Chris Owusu has shot at No. 2 receiver job
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith praised receiver Chris Owusu, who has a chance to replace Mike Williams as the team's No. 2 wideout.

"He has good size, excellent speed and I’ve been impressed with how he has caught the football," Smith said. "Again I don’t know a lot nor had any preconceived notions about the players, but he’s a guy that you do notice. I did see on his chart before we went on the field a 4.36 [40-yard dash] will get your attention a little bit.

"He’s running good routes, he’s caught the ball well and he’s done some good things. There’s an opportunity, if I’m a receiver I would be just really doing everything I could to show the coaches exactly what I have. This is a great chance to do that."

Owusu appeared in nine games last season, catching 13 passes for 114 yards.

Buccaneers must upgrade at receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers averaged a league-low 176.2 passing yards last season as the team got little receiving production behind Vincent Jackson. With Mike Williams limited to six games by a hamstring injury, Jackson drew 159 targets, more than twice as many as any other Buccaneer.

According to Fox Sports, Tampa Bay "needs more sustainable parts here to be a contender. ... Something must happen."

While Chris Owusu "could grow into a solid player," the website expects the team to be active in free agency, listing Jeremy Maclin, Hakeem Nicks, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Kenny Britt and Dexter McCluster as potential targets.
