TAMPA, Fla. Gray skies and a refreshing summer shower greeted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as they walked off the practice field Wednesday morning following another grueling training camp workout. It was a welcome relief from the stifling heat and humidity. And it had to feel especially good to cornerback Aqib Talib considering the heat of a different sort hed faced for more than a year, with the dark legal cloud hovering over his head. Last month, prosecutors in Texas decided to drop a felony weapons charge against Talib, stemming from a domestic dispute involving his sister and her boyfriend in March 2011.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Greg Schiano Runs Tight Ship

Greg Schiano has a plan. Whether or not it will work remains to be seen, but make no mistake about it -- he's has a plan. The only thing straighter than the crease in Schiano's khakis could be that marine-like jaw. That, or his approach towards people. Not just players or coaches, but people in general.  I recently had the pleasure of meeting coach Schiano, face to face...

Former Bronco Doug Martin Impressing Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It looks like we were correct in our analysis of Doug Martin.  Early into camp Martin is impressing the coaching staff and players. "He made some explosive runs (Sunday) where you really see why they drafted him so high," guard Davin Joseph said.
