Bucs cut DE Jacquies Smith; could Falcons be interested?

With Atlanta’s injuries on the defensive line, could the Falcons consider the talented pass rusher? There was a bit of interesting NFC South news yesterday when the Bucs made a somewhat...questionable roster move. As Auman says above, the 6’2, 260 lb DE Jacquies Smith was an excellent “diamond-in-the-rough” find by the Buccaneers in 2014. Smith had 6.5 sacks in only 7 starts for...

Jacquies Smith “not too far off” from returning to action

The Bucs defensive end participated in practice for the first time todya. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had Jacquies Smith practicing for the first time since September 2016 today—almost exactly one year since he tore his ACL in last year’s season opener.

Bucs have a premier pass rusher in the making

Two games in. Five tackles. Two forced fumbles. Four sacks. That’s the stat line for not an All-Pro defensive lineman, but for Bucs defensive end Jacquies Smith and he is well on his way to double digits sacks.  Smith’s play has been much needed.

The Bucs (1-1) rebounded from an embarrassing four-touchdown season-opening loss to Tennessee, with Smith keying a superb defensive effort that stifled Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in a 26-19 victory. A little...

Lovie Smith challenges his pass rush

The Bucs used to pride themselves on getting after the quarterback. But those days are long gone.  It has been a while since the Buccaneers have made noise in the opponents backfield on a consistent basis. In fact, you may have to go as far back as the Warren Sapp/Simeon Rice days. That doesn’t go over well with Tampa Bay head coach Lovie Smith who set a standard for the number...
