The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Washington Redskins this evening in their final preseason game of the year. A familiar face to Buccaneers fans will be on the sidelines this evening, but he’ll be on the visiting sideline, Raheem Morris. Morris was fired by the Buccaneers after a complete collapse of the club in the 2011 season but quickly joined the Washington Redskins and has become the club’s secondary coach.
Morris started his coaching career with the Buccaneers and filled a similar role for Tampa. In 2009, Morris promoted to defensive coordinator after Monte Kiffin announced he would be leaving to join his son’s coaching staff in Tennessee. Morris was then quickly named the Buccaneers head coach after Jon Gruden was unexpectedly released by the club.
Morris had a rocky rookie year, posting a 3-13 record but rebounded with one of the youngest rosters in the league in 2010 after a 10-6 campaign. The youth movement in Tampa appeared to be gelling under Morris. The Buccaneers ...

Former Buccaneers’ head coach Raheem Morris took a lot of the blame for the collapse of the 2011 season that resulted in his firing. Now with the Washington Redskins coaching the defensive backs, he holds no grudges nor is angered with the Tampa Bay organization.
Speaking on 620 WDAE this morning, Morris talked about how he felt the time for the Bucs to spend in free agency was...
In the blink of an eye, arguably the best line the Tampa Bay Bucs ever assembled on offense became a broken line late last week.
Now, with the regular season only two weeks away, the Bucs have to find a way to carry on without Pro Bowl right guard and offensive line leader Davin Joseph.
But thats life in the NFL. Joseph was lost for the season Friday night on a routine play away...

After trading back into the first round to grab Stanford running back Doug Martin, it appeared as though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had given up on LeGarrette Blount as their starting running back. As training camps began and the pre...
According to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times, Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is participating in today’s practice while Adrian Clayborn is being held out.
Looks like Gerald McCoy is fine. He’s working today. Adrian Clayborn being held out tho. Neither injury expected to be problematic

The last few years we have seen the good, bad, and ugly from Josh Freeman. For the Buccaneers to be successful Josh Freeman must cut down on his mistakes. His 22 interceptions last season was unacceptable and must be lowered. LeGarrette Blount will be back and will be asked to carry the load at running back. He has been injury prone and that continues to plaque him it seems. Rookie...
Sorry to interrupt what was probably a great Monday. Could use some help here. Look at this Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader pic we found. LOOK AT IT. The picture was a screenshot from this weekend’s game against the Patriots. Let’s just say this girl has seen better days. Why can’t we figure out who she is? Yes, this is our bread and butter, but this time we need your help...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers put two-time Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph on injured reserve and placed second-year defensive end Da'Quan Bowers on the reserve/physically unable to perform list Monday, when the roster was trimmed to the 75-man limit for the final preseason game.
Joseph tore the patellar tendon in his right knee during last week's 30-28 exhibition victory over New...
Like the rest of the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were required to trim their roster down to 75 players by 4:00 PM on Monday.
Well, that time came and went with the Bucs being the last team to publicly release their roster cuts.
But a few hours later the names are in and here is the list of the moves made in order to get Tampa Bay down to the league requirement:
The Buccaneers were dealt bad news when they found out that right guard Davin Joseph tore his patellar tendon and would need to be placed on season ending IR. Joseph signed a 7 year, 52.5 million dollar deal last offseason and the Buccaneers were counting on him to be a crucial part of their new conservative, run heavy, smash mouth offense. However, despite his large salary, Joseph...

Quarterback Josh Freeman got off to a slow start in the Bucs’ first two preseason games, and he wasn’t any better Friday night against the Patriots. Continuing to look uncomfortable in new coördinator Mike Sullivan’s offense, Freeman completed 10-of-19 passes for 102 yards. He has leaned heavily on $55 million wideout Vincent Jackson throughout August, but otherwise relied [...]
The Cincinnati Bengals have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting center Jeff Faine.
