  Buccaneers | Philip Rivers an option for Tampa Bay?    Mon Jan 20, 01:44 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers is set to become a free agent at the end of the league year and recently moved from San Diego to Florida in order to be closer to his family in Alabama. The combination of the two is fueling 'a lot of buzz' that Rivers may be a potential target for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Footballguys view: We should see Rivers playing elsewhere in 2020. The long-time Chargers starter could be an option for the Buccaneers but they have to first decide whether or not they'll be moving on from Jameis Winston. The buzz around the league is that the Colts may also have interest in Rivers.

  Buccaneers | Eight signed by Bucs    Tue Jan 7, 12:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Jordan Leggett, DL Jeremiah Ledbetter, OLB Quinton Bell, C Anthony Fabiano, S Deiondre' Hall, CB Herb Miller, OT Brad Seaton, and RB Aca'Cedric Ware were signed to reserve/future contracts Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: We'll keep an eye on Leggett but only in crazy deep dynasty formats. He's always had natural talent and ability as a pass-catcher but has never played up to his potential.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber hopes to return    Sun Jan 5, 01:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Peyton Barber said he would like to re-sign with the Buccaneers this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers added Barber as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in 2016. Since that time, Barber has been the top back for the team here and there, rushing for 1,987 yards and 15 touchdowns. Ronald Jones is now the starter for the Buccaneers, and the team may not consider Barber much of a priority as they'll look to upgrade the position behind Jones.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wearing cast on thumb    Sat Jan 4, 07:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (thumb) is wearing a cast on the right thumb he injured during the regular season.

Footballguys view: The full cast on his thumb shows how serious the injury was for Winston. He played through the injury and it caused him great pain. Winston showed toughness and finished the year as the NFL's passing leader with 5,109 passing yards. We shall now see if Bucs head coach Bruce Arians wants to keep Winston around with a new contract or if the team heads in a different direction at the position for 2020 and beyond.

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David reaches rare milestone    Sat Jan 4, 03:25 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David has amassed 1,000 tackles, 20 sacks and 20 interceptions over his first eight NFL seasons, becoming just the second player to reach all three marks since sacks became an official stat in 1982.

Footballguys view: David is a special player and has been ever since he entered the league. A second-round pick out of Nebraska in 2012, David is a pro's pro and one of the best at his position. He is showing no signs of slowing down and will be a key defender for the Bucs in 2020.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin extension a top priority    Mon Dec 30, 02:26 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin is a player the team considers a top priority in terms of getting a contract extension done this offseason, according to comments made by head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Godwin's current deal runs through the 2020 season, but he's only set to have a cap hit of $966k next year. With his 85 catches for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns, Godwin has outperformed his contract. A third-round pick out of Penn State in the 2017 NFL draft, Godwin finally got his chance to shine and he did by putting up great numbers even though he missed the final two games with a hamstring injury.

  Buccaneers | Breshad Perriman hoping to stay put    Mon Dec 30, 12:48 PM

Impending free-agent WR Breshad Perriman (Buccaneers) told reporters Monday, Dec. 30, that his preference is to remain with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Perriman has made himself a ton of money at the end of the 2019 season, having three 100-yard games over the last three weeks. He's set to be an unrestricted free agent in the spring, and the wide receiver class of veterans isn't that strong this year. His injury woes may finally be behind him and that first-round talent that he had with the Ravens has finally come through with the Buccaneers.

  Buccaneers | Week 17 final stats for Buccaneers    Sun Dec 29, 04:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 13-of-24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons. RB Ronald Jones ran 11 times for 106 yards with two grabs for 10 yards, while WR Breshad Perriman led the way with five catches for 134 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. TE Cameron Brate had just one grab for two yards and a score on three targets. RB Peyton Barber ended up with six runs for 10 yards with two receptions for 25 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Winston threw a pick six in overtime on his last pass of the season. If it's his last pass as a Buc, then his career there will begin and end with pick sixes. The Bucs have a tough offseason decision on Winston, who will be a free agent. Ronald Jones had some promising moments this year and Perriman is about get paid in free agency.

We don't make those decisions until the end of the season,' Arians said.
