  Buccaneers | Gerald McCoy receives new deal    Sat Oct 25, 12:55 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy has agreed to terms with the team on a seven-year contract extension worth close to $100 million.

Footballguys view: McCoy is a dominant player when healthy. He struggled with injuries when he first came out of Oklahoma as the number three overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. Over the last two years, McCoy has become one of the best interior defensive linemen in the league. He's a hard worker, and McCoy is well worth the hefty contract the Bucs rewarded him with.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson wants to stay    Thu Oct 23, 06:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson, who has been the subject of trade rumors lately, said he prefers to remain with the team. 'In this business, those kinds of things get talked about quite often. Each and every year, there's going to be guys moved around to different teams,' Jackson said. 'I'm not surprised by it. Obviously I appreciate teams' interest, but I'm happy here in Tampa. I've heard nothing here that would suggest I'm going anywhere. I'm going to let that pass on and keep doing my job.' Jackson leads the team in with 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns this year.

Footballguys view: There were rumors swirling that Jackson was on the trade block. Never say never, but the Bucs would be wise to keep their best offensive asset around....unless they get a deal they can't refuse.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (rib) was on the practice field during the portion of practice open to the media Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: We're glad to see this, and it's a good sign he'll be playing this weekend against Minnesota. It's a good matchup for him, and he should put up borderline WR1 numbers, though on the low end of the spectrum.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay QB decision not made yet    Wed Oct 22, 03:45 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QBs Josh McCown and Mike Glennon are waiting to see who will be starting Week 8. Head coach Lovie Smith said he will see how they do this week before making a decision.

Footballguys view: For the love of all things that are holy, why in the world would McCown even be considered as a starter? Glennon has looked bad at times this year, but he's certainly looked better than what McCown showed earlier this season. We hope--and assume rational coaching here, but in the NFL you just never know.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims practicing    Wed Oct 22, 02:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but will not be added to the roster until he is activated from the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Sims is an interesting name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues. Dynasty owners are certainly interested in seeing what he can do. Sims has a skill set similar to that of a poor man's version of Matt Forte. When he's active, the Bucs could choose to mix him in if Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey are struggling.

  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.

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

  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.

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.

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

  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 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.
