Tampa Bay Buccaneers Franchise QB Series: 1986 Vinny Testaverde

For Vinny it was always a game of yards; in the end it was yards that separated the game- about 200 of them to be exact. It was a couple football fields that separated the beginning and ending of his career; it began in Tampa Stadium in 1987, and amazingly ended 20 years later taking a snap to seal the victory for the Carolina Panthers in Raymond James Stadium. For all the misery...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Series- Offensive Lineman- Paul Gruber

Do the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hit or miss with the first pick in the NFL Draft?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still on the clock. If the Buccaneers have learned anything from the past, the top pick in the NFL Draft is not always a good thing. It allows teams to choose the “best” player from college, however it also means in most cases you were the worst the NFL had to offer from the previous season. This is a position this team knows all too well. Judging...

The Hurricanes practiced for nearly three hours Saturday -- their third spring session, first in pads and first open to the media. Rush end Al-Quadin "Quan" Muhammad is back after missing last season and being suspended by the university -- and man, is he every large.

After lost 2014 season, a determined Muhammad back for Miami

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Al-Quadin Muhammad's 2014 football season never happened. He's ready to make up for that.

So this spring football season is a long-awaited return for Muhammad, who got...

Relax Bucs fans, a killer offense is only a few players away

Players like McDougald will be the free agent picks ups most like Bucs 2015 versions. Ten years ago, the Bucs were coming off of 2 consecutive losing season, leaving many to ponder if the game had gone past Jon Gruden; it was the first time a Super Bowl winner had two such losing years. But in 2005 with QB found in Brian Griese, the Bucs went into the season with an offense. Later...

Semifinals: Vote for the Sunshine State's greatest college quarterback

Who is the best quarterback to ever play for a Florida university? In a quarterfinal stunner, top-seeded Tim Tebow fell to eighth-seeded Daunte Culpepper as UCF fans -- and perhaps a few Tebow detractors -- came out strong for the former Golden Knights quarterback. But there is one Gators quarterback moving on as second-seeded Danny Wuerffel got by No. 7 seed Vinny Testaverde ...
