  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.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson to occasionally return punts    Sat Mar 11, 12:23 PM

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.

Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Chiefs) is receiving interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the interest is mutual, according to sources.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson officially signs with Bucs    Thu Mar 9, 05:53 PM

Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) officially signed to a three-year, $35 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 9.

Footballguys view: The Bucs get a deep threat who should work well opposite Mike Evans. Jackson can take the top off the defense, and he's got WR2 value catching passes from Jameis Winston.

Free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers (Buccaneers) agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 9, worth $3.3 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The team has to get Doug Martin through a three-game ban to begin the season. Rodgers did a good job last year filling in as the starter for Martin, and he should do the same in 2017.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson expected to Bucs    Thu Mar 9, 08:37 AM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson is expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: An interesting fit as the Bucs could use a vertical threat especially with Vincent Jackson declining. How much he still has in the tank is a question but he's topped 1,000 yards three of the last four seasons despite missing a few games each of the last three.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers is expected to re-sign with the Buccaneers, according to a source.

  Buccaneers | Strong 'belief' DeSean Jackson signs w/ TB    Sat Mar 4, 06:07 PM

Impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Redskins) is expected to land a contract that will pay him close to $12 million annually, and the among league personnel at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is that Jackson will sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Footballguys view: The Bucs could use a weapon like Jackson to stretch the field opposite Mike Evans. It had been believed that the Eagles would do the most to get Jackson back. It looks like they'll be getting some competition in their quest to bring Jackson back to the City of Brotherly Love.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson possibly could retire?    Thu Mar 2, 08:01 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson and the team have met this offseason, though no plans have been revealed about his future. Retirement is a 'possibility,' as he has finished the last two seasons on injured reserve with knee injuries. General manager Jason Licht said 'we'll always want Vincent to be around the organization.'

Footballguys view: Jackson's age seems to have caught up with him. Don't be shocked if he doesn't return or if the Bucs kick the tires on a guy like Alshon Jeffery. They could use another big weapon opposite Mike Evans, so they will both test the market and look over the draft carefully.

  Buccaneers | Mike Glennon offered big money    Thu Mar 2, 05:27 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon was offered $8 million per year to stay as the backup quarterback. That figure would make Glennon the highest paid backup in the NFL.

Footballguys view: He may wait and see if anyone wants to give him more or a shot at a starting gig. We think a team like the Jets or Bills could have interest, but we also think the Bucs may not leave that offer out there forever. Glennon has shown a little, but that was a while ago. Is he worth more? Does he gamble he is? We think he will.

  Buccaneers | No quick decision coming on Doug Martin    Wed Mar 1, 09:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is unlikely to find out his fate regarding his status with the team anytime in the near future, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: Doug Martin was suspended four games for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy. He missed Week 17 of the 2016 season, and he will also miss Weeks 1-3 of the 2017 season. Martin's four-game suspension will make void his $7 million in guaranteed money next year, according to sources. The writing has been on the wall with Martin for some time, and we'd be surprised if he returned to Tampa in 2017.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Griffin receives offer    Wed Mar 1, 06:26 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent QB Ryan W. Griffin has received a two-year contract offer from the Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Griffin is an interesting developmental quarterback. The Bucs could have him as their no.2 quarterback behind Jameis Winston if Mike Glennon moves on in free agency. Dynasty owners in super deep leagues should be keeping tabs on Griffin because of his skill set as a pocket passer.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay makes offer to Mike Glennon    Wed Mar 1, 06:10 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made an offer to impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon that would make him the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are trying to CYA with a quality backup, and the offer makes sense. Glennon is expected to hit the free-agent market with a possibility to start but is evaluating each team because he believes an unstable coaching situation could hurt his chances to succeed.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson could draw Bucs' interest    Tue Feb 21, 11:48 AM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson could receive interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources. Jackson has a rapport with QB Jameis Winston.

Footballguys view: With Mike Evans on one side and DeSean Jackson on the other, the Bucs would have an even more formidable passing attack. Jackson should get more than a few teams interested in his services when he hits the open market.

  Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson likely done in Tampa    Fri Feb 17, 11:50 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Vincent Jackson isn't likely to be back with the team in 2017 and could be finished in the NFL, according to beat writer Scott Reynolds.

Footballguys view: The writing has been on the wall as Jackson is no longer the player he used to be. Jackson may struggle to latch on with another team, and even if he does sign somewhere else nobody is expecting him to be much of a fantasy factor.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin still in Bucs' plans?    Thu Feb 16, 01:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was expected to be released or traded before the 2017 NFL season, but the front office may be willing to keep Martin around and 'play the situation out,' according to Roy Cummings, of FloridaFootballInsiders.com. Martin is suspended the first three games of 2017 and will not cost the team any money if he is indeed released.

Footballguys view: The Bucs will play this close to the vest in case they can trade him. Even if they want to cut him, they won't say it. That said, cutting him or trading him are real possibilities and so expect them to show interest in some free agents this offseason, and draft prospects this April. We think Martin could have a lot of value elsewhere, but being out for three weeks will reduce any fantasy value considerably.

  Buccaneers | Record season for Cameron Brate    Sun Feb 12, 08:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate tied the single-season franchise record for touchdown receptions by a tight end with eight in 2016.

Footballguys view: When QB Jameis Winston was in college at Florida State, he targeted the tight end position more than any other passer in the FBS. His love of throwing to the tight end has continued to the pros. Brate finished as the no. 6 overall tight end for fantasy owners in standard-scoring leagues. If healthy, he's a TE1 in 2017.
