The Penalty Flag:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense led by Lavonte David, Mason Foster and Ronde Barber were horrific in 2012. Ranking 29th in the league in sacks and dead last in passing yards allowed, they were an embarrassment, or were they?
The Buccaneers finished number one against the run allowing only 1,320 yards on the ground and only 3.5 yards per carry. Opposing teams averaged only 82.5 yards per carry which is a ginormous difference between the worst team in the league, 147.6 by the New Orleans Saints... Read more

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been thin in the secondary for a few years. They added a major piece of the puzzle with Mark Barron last year, but they still need to upgrade the situation at cornerback. Eric Wright was overpaid last offseason and is now likely to be cut loose.

I think the Giants would like to keep...
This is a reader submission from an author who wishes to remain anonymous? Who will the Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft this April? Depends on what happens during the NFL free agency period. The creator of this mock likes to add: “I’d like to see them sign Ed Reed being that the Ravens will probably be forced to let him go because of (paying Joe) Flacco. Not only can he still play...
During the 2012 season, there were times where Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano was careful to not say the word “concussion” when addressing players who appeared on injury reports with a head injury. But the Buccaneers are not the only ones who take that approach. In fact, teams categorize possible concussions as “illness”, “head injury”, or “neck injury.” Such...
Rick Stroud of the Tampa Tribune expects to see the Buccaneers pursue Giants TE Martellus Bennett during free agency
The Buccaneers made due with Dallas Clark and Luke Stocker, but they could really use an impact player at the position.
