  Buccaneers | Ali Marpet working on new position    Sat Apr 22, 10:14 PM

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay eyeing Samaje Perine?    Fri Apr 21, 09:49 PM

Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have shown the most interest in him.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are looking at running back with the future of Doug Martin (suspended the first three games of the year) up in the air. Perine is likely to be a second or third round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He reminds us of Michael Turner (former Falcons starter) because of his power, quickness and ability to grind down defenses or gash them with a big play.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans' option picked up    Mon Apr 17, 12:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, April 17.

Footballguys view: An incredibly easy decision here for the Bucs. Evans has been one of the most productive receivers in the league since 2014, and he's only getting better at just 23 years old. We should see him become one of the league's highest-paid wide receivers before his current contract is up after 2018.

  Buccaneers | Five Bucs sign tenders    Mon Apr 17, 10:17 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers exclusive rights free-agent CB Jude Adjei-Barimah, LB Adarius Glanton, WR Adam Humphries and WR Freddie Martino signed their tenders Monday, April 17. Restricted free-agent QB Ryan W. Griffin also signed his tender.

Footballguys view: Humphries continues as the team's slot receiver, although they could add a receiving weapon in the 2017 NFL draft to compete with him. His fantasy value takes a hit this year with the free agent addition of speedy WR DeSean Jackson.

  Buccaneers | Cameron Brate signs tender    Mon Apr 17, 10:17 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers exclusive rights free-agent TE Cameron Brate signed his tender Monday, April 17.

Footballguys view: As an ERFA, Brate didn't really have much of a choice. He had a breakout season with 57 catches, 660 yards and eight receiving touchdowns. Jameis Winston loves to target the tight end early and often, and posting similar numbers in 2017 is well within reason for Brate. The addition of deep threat DeSean Jackson this offseason will change the target structure, but Brate should still be quite involved.

  Buccaneers | Jacquies Smith to work out    Mon Apr 17, 09:45 AM

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin back with team    Mon Apr 17, 09:27 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has completed rehab and re-joined the team for offseason conditioning.

Footballguys view: Martin is trying to get his life back on track, and that's why he went to rehab. He's going to miss the first three games of the season due to a suspension, and his spot on the 53-man roster is tenuous at best.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson hopes to re-up with Bucs    Sat Apr 15, 07:06 PM

Free-agent WR Vincent Jackson (Buccaneers) hopes to continue playing in 2017, and he hinted recently he would like to do so with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Jackson is not the player he used to be, but he could return to the Bucs for the veteran minimum. They added DeSean Jackson in free agency earlier this year to line up opposite Mike Evans on the outside. With Adam Humphries manning the slot, it would be difficult to find a spot on the field for Jackson.

  Buccaneers | Bucs to meet with Dalvin Cook    Wed Apr 12, 06:34 PM

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook is scheduled to meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Cook has fumbling and off field issues that have caused his draft stock to fall. He's explosive and can make big plays out of nothing as a runner. Cook may be a late first round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. The Bucs are sitting there with the 19th pick, and Cook should be an option.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin to work out with team next week    Sun Apr 9, 03:56 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is expected to be with the team for the start of offseason workouts Monday, April 17, according to Florida Football Insiders' Roy Cummings.

Footballguys view: Martin is suspended the first three games of the 2017 season, but he can attend workouts, OTAs, minicamp and training camp. He can participate in preseason games too, but once the regular season begins he has to vacate the facility. Some question whether or not he'll even be with the team due to his salary ($7 million).

  Buccaneers | J.R. Sweezy reworks deal    Sat Apr 8, 02:41 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OG J.R. Sweezy agreed to restructure his contract, according to source. Sweezy will have the chance to make up to $25.5 million in the final four years of the contract. The new deal also gives the team protection in case Sweezy has further back problems.

  Buccaneers | Joe Mixon visits with Bucs    Fri Apr 7, 05:57 PM

Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are looking for running back help even though they kept Jacquizz Rodgers and still have Doug Martin on the roster. Mixon could be a first round pick this year, but he most likely falls to the second round due to a domestic violence incident from 2014 where Mixon broke several bones in a woman's face after an altercation at a sandwich shop.

  Buccaneers | Adoree' Jackson meets with Bucs    Wed Apr 5, 04:02 PM

Southern California CB Adoree' Jackson met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, April 3.

Footballguys view: Jackson has the potential to make a great impact as a pro. He might be the most athletic player in the draft at the cornerback position. Jackson should be able to start right away as a slot corner, plus he can make big plays as a return man. He'll likely be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Buccaneers | Rodney Adams to work out for TBB    Mon Apr 3, 10:58 AM

South Florida WR Rodney Adams will work out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, April 3.

Footballguys view: Adams is a quick/fast wide receiver who can contribute as a return man as well. He can readjust to poorly thrown passes and make plays near the sidelines. Adams is a slot receiver and likely late-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Buccaneers | TB to meet with Derek Barnett    Sun Apr 2, 09:58 AM

Tennessee DE Derek Barnett is expected to meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers later this month.

Footballguys view: Barnett would make a lot of sense for any team interested. He was incredibly productive at Tennessee, breaking Reggie White's all-time sack record or the university. Barnett is technically sound and quite capable of making plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage. The Bucs have the 19th-overall pick, and Barnett may be gone by that time.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston to move out of the pocket    Sat Apr 1, 03:51 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said the team will continue to have some plays that call for QB Jameis Winston to throw outside the pocket because he had success with those plays in 2016.

Footballguys view: Winston is a pocket passer, but he's got the athleticism to move plays outside if need be. The team should design things where he can get his feet set and fire downfield for targets like Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay will not pursue Colin Kaepernick    Sat Apr 1, 03:47 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) will not receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because general manager Jason Licht does not think Kaepernick is a good fit for the offense.

Footballguys view: The offense is geared towards being in the pocket, although reports indicate they'll move Jameis Winston around a bit in 2017. Kaepernick may want to be a starter, but it doesn't seem like anyone is going to offer him that position. He'll have to accept being a backup if he wants to keep playing.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Griffin may be No. 2 QB    Sat Apr 1, 03:47 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan W. Griffin appears to be the leading candidate to be the No. 2 quarterback for the Buccaneers next season.

Footballguys view: With Mike Glennon (Bears) moving on in free agency, Griffin is the next man up. A pocket passer from Tulane, Griffin has never attempted a pass in the NFL. He was an undrafted free agent for the Saints in 2013 and spent two seasons on their practice squad.

  Buccaneers | Adrian Peterson not in Tampa Bay's plans    Sat Apr 1, 11:38 AM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is almost certain not to end up signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Footballguys view: The buzz is the Bucs are going to wait to see what shakes out in this deep RB class before deciding the fate of Doug Martin. It looks like Peterson is going to have to keep waiting.

  Buccaneers | Adrian Peterson not in Tampa's plans    Sat Apr 1, 12:16 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said he is interested to hear how QB Jameis Winston's workouts with free-agent RB Adrian Peterson went, but Peterson isn't currently in Tampa Bay's plans.

Footballguys view: The plans could change, but for now Peterson has to wait. His price tag may be too high for teams to consider, and there is some buzz that teams believe Peterson's lost a step. He'll play in 2017, but where is a mystery at this moment.

  Buccaneers | Adrian Peterson working out with Bucs QB    Thu Mar 30, 10:24 AM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) was pictured working out with Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston Tuesday, March 28.

Footballguys view: If the rumors of what Peterson wants to get paid are true, he can workout with whoever he wants and it won't matter. Peterson has a little gas left in the tank, but it's not enough to warrant getting starter money. If he goes to the Bucs, he'd start while Doug Martin is suspended the first three games of the season. After that, the Bucs would use some form of RBBC.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin to meet with Bucs    Mon Mar 27, 10:21 AM

Penn State WR Chris Godwin has a visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scheduled in April.

Footballguys view: Godwin was a productive receiver for the Nittany Lions, and he was at his best in their bowl games. Godwin is tough to bring down after the catch, and he can either work the sidelines or the deep middle of the field. With his ability to contribute as a receiver or return man, plus with his nose for the end zone (11 receiving TDs in 2016), Godwin should be a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay works out Kevin King    Sun Mar 26, 05:35 PM

Washington CB Kevin King recently worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: King is one of the fastest risers on draft boards right now. An impressive performance at the Scouting Combine isn't the only reason, King showed on film the ability to be a big press corner. He's unusually tall for the position, measuring in at 6'3" 200 pounds. Not known as a physical tackler, King could also contribute at free safety.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay targeting Marlon Mack?    Thu Mar 23, 11:08 PM

South Florida RB Marlon Mack has met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers multiple times, and head coach Dirk Koetter attended Mack's pro day.

Footballguys view: Mack would work well in the Bucs RBBC. He's not necessarily a back you want to feature unless he learns better discipline as a runner. Mack bounces stuff outside too often and does not consistently run through arm tackles.

  Buccaneers | David Njoku meets with Tampa Bay    Wed Mar 22, 02:47 PM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are putting more weapons around QB Jameis Winston, and that's why they added DeSean Jackson in free agency. Njoku may be the no.2 TE in this draft behind Alabama's O.J. Howard. He's a good receiver with the ability to create mismatches no matter where he lines up.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin to be featured?    Sun Mar 19, 08:52 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head Dirk Koetter said it is hard to feature two running backs in an offense, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he is looking forward to having RB Doug Martin back. 'It will be great getting a guy like Doug back to where he was that will add to that explosion, because we just didn't have that in the run game last year, with all the injuries,' Monken said. 'We had six different guys carry the ball last year.'

Footballguys view: Martin is suspended for the first three games of the 2017 season. The Bucs will use Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims in a RBBC while he's out. Martin is out of rehab and all signs point towards him focusing on football again. We'll see if the Bucs do indeed feature him upon his return.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay willing to draft RB    Sun Mar 19, 08:40 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said the Buccaneers are not 'desperate' for a running back but are 'always looking' and willing to take advantage of a draft that is deep at the position.

Footballguys view: The RB class is pretty good this year. We'll describe this as a 'wide' class instead of a 'deep' class. The reason? There are all sorts of options depending on the kind of back you need. The Bucs could use a backup feature back behind Doug Martin. Jacquizz Rodgers is more of a change-of-pace back, while Charles Sims is more of a receiving back.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin out of rehab    Sun Mar 19, 01:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin completed his stay at an undisclosed rehab center in February, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. He will still miss the first three games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy in December.

Footballguys view: Martin has checked in with the coaching staff, and reports indicate it was a positive meeting. We could see the Bucs draft a back this year with the idea he could be part of the future. With Martin out the first three games of 2017, Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims should work as a RBBC.

  Buccaneers | Cecil Shorts' rehab could take two years    Tue Mar 14, 11:31 PM

Free-agent WR Cecil Shorts (Buccaneers) has had two knee surgeries and will require at least one more after tearing the ACL, MCL and PCL in his right knee, as well as dislocating his kneecap, during Week 13 this past season. He's three months into a rehab process that is expected to last between 18 and 24 months, and there's no guarantee Shorts will be able to play football again.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay GM optimistic about RBs    Sat Mar 11, 06:29 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht claimed to be 'very excited' about his team's running backs and the position 'may not be as grim as a lot of people (think it is) or (what) the perception is.'

Footballguys view: Lord knows if that excitement includes Doug Martin. He's suspended the first three games of the year, and his spot on the roster has been in question. The Bucs re-signed Jacquizz Rodgers, and he should work in a RBBC with Charles Sims while Martin is out.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson will return punts with the Buccaneers, but head coach Dirk Koetter said the team will be selective when to use him in that role.

Footballguys view: That only makes sense with Jackson's game-breaking ability. Keep this in mind if you play in a league that rewards points for return yardage or return touchdowns.
