The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made another cost-efficient signing Thursday, as the team agreed to terms with cornerback Sterling Moore, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The signing also marks the third former Dallas Cowboy to be brought on by the Bucs, joining defensive tackle Henry Melton and linebacker Bruce Carter. That can be attributed to the connection between Dallas defensive...
With the Draft just over the horizon, it’s time to take a detailed look at each team’s acquisitions and losses and gauge a plan of attack for how they should approach the first three rounds of this year’s draft. We’ll start with the lowly Tampa Bay Bucs and work our way all the way up to the Super Bowl Champs in New England. The Bucs kick off this year’s Plan of...
On a day that involved seismic trades, surprise retirements and, of course, huge contracts, the opening day of free agency had yet another surprising development: silence from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Over the past few years, the Bucs have developed a reputation for being big spenders, especially early on in the period. However, the only real news to come from Tampa on Tuesday was...

UPSET: To defeat an opponent that is considered more formidable. The Bucs will try to just that today in Pittsburgh as the Steelers are riding high coming off their Sunday night dismantling of NFC South leading Carolina Panthers.

With veterans reporting to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 2014 training camp tomorrow, one of the most solid positions on the depth chart, despite offseason changes, is at cornerback.
