Tampa-bay-buccaneers
When overgrown men take the field on hot summer days, tempers have a tendency to flare. Fights are a common occurrence across NFL training camps, some of which we hear about and most of which he don’t. Last week, Buccaneers defensive tackle Brian Price left the team with an excused absence. According to Bucs website JoeBucsFan.com, his departure came after he punched rookie Mark Barron in the head. As is typically the case, the fight was reportedly over something extremely dumb. Price — who has somewhat of a history with losing his temper –thought Barron was sitting in his seat so he told the rookie to get up. Barron supposedly said something vulgar to him at that point and the two began arguing. That led to the punch, which did not seriously injure Barron.

Buccaneers “clearly” have a role for LeGarrette Blount

The Buccaneers traded back up into the end of the 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft to select Doug Martin, but according to the Tampa Bay Times, there’s still “clearly going to be a role” for incumbent starter LeGarrette Blount. This makes a lot of sense and confirms what I’ve already been thinking for a while. Blount is currently working with the 1st team in OTAs and while...

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy never knew how to tackle until recently.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy has let one of the universal cats out-of-the-bag. The secret is that depending on who coaches you up-through-the ranks, some defensive players (especially linemen) don’t ever get taught proper tackling techniques. In many cases, the coaches just let a big fella fly and if its working they don’t fix anything because their time with a kid...
