According to Gil Arcia of The Bay Cave, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are close to signing former Florida running back and Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps.
“To confirm on an earlier report from Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com, a source with knowledge of the two sides confirmed with TheBayCave.com that the signing is imminent and the Bucs are not just interested, but are currently working on a contract with Jeff Demp” reported Arcia.
The addition of Demps would give the Bucs a nice one-two punch along with rookie Doug Martin.

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams had acceptable stats in 2011. But after the numbers he put up as a rookie the year before, he views it as a “terrible season.” Williams hopes the addition of wide receiver Vincent Jackson, which moves him from split end to flanker, will help him bounce back to the form he [...]
New Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano believes that if a team is the least penalized in the league, the players aren't trying hard enough.
There's a lot of crummy quarterbacks in the NFL. And while Josh Freeman might not be one of them, he's certainly not as good as his teammate, Vincent Jackson, believes. In fact, Jackson's confidence is downright laughable. Jackson, who is entering his first season in Tampa Bay, spoke highly of his new Buccaneers squad on Monday, but it's his comment regarding Freeman...
On the final day of training camp for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman was present at One Buccaneer Place preparing to call two early regular season games.

With a new head coach, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look like a team not to be reckoned with. Greg Schiano has jumped on this year after being in college ball for years. After being stuck at 4-12 last year, there needed to be a change. From the sideline talk, Schiano seems to be taking the [...]
Vincent Jackson was signed to be a No. 1 receiver, something the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have rarely had in nearly four decades in the NFL.
Jackson, who proved a deep threat in seven seasons with the San Diego Chargers, is the only proven veteran on a young receiving corps that will look to him for leadership and touchdowns.
The Bucs plan to line him up in several different spots...
Apparently Greg Schiano hasn't seen enough speed or playmaking in the return game during training camp because he is looking for an upgrade.
As first reported by PewterReport.com, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are interested in signing Olympic sprinter and former Florida Gators RB/WR Jeff Demps. Demps just got back from London where he helped the U.S. win a silver medal in the...
Gotta appreciate a new teammate standing up for his quarterback, especially when that teammate needs the quarterback to get him the ball regularly.Pro Football Talk is reporting that new Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver went out on a huge limb Monday when he proclaimed his new signal-caller one of the top five quarterbacks in the game. Yes, V-Jax went there with his top five dead...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have little to show for the four first- and second-round picks they spent on defensive linemen in the drafts of 2010 and 2011.
It's a high priority of new coach Greg Schiano to get some production from that unit.
The Bucs have continued to rank near the bottom of the league in most defensive categories, especially those reflecting strength in the defensive...
1. Doug Martin, Buccaneers
Doug Martin is a strong, speedy back already wowing coaches and fans. His NFL build is similar to that of Ray Rice of the Ravens. Interestingly enough, Ray Rice went to Rutgers, where at the time the head coach was Greg Schiano, the Buccaneers current coach. I believe Schiano will look to use Martin and Legarrette Blount similarly to how he used Rice and...
Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams is apparently having a good training camp, including an improved work ethic, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Fantasy Spin:Offseason reports had Preston Parker challenging for the spot. Even an improved Williams may not get back to 2010 levels (65-964-11) due to the arrival of Vincent Jackson and a head coach who loves the running game.
TAMPA, Fla. In a funny way, Dan Orlovsky may boast the perfect resume as the new No. 2 quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Orlovsky was a backup on the woeful Detroit Lions club that became the NFLs first 0-16 team linking him, at least in...

WTSP-Channel 10 is broadcasting the game from Raymond James Stadium, with ex-Bucs safety John Lynch serving as analyst, but Tampa Bay fans will be unable to view...
Vincent Jackson's challenge with the Buccaneers seems formidable.
After signing a five-year deal worth more than $55 million, the 29-year-old Jackson comes in as Tampa Bay's No. 1 receiver - a role that has not been played with much success.
The Bucs (No. 26 in the AP Pro32) have brought in many veteran receivers to be their top guy - Alvin Harper, Keyshawn Johnson, Joey...
