Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Special-teams pedigree could help land roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krause, who was signed by the Bucs on Sunday, could work his way onto the roster through his special-teams acumen, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The third-year receiver joins a crowded depth chart and does so right before camp, both factors which would typically make him a considerable long shot to garner a roster spot. However, with the Bucs also holding open auditions this season for the punt returner job, Krause could conceivably work his way onto the final 53 by locking down that role. He brings some college pedigree in that area, having logged 63 punt returns for Vanderbilt, two of them for touchdowns. In doing so, Krause become the first player at the school to accomplish the feat within the same season since 1968. Krause also has plenty to offer from scrimmage, notching 11 receptions for 89 yards in preseason with the Patriots last summer (while earning strong praise from head coach Bill Belichick), scoring a pair of touchdowns on end-arounds in his college career, and hauling in 42 passes for 714 yards and three scores in his senior season back in 2013. The speedster was on the Eagles' 53-man roster for the final six weeks of last season as well and dressed twice, logging two catches for 11 yards on 18 snaps.

Buccaneers' Louis Murphy: Brings size and experience to third receiver competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy's experience and size could be key in his battle for the slot receiver role in training camp, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The veteran receiver is expected to be ready to practice at the onset of training camp following his October 2015 ACL tear, and will jump into the midst of what should be the most hotly-contested position on the Bucs offense this summer. Murphy has played in the slot at various points in his career, with his most extensive tenure at that spot coming in 2012 with the Panthers. However, his 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame, normally a plus for receivers, may not be ideal for playing inside, and the Bucs could instead opt for the shiftiness that an Adam Humprhies or Donteea Dye would bring. The 29-year-old Murphy will need to hit the ground running come camp, considering the cast of thousands vying for the third receiver job.

Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Healthy heading into training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson's numbers show no appreciable decline on a per-game basis as he heads into his age-33 season, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The veteran wideout missed six games and parts of several others in 2015 with a pair of knee sprains, but is at full health entering training camp. Jackson's overall numbers last season were naturally muted due to the injuries, but his rates in two pertinent categories were right in line with his typical standards. The 33-year-old's 16.5 yards-per-catch was within striking distance of his career 17.0 number, while his 9.1 percent touchdowns-per-reception ratio came close to the 10.9 percent figure he'd generated in the 10 seasons prior to last year. Jackson enters training camp as the clear-cut No. 2 receiver opposite Mike Evans, and given Jameis Winston's expected leap in development in his sophomore campaign, the Northern Colorado product could be in for a resurgent campaign if his health remains intact.

Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Claimed by Buccaneers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krause has been claimed by the Buccaneers off waivers, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Krause played in just two games during the 2015 season. He grabbed two balls on four targets totaling 11 yards. He will try to earn a spot on the Eagles' roster during the preseason.
