News

Spence started 14 games, recording 19 tackles and a sack.

Kadeem Edwards
News
With the 143rd pick, the Buccaneers have selected Tennessee State guard Kadeem Edwards .

Edwards started 34 games over the past three seasons. He's had some issues with his weight in college, so his conditioning will need to be monitored. 

Eric Page
News

He had four catches for 68 yards and two carries for 14 yards in 2013.

Mike Evans
News
Buccaneers rookie wide receiver Mike Evans got his first start Saturday night at home against the Dolphins in exhibition play, but didn't make his presence felt until Mike Glennon was under center.

Evans caught a short pass from Glennon, bounced off a tackler and took it 43 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Unfortunately for the rookie, he fumbled the ball before crossing the end zone, and had the touchdown overturned after a replay by the officials. He finished with two catches for 52 yards.
Jeremy Cain
News

Mike Kafka
News

James Ruffin
No Updates
Mike James
News
Buccaneers running back Mike James, who hurt his right shoulder against the Dolphins, is not expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday at Buffalo, reports the Tampa Bay Times. It's another blow to the team's depth at running back. Rookie Charles Sims will miss at least the first nine regular-season games with an ankle injury.

"I've got to be careful what I say right now," coach Lovie Smith told the paper, "but we're not in as good of shape as we were before."

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 3 of preseason
Austin Seferian-Jenkins
News
Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a second-round pick who could start, said his left foot is in good shape following February surgery for a stress fracture, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"I feel really good. My foot feels really good," he said. "I've been running routes, doing all the exercise and workout drills that they've asked me to do. I feel very comfortable and confident that I'll be ready to go when it comes to training camp."

The foot injury limited Seferian-Jenkins during the team's rookie minicamp. He missed OTAs and the mandatory minicamp because of the University of Washington's academic calendar.

"The only thing you can really do is try to learn the formations and concepts, the methodology of the offense, but there's nothing that substitutes for the hands-on experience of being out there running routes, and getting the timing down with the quarterbacks, the communication, all that stuff," he said. "There's definitely going to be a little bit of a learning curve, but that's to be expected when you're not there at all. It's nothing I can't overcome. I'm just going into it one day at a time and will be working really hard."

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
Former first-round pick Adrian Clayborn will not have the fifth-year option on his contract exercised by the Buccaneers, ProFootballTalk.com reports, but it doesn't mean the Bucs will cut or trade him. He is expected to play out this season in Tampa Bay before having his contract situation re-examined by the team.  
Quinton Pointer
News
The Rams ruled receiver Tavon Austin (ankle), guard Harvey Dahl, offensive tackle Mike Person, defensive end Sammy Brown, running back Daryl Richardson (thigh), cornerback Quinton Pointer and defensive tackle Matt Conrath inactive for the game at Seattle.
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.
Andrew Miller

Larry English
News
The Buccaneers announced Thursday they signed former first-round pick Larry English, who was released by the Chargers in late July. English totaled 91 tackles (62 solo) and 11 sacks in five seasons (52 games) with San Diego.
Jace Daniels
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.
Doug Martin
News
Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith referred to running back Doug Martin as the team's "bell cow," reports ESPN.com. Smith also praised Martin's improvement as a pass catcher, a role that will be critical given the serious ankle injury suffered by rookie running back Charles Sims.

"From watching practice, you've seen Doug has caught the ball a lot better," Smith told.

Martin caught 49 passes as a rookie. He said he put in extra work this preseason catching passes to prepare for Jeff Tedford's offense.

Kevin Pamphile
News
With the 149th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected offensive tackle Kevin Pamphile from Purdue.

Standing at 6-foot-5, 310 pounds, Pamphile worked out with the Bucs prior to the draft, so the selection makes sense, especially since Tampa Bay needed some interior offensive line depth. He has the size to play in the NFL, but still needs some room for improvement moving forward.
Steven Means
News
The following players will not suit up for the Buccaneers Saturday night against the Dolphins in preseason action: Da'Quan Bowers, Steven Means, Mike Jenkins, Alterraun Verner, Charles Sims and Damaso Munoz
Chris Owusu
News
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.

Evan Dietrich-Smith
News
Evan Dietrich-Smith and the Buccaneers have agreed to a four-year deal worth $14.25 million overall, NFL Network reported. Dietrich-Smith started every game for the Packers last season and will enter his sixth year in the pros in 2014. 
Mike Glennon
News
Mike Glennon worked behind Josh McCown again and didn't do anything to make the Buccaneers re-think their plan at quarterback.

Glennon relieved McCown in the second quarter and compiled 77 yards through the air while completing 6 of 12 passes. 43 of those 77 yards came on a short pass to Mike Evans. Evans bounced off a tackler and took it 43 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Unfortunately for Glennon, Evans fumbled the ball before crossing the end zone, and had the touchdown overturned after a replay by the officials.

Glennon was sacked twice and finished with a 70.5 passer rating.
Brandon Magee
News
The Buccaneers were but by the injury bug during Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins. The team had several players leave with injuries.

Running back Mike James left the game with a right shoulder injury in the third quarter. He finished 18 yards on three carries and did not return.

Defensive end William Gholston also suffered a shoulder injury and did not return. Defensive back Rashaan Melvin suffered an ankle injury was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Linebacker Brandon Magee was carted off with a right ankle injury and safety Major Wright exited with a back injury.

Sims was taken in the third round of the draft.

Jonathan Casillas
News
Strong side linebacker Jonathan Casillas has signed a one-year contract with the Buccaneers.

The 26-year-old Casillas, who hooked on with the team as a free agent before last season, played in 12 games and started four. He recorded 24 tackles, but lost time to a torn meniscus that required offseason surgery.

J.B. Shugarts
News
The Lions signed offensive tackle J.B. Shugarts, a 2012 undrafted free agent out of Ohio State who spent time with the Browns and Jets.
Alex Tanney
News
The Buccaneers signed quarterback Alex Tanney and three rookies: tight ends Cameron Brate and Ian Thompson and receiver Quinton Payton. Tanney, 26, was waived by the Browns last week.
Brandon Myers
News
Josh McCown had great success in 2013 with the Bears when he stepped in for the injured Jay Cutler in part because of his receiving corps with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He doesn't have that same talent with the Buccaneers, but he might not be far off following the NFL Draft. The Bucs drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans at No. 7 overall, and he will join Vincent Jackson as the starters in Tampa Bay.

Now, this doesn't elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.

The Bucs are going to be run-first with Doug Martin, but now they have a legitimate receiving corps, including quality tight ends in Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers.

In dynasty leagues, plan on drafting Evans with a first-round pick, and he will likely be selected in Round 8 or later in re-draft formats.

Mark Barron
News
Buccaneers safety Mark Barron revealed that he underwent right knee surgery in the offseason, ESPN reports Sunday.

Barron has been practicing, but is not 100 percent healthy from the procedure, per the report. The 24-year-old missed the final two games of the year in 2013 because of hamstring injury. He should be ready for the start of the season.
Kip Edwards
News
The Buccaneers signed cornerback Kip Edwards, who was most recently with the Vikings.
Euclid Cummings

Timothy Wright
News
Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said tight end Timothy Wright is "not playing as well as he should be playing," reports the Tampa Bay Times. "He's dropped some balls. If you've been watching him at practice, he's dropped balls. He's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside."

Wright is behind rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers.

Anthony Collins
News
Anthony Collins has picked the Buccaneers, reportedly over the Bengals and Panthers, as his new team. The offensive tackle has agreed to terms with them according to The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. 

ESPN reports the deal is good for five years and $30 million with $15 million guaranteed

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound behemoth out of Kansas started seven games for the Bengals last year. He has 25 career starts over six seasons.

Danny Lansanah
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.  

Bobby Rainey
News
The loss for at least half the season of promising Buccaneers rookie running back Charles Sims will likely result in more carries for Doug Martin. Sims had been considered a threat to take attempts away from Martin, who is coming off a disappointing, injury-plagued 2013 season.

Martin was deemed the featured back by Lovie Smith in June. The Sims injury could cement his status, though it could also result in increased work for fellow backs Bobby Rainey and Mike James. Both flashed last year in the absence of Martin. Rainey achieved two 100-yard performances before tailing off late while James rushed for 158 yards against Seattle, no less, and averaged a team-best 4.9 YPC on the season.
