Position Listing
Da'Quan Bowers
News
The Buccaneers' new coaching staff says it has high hopes for defensive end Da'Quan Bowers, but "it will be a bonus" if the team gets any meaningful contribution from him moving forward, reports ESPN.com. Bothered by a knee problem last season, Bowers had seven tackles and a sack in 13 games and was unable to hold a starting job.

Davin Joseph
News
The Buccaneers have waived guard Davin Joseph. The moves saves the team $6 million against the cap.

Joseph has been a full-time starter with Tampa Bay since arriving there in 2006, but a tendon tear in 2012 hindered his productivity and could limit interest in him in free agency.

Lavelle Hawkins
News
As expected, free agent receiver Lavelle Hawkins signed with the Buccaneers. Hawkins appeared in four games for the Chargers last season after spending five years with the Titans.

In 2011 Hawkins had his best season, catching 47 passes for 470 yards and a touchdown.

Lavonte David
News
New general manager Jason Licht thinks the Buccaneers' defense could jumpstart a quick turnaround in Tampa Bay.

“We have a lot of core players on this team that I am very excited about — (defensive tackle) Gerald McCoy, (linebacker) Lavonte David, (cornerback) Darrelle Revis and (safety) Dashon Goldson, just to name a few,'' Licht said, per the Tampa Tribune. “I don't think we're far away.''

The Bucs, who finished 4-12, ranked 17th in total yards allowed and 21st in points allowed in 2013. New head coach Lovie Smith is a respected defensive mind who should mold this unit into a force.

The Bucs, who finished 4-12, ranked 17th in total yards allowed and 21st in points allowed in 2013. New head coach Lovie Smith is a respected defensive mind who should mold this unit into a force.

Johnthan Banks
News
Buccaneers defensive back Johnthan Banks recorded his second interception in three games Sunday, in a 27-6 win over the Bills in Week 14. Banks picked off Bills quarterback EJ Manuel once, while adding three tackles.

Banks is having a solid rookie season, recording 43 tackles and three interceptions in his first 13 games.

Leonard Johnson
News
Buccaneers cornerback Leonard Johnson highlighted the fine defensive effort Sunday in Detroit with a 48-yard pick-six in the second quarter, but that was far from the extent of his contribution.

Johnson tied for second on his team with seven tackles and added two passes defensed in the upset victory.

Mason Foster
News
Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster had a solid game Sunday, in a Week 14 win over the Bills, 27-6. Foster matched the team high in tackles with nine -- seven solo -- and added one of the team's four interceptions.

Foster has 73 tackles and three interceptions on the season, two of which have come in the last three games. 

Patrick Omameh
News
Among the Buccaneers inactives for Week 16 against the Rams, three are sidelined as a result of injuries. Offensive lineman Carl Nicks (foot), defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers (knee) and defensive back Mark Barron (hamstring) headline the team's inactive list.

Additionally, linebacker Danny Lansanah, defensive lineman Matthew Masifilo , running back Lonnie Pryor and offensive lineman Patrick Omameh are all out of uniform Sunday.  

Carl Nicks
News
The Buccaneers are optimistic that guard Carl Nicks, who's been hampered by a toe problem, will participate in OTAs next month, reports ESPN.com. Nicks was limited to two games last year.

“He’s moving along pretty good,’’ general manager Jason Licht told the website. “So far, we’ve been pleased with his progression. He’s continuing the rehab and we’ll see where that goes.’’

Tampa Bay traded center/guard Jeremy Zuttah to the Ravens on Sunday, an indication the Bucs believe Nicks will be ready.

Mike Jenkins
News

He spent last season with the Raiders and had two interceptions and 65 total tackles with one fumble recovery.

Michael Smith
News
The Buccaneers waived wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, defensive end Ernest Owusu, quarterback Adam Weber and defensive end Markus White, and released wide receiver Derek Hagan, fullback Spencer Larsen and safety Troy Nolan.

Josh McCown
News
New Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown started throwing with his No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson on Friday. McCown said he came away impressed.

McCown said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's worked with some top-notch receivers in his career -- Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery -- and Jackson is "right there with those guys."

"I'm very, very impressed with him," McCown said. "You know when you have one of those special guys. You can tell the first time you work with him, you see it and feel it. That was the case throwing with Vincent. You can see why he's been so good for so long because of his work ethic and his attention to detail."

Mike James
News
Buccaneers running back Mike James is working his way back into football shape after breaking his left ankle last season. He told the Tampa Bay Times that he's been running and cutting and is aiming to get back to full strength and speed. Asked if he would be ready for the team's April minicamp, James said he and the team are "taking everything day by day." 
Injury
Ankle - Probable for start of training camp
Spencer Larsen
News
The Buccaneers announced Wednesday they re-signed fullback Spencer Larsen. The team also announced wide receiver Dan Buckner was signed to the practice squad.
Clinton McDonald
News
The Buccaneers will sign free agent defensive tackle Clinton McDonald to a four-year, $12 million deal, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. McDonald, 27, had 35 tackles, 5.5 sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery for the Seahawks last season.
Adrian Clayborn
News
The Buccaneers yielded 42 points to the Saints on Sunday, but defensive end Adrian Clayborn can't be blamed. He was arguably the defensive player of the game.

Clayborn led both teams with 10 tackles, including six solos, recorded Tampa's lone sack and added a game-high four TFLs. He even paced the Buccaneers with two quarterback hits.

Tom Crabtree
News
Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano confirmed Monday tight end Tom Crabtree will miss the rest of the season with a torn bicep. He will undergo surgery for the injury.
Skye Dawson
News
The Buccaneers' list of inactives for Week 13 at Carolina includes offensive lineman Carl Nicks (foot), wide receiver Skye Dawson, running back Lonnie Pryor, defensive back Bradley McDougald, offensive lineman Patrick Omameh, defensive lineman Derek Landri and defensive lineman Steven Means. Dawson, Pryor, McDougald, Omameh, Landri and Means are all healthy scratches.
Jace Daniels

Doug Martin
News
Doug Martin fans should expect the Bucs' third-year running back to stay on the field and in on the touches for the running backs just as much as before he got hurt. ESPN believes Martin will still be "the main ball carrier" for the Buccaneers, even if coach Lovie Smith says his team will use a rotation. Per the report, Mike James and Bobby Rainey will get worked in, but they'll only take enough work to keep Martin fresh compared to when Martin did almost everything with Greg Schiano as head coach. 

Over 22 career games Martin has 507 touches, or 23.05 per game. Knowing Smith's wishes to run the ball, it wouldn't be surprising to see Martin get that kind of work in weeks where the Bucs aren't getting blown out. There's no doubt he remains appealing as a Top 15 Fantasy running back worth a second-round pick. 

Injury
Shoulder - Probable for start of training camp
Kyle Adams
News
The Buccaneers have signed tight end Kyle Adams , according to FoxSports.

Adams will replace Tom Crabtree, who was lost with a biceps injury. Adams appeared in the Bears opener, but was waived shortly afterward.

News
The Buccaneers' list of inactives for Week 13 at Carolina includes offensive lineman Carl Nicks (foot), wide receiver Skye Dawson, running back Lonnie Pryor, defensive back Bradley McDougald, offensive lineman Patrick Omameh, defensive lineman Derek Landri and defensive lineman Steven Means. Dawson, Pryor, McDougald, Omameh, Landri and Means are all healthy scratches.
Chris Owusu
News
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.

Emmett Cleary
News
The Buccaneers signed receiver Tommy Streeter, quarterback Jordan Rodgers, defensive back Marc Anthony, offensive tackle Emmett Cleary, guard Jace Daniels, defensive tackle Everett Dawkins, defensive back Bobby Felder, guard Jason Foster, defensive tackle David Hunter, kicker Patrick Murray, long snapper Patrick Scales and punter Jacob Schum to reserve/futures contracts.

Mike Glennon
News
Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon, who thought he'd enter the offseason as the starter, is adjusting to the team's signing of Josh McCown as the presumptive No. 1 QB. "I understand the NFL is a business and at different times you may have to take different roles, but that's not going to stop me from competing," Glennon told the Tampa Bay Times.

Coach Lovie Smith spoke to the team Monday and said "the best players are going to play," Glennon added. "And I don't think that's any different for the quarterback position."

William Gholston
News
Rookie defensive end William Gholston is beginning to emerge defensively for the Buccaneers late in the season. Gholston totaled a career-high eight tackles (five solo) and two pass defenses during a 33-14 loss Week 15 vs. San Francisco.

Gholston has 15 tackles (eight solo), three pass defenses and 1 1/2 sacks in three December games after managing eight tackles (three solo), no sacks and no pass defenses in his first seven games.

Rian Lindell
News
The Buccaneers plan to replace kicker Rian Lindell with former kicker Connor Barth, reports FOX Sports.

Barth missed the 2013 season after suffering a torn Achilles in a charity basketball game in July. He was replaced by Lindell, who is a free agent this offseason.

Lindell was 23 of 29 on field goals in 2013 with 31 extra points. 

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim
News
Buccaneers defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and linebacker Dekoda Watson each recorded sacks on Sunday of Week 1 at the Jets.

Te'o-Nesheim and Watson took down quarterback Geno Smith in his first NFL start. Te'o-Nesheim finished with three tackles -- all solo -- and Watson had three as well with two being solo. Tampa Bay plays at home against the Saints Week 2.
Anthony Gaitor
News
The Buccaneers are once again trying to avoid depth concerns at cornerback. After finishing with the worst pass defense in the NFL in 2012, the Bucs have lost cornerback Anthony Gaitor (knee) for the season, cornerback Danny Gorrer (groin) could miss a month and Darrelle Revis (knee) is still uncertain for the opener.

Yet, coach Greg Schiano hasn't hit the panic button yet. While adding Revis in the offseason, the Bucs also signed veteran Mike Adams , drafted Johnathan Banks in the second round and signed undrafted rookie free agents Rashaan Melvin and Deveron Carr.

"We have enough right now, but if we lose any more it's going to get dicey," Schiano said. "Not dicey like last year dicey. That was really dicey. But that has actually put us in a better position now."

Demar Dotson
News
Buccaneers tackle Demar Dotson (back) is active for the Week 1 game against the Jets. Dotson was considered probable entering the game. 
Vincent Jackson
News
New Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown started throwing with his No. 1 receiver Vincent Jackson on Friday. McCown said he came away impressed.

McCown said in an interview with CBSSports.com that he's worked with some top-notch receivers in his career -- Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery -- and Jackson is "right there with those guys."

"I'm very, very impressed with him," McCown said. "You know when you have one of those special guys. You can tell the first time you work with him, you see it and feel it. That was the case throwing with Vincent. You can see why he's been so good for so long because of his work ethic and his attention to detail."

Derek Landri
News
The Buccaneers waived guard Gabe Carimi, quarterback Jordan Rodgers and running back Michael Hill and released defensive tackle Derek Landri. Carimi was a first-round pick by the Bears in 2011.

The moves saved the Bucs more than $2 million in cap room, according to Yahoo Sports.

D.J. Moore
News

Timothy Wright
News
Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright was a pleasant surprise for an undrafted rookie, catching 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns. But he's limited as a blocker and might not be the long-term answer for Tampa Bay, reports ESPN.com.

The website says the Bucs must upgrade at the position and "bring in an all-purpose tight end through the draft or free agency."

Anthony Collins
News

Bobby Rainey
News
New Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith plans to lean on running back Doug Martin this season, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Martin is expected to be 100 percent recovered from last year's shoulder injury.

At the running back position, there are enough reps to go along. We want three guys we feel comfortable with. Two will play, but it's not a rotation that where every series we're going to have a different guy in there."
