  Buccaneers | Danny Lansanah signs tender    Thu Mar 26, 05:36 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Danny Lansanah signed his one-year tender Thursday, March 26.

Footballguys view: As an exclusive rights free agent, Lansanah didn't have much of a choice but to sign his tender. Lansanah played in 16 games last season, recording 81 tackles, three interceptions and 1.5 sacks.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon could be trade option    Wed Mar 25, 02:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has been a topic of conversation from other teams checking on his availability this offseason, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: We've expected this for some time. The Bucs are likely to take a QB (Jameis Winston) with the first-overall pick in the draft. Glennon has plenty of starting experience, and he'd be an upgrade over what some teams have on their roster.

  Buccaneers | TB leaning Jameis Winston    Wed Mar 25, 01:22 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston is the favorite to be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' choice at No. 1 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, and head coach Lovie Smith confirmed it. However, Smith said the team is doing their due diligence on other players they could consider at the top spot. Tampa's research on Winston has them convinced that he can be a leader at the next level. 'Everything checks out on him, too ... the guy can complete every throw,' Smith said. 'A lot has been said about his football intelligence. He's just a leader.'

Footballguys view: This is the worst kept secret in the league. Winston is likely to be with the Buccaneers, and it wouldn't shock us to see them start negotiating a new contract before the draft.

  Buccaneers | Bucs open to drafting QB first overall    Wed Mar 25, 12:02 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are widely believed to be considered by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the first overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, and Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazer has approved the team taking either Winston or Mariota with the No. 1 overall selection. 'But fundamentally, we believe in letting Lovie and Jason do all their ground work, and their staffs, come to their conclusions, discuss it with us, talk about their reasoning and as long as it makes sense, we're supportive. But at the end of the day, whatever decision we make, I see us all being on the same page, agreeing and moving forward,' Glazer said.

Footballguys view: They're more than open to the idea....it's probably their plan. We'd be shocked if Jameis Winston wasn't the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Buccaneers | Brandon Magee waived    Wed Mar 25, 10:27 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Brandon Magee was waived Wednesday, March 25.

Free-agent P Andy Wilder signed an undisclosed deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, March 20.


  Buccaneers | Sterling Moore agrees    Thu Mar 19, 01:35 PM

Free-agent CB Sterling Moore (Cowboys) agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 19, according to a source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Moore stepped in for the Cowboys last season when Morris Claiborne was hurt, starting nine games and playing nickel corner for Dallas. The Cowboys didn't tender him at all (he was technically a restricted free agent) so he became an unrestricted free agent and the Bucs were happy to give him a shot. If he can replicate his 2014, it could be a very nice upgrade for Tampa Bay.

  Buccaneers | Looking at George Selvie    Thu Mar 19, 02:37 AM

  Buccaneers | Lose interest in Greg Hardy    Wed Mar 18, 01:35 PM

Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Panthers) does not appear to be an option for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers anymore since the team has lost interest in him.

Footballguys view: "Lose interest" means "his price got too high" in coachspeak...or is it GMspeak? Either way, it looks like Hardy is going to play for the Cowboys in 2015.

  Buccaneers | Interested in Dan Connolly    Tue Mar 17, 01:58 PM

Free-agent OG Dan Connolly (Patriots) is receiving interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the guard position.

  Buccaneers | Greg Hardy to visit    Tue Mar 17, 12:05 PM

Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Panthers) is scheduled to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Hardy will be a dangerous pass-rusher for any team that's interested. The Buccaneers have been trying to rebuild their defense, and Hardy would be a fine asset--even though he may be suspended the first six games of the season.

  Buccaneers | Marcus Mariota visiting TB    Mon Mar 16, 05:28 PM

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is visiting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, March 16. He is one of several players that they are considering with the top overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: They are likely to select Jameis Winston (Florida State) with the first-overall pick. Simply put, Winston is better than Mariota on the field. Winston can make stick throws into coverage, and he's spent plenty of time working under center. Mariota needs to work on both of these things, in addition to multiple other issues.

  Buccaneers | Visit with Sterling Moore    Thu Mar 12, 12:42 PM

Free-agent CB Sterling Moore (Cowboys) is visiting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Moore isn't a starting-caliber corner, but he'd fit in nicely as a nickel corner. In 2014, he started seven games for the Cowboys and finished the year with 46 tackles and two fumble recoveries.

  Buccaneers | Chris Conte agrees with Tampa    Thu Mar 12, 10:07 AM

Free-agent FS Chris Conte (Bears) agreed to a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Dashon Goldson is out, and Conte is likely in at free safety for the Bucs. He has two years experience playing under Lovie Smith from their days together with the Bears. If healthy, he's a decent starter in the secondary.

  Buccaneers | Henry Melton agrees with Tampa    Thu Mar 12, 09:26 AM

Free-agent DT Henry Melton (Cowboys) agreed to a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Melton worked under Lovie Smith in Chicago, and he gives them an upgrade on the defensive line. He'll work into some form of a rotation behind Gerald McCoy and Clinton McDonald.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Michael Johnson was officially released Wednesday, March 11, a year after signing a five-year, $43.8 million deal. He will collect $7 million in guarantees in 2015, but the release saves the Bucs $2 million in salary cap space.

  Buccaneers | Bruce Carter signing    Wed Mar 11, 05:10 PM

Free-agent LB Bruce Carter (Cowboys) is signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wednesday, March 11, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Carter is getting good money from the Bucs despite mostly being a disappointment with the Cowboys. Tampa is having to re-live their bad signings from last year in the form of releases of Anthony Collins and Michael Johnson. Hopefully for Carter and the team history won't repeat itself next year.

  Buccaneers | Michael Johnson to be released    Wed Mar 11, 03:35 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Michael Johnson will be released Wednesday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Johnson joins Anthony Collins as players who got a lot of money from the Bucs last year for one poor season. The Bengals could be interested in a return for Johnson, who was limited by a high ankle sprain for part of 2014.

  Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey receivers tender    Tue Mar 10, 09:56 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent RB Bobby Rainey received a $1.54 million tender Tuesday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Rainey is a decent back to keep around, and that's what the Bucs are essentially doing here. He'll once again work as a RB3 behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims. The team now has the right to match any offer from another organization.

  Buccaneers | Derrick Morgan might visit    Tue Mar 10, 09:55 PM

Free-agent LB Derrick Morgan (Titans) might visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week if he leaves his visit with the Atlanta Falcons without a deal, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Morgan has played well as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but he may be better suited to play defensive end in a 4-3. That's the position he starred in during his college days at Georgia Tech.

Free-agent LB Bruce Carter (Cowboys) will visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Lawrence Sidbury re-signed to an undisclosed deal Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: We'll continue to see Sidbury--and his trademarked spin move--in Tampa. They brought him in late last year after he began 2014 with the Houston Texans. Sidbury is a reserve player and part-time pass-rusher at best.

  Buccaneers | Jorvorskie Lane not expected to receive offer    Mon Mar 9, 02:53 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers exclusive rights free-agent FB Jorvorskie Lane is not expected to receive a tender offer from the Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: The Bucs could bring him back after he tests the market. Outside of a team like Denver or Minnesota, there aren't many teams in need of a fullback.

Free-agent CB Ron Parker (Chiefs) has received interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and sources indicate Parker is interested in talking once the league year opens Tuesday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Parker can play cornerback or safety in the pros. He's likely a better safety than he is a corner. Several teams are interested in this position versatile player.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OT Bryan Bulaga is receiving interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources.

  Buccaneers | Major Wright re-ups with Tampa    Sat Mar 7, 06:13 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent SS Major Wright agreed to a deal to re-sign with the Buccaneers Saturday, March 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A favorite of head coach Lovie Smith, Wright sticks around as an "in the box" run-stuffer for the Bucs. The sixth-year defender played in 12 games last year before landing on injured reserve with a rib injury.

  Buccaneers | Luke Stocker agrees to terms    Sat Mar 7, 11:04 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent TE Luke Stocker has agreed to a new contract with the Buccaneers. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Stocker is only a reserve tight end who will have little fantasy impact in 2015. Even his dynasty value is non-existent. The 2011 fourth-round pick only has 35 career receptions in four seasons.

  Buccaneers | Zach Miller a target for TB?    Fri Mar 6, 07:05 PM

Free-agent TE Zach Miller (Seahawks) could be an option for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Free-agent DE Trent Cole (Eagles) is visiting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 5.

Footballguys view: Cole has 88.5 career sacks, and teams will be interested in the veteran pass-rusher. He can play in a 3-4 or a 4-3, and that versatility will also help his stock on the open market.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wants to be QB in Tampa    Tue Mar 3, 04:45 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston said that he wants to be Tampa Bay's quarterback and added that he's excited to potentially throw the ball to WR Vincent Jackson after visiting with the Buccaneers Tuesday, March 3.

Footballguys view: Winston is likely to be the top pick in the draft. The Buccaneers need a franchise quarterback, and adding Winston would make a ton of sense. On the field, there's several things to like about his skill set as he plays a lot like Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers). Off the field is where things get complicated. The Bucs will have to be okay drafting a guy with some baggage--and they'll have to feel good he'll stay out of trouble as a pro.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston visiting Tampa Bay    Tue Mar 3, 11:18 AM

Florida State University QB Jameis Winston is visiting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday, March 3.

Footballguys view: This is the worst kept secret in the league. It seems like a slam dunk that Winston is going to be the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. The Buccaneers have a need at the QB position, and Winston should be the guy they peg as their franchise QB.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent OG Mike Iupati is drawing interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Iupati is arguably the best guard available on the open market. We're certain that several teams will be interested. The Bucs will need a revamped offensive line to protect Jameis Winston--likely the first overall pick in the draft.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson not asked for pay cut    Sat Feb 28, 03:07 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson was not asked to take a pay cut this season, despite a previous report that he had been asked to do so.

Footballguys view: Jackson is still expected to return this season, and he'll provide the team with star potential at the WR position once again. If (when) Jameis Winston is the first overall pick, the Bucs will be wise to surround him with as much talent as possible.

  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.

  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.
