  Buccaneers | Hovan bulking up    Wed Jun 3, 11:21 PM

Roy Cummings, of The Tampa Tribune, reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want DT Chris Hovan to bulk up.

Footballguys view: Hovan is looking to come to training camp at around 310 pounds. Hovan said, "I'm never going to be a guy that carries 330 pounds. But I can hold 305 pounds or 310 pounds and hold it well, and that's what I'm trying to get to." In new coordinator Jim Bates' defensive scheme the defensive tackles have to be big enough to keep offensive lineman from getting to the second level and taking on linebackers.
