should be active, but check back on Sunday morning. Mike Evans' return takes a little edge off of his upside, but Jackson has usually played well when he is on the injury report.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans on track to play    Fri Oct 10, 01:11 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) looks like he's good to go for Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Evans is just a what the heck flex in his return, and it takes a little edge off of Vincent Jackson's upside. Evans should be picked back up in deeper leagues where he was dropped on news of his injury and a possible multiweek absence.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 9.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson not practicing    Thu Oct 9, 02:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) is not practicing for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: This is a bit of a concern but we won't go all DEFCON 1 unless he doesn't practice. For now, set your alert to DEFCON 3 and make sure you have someone to replace him for Sunday just in case. If he happens to play, we will continue to be concerned that the ribs become an issue during the game, but if all things go smoothly, he should be solid as a WR2.

  Buccaneers | Bucs have faith in Doug Martin    Wed Oct 8, 04:30 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is averaging just 2.5 yards per carry this year, but quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo, who is acting as the interim play-caller, is happy with the play of Martin. 'I like the things Doug has done,' Arroyo said. 'Our run game has to improve, obviously, overall. We believe that as a staff that starts with us. I think wholeheartedly we need to continue to find out what exactly it takes to get us back on track in the run game. There's going to be some finer points, detail and those things execution-wise.' Arroyo doesn't mind giving RB Bobby Rainey carries, but he believes that Martin is still the team's leading running back.

Footballguys view: Martin just doesn't look the same as he did as a rookie phenom in 2012. We'll see if the team's faith will be rewarded by Martin in the near future.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans practices    Wed Oct 8, 02:11 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: Wow, Evans was expected to miss about three weeks initially. He missed last week's game, but he has to be considered questionable for Week 6. The Bucs have a bye in Week 7, so they may choose to shut Evans down until after that. Watch the practice report later in the week.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson posts big yardage    Sun Oct 5, 11:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson had eight receptions for 144 yards in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: It's a one-man show in Tampa! The Saints defense isn't as tough as many thought they'd be, and Jackson has to be relied on even more since rookie WR Mike Evans missed this game. So long as Mike Glennon is the quarterback, we can feel comfortable recommending Jackson as a WR2 with WR1 upside.

  Buccaneers | Nine touches for Bobby Rainey    Sun Oct 5, 11:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey carried six times for 21 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints, and he added three receptions for 21 yards.

Footballguys view: Rainey is clearly playing a backup role to Doug Martin now....but he looks more explosive as a runner. The team will likely keep him as a change-of-pace back moving forward.

  Buccaneers | One grab for Austin Seferian-Jenkins    Sun Oct 5, 10:21 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) was able to play in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints, but he was limited to just one catch for 11 yards.

Footballguys view: Vincent Jackson was the main man in the Bucs pass offense, and that shouldn't change next week against the Ravens.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) is expected to have a significant role Sunday, Oct. 5, in the Week 5 game.

Footballguys view: Seferian-Jenkins is a good waiver wire play this week. He was in on every snap last week and MIke Glennon should target him even more with Mike Evans out.

  Buccaneers | Louis Murphy to start    Sat Oct 4, 08:27 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy will start in Week 5 in place of injured WR Mike Evans (groin).

Footballguys view: Murphy could be a sneaky WR5/flex play at wide receiver but he isn't going to be the same player that Evans was. Glennon needs help besides Vincent Jackson though, so it's worth a hail mary.
