Position Listing
Da'Quan Bowers
News
Buccaneers defensive tackle Da'Quan Bowers is not just nursing a groin strain, but now he must think about the warning of Lovie Smith that threatens his starting job.

"I think every day you don't practice, you're hurting your chances," Smith told the Tampa Tribune. "And we've seen enough to like Da'Quan a lot. But all the reps that he's not getting, someone else is getting them.

"The best way to beat your competition sometimes is just to stay on the field. You can't get Wally Pipp'd. Da'Quan is trying to get back, and again I think he has a future in the league, whether it be as a defensive end or a third-down rush-guy inside."

Bowers lost playing time and production in each of the last two years.

Andrew DePaola
News
The Buccaneers re-signed long-snapper Andrew DePaola and waived cornerback Anthony Gaitor, the team announced.
Lavonte David
News
Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David could blitz less under coach Lovie Smith's simpler defensive scheme, reports SportsTalkFlorida.com. David had 144 tackles, six sacks, five interceptions and two forced fumbles last year.

"It’s just giving me an opportunity to play faster, an opportunity to see the whole field and learn everything, learn what everybody is doing," David said of the new scheme. "It hasn’t changed nothing much. I’m still in the position where I can make plays."

David said he'll blitz "every here and there" and "every now and then."

Dashon Goldson
News
Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson, who's recovering from foot surgery, said he'll likely miss the rest of the offseason program but aims to return for training camp. "I think training camp will be a good timetable," he told ESPN.com. "Right now, I'm just relying on our training staff to get me back right."
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.

Injury
Back - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Carolina
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.

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.

Josh McCown
News

He added one touchdown and one interception, registering a passer rating of 90.6.

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. 

Marc Anthony
News
The Titans released cornerback Marc Anthony, receivers Julian Horton, Jaz Reynolds and Derel Walker, running back Waymon James, safety Hakeem Smith, offensive lineman Tyler Horn and defensive lineman Lanier Coleman.
Mike Evans
News
Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Evans "has grasped this pro offense much more quickly than some coaches thought he might coming from a rudimentary system at Texas A&M," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. In Saturday's preseason game against the Bills, Evans caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown after nearly scoring the week before.
Rishaw Johnson
News
The Chiefs have swapped guard Rishaw Johnson to the Buccaneers for safety Kelcie McCray.

The latter played in 15 games combined for Miami and Tampa Bay in 2013. He managed eight tackles and four assists a year ago. Johnson started one of the three games in which he participated for Kansas City in 2013.

Mike Kafka
News
The Buccaneers signed quarterback Mike Kafka, according to his agent. Kafka appeared in four games for the Eagles in 2011 and hasn't played since. He worked out for the Cowboys last week.
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 1 vs. Carolina
Austin Seferian-Jenkins
News
Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins only has four preseason catches, but in camp he "has made eye-popping plays with regularity," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. The 6-5, 262-pounder, however, remains behind Brandon Myers on the depth chart.
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.
Logan Mankins
News
The Patriots traded guard Logan Mankins to the Buccaneers for tight end Timothy Wright and a fourth-round draft pick in 2015, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
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.

Doug Martin
News
Buccaneers running back Doug Martin ran the ball hard and looked like his old self during Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

Martin scored from 1-yard out on the third drive of the game. He played the entire first half with the first unit and finished with 14 touches. He took 12 handoffs for 38 yards and a touchdwon on the ground, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. He caught both of his targets for 27 yards.
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.
Jeremiah Warren
News
The Browns cut defensive backs Royce Adams and T.J. Heath, offensive linemen Randall Harris, Ryan Lee and Jeremiah Warren, running back Edwin Baker, defensive lineman Cam Henderson, receivers Tim Smith, Jonathan Krause and Anthony Armstrong, linebackers Caleb McSurdy and Keith Pough, and tight end Martell Webb.
Steven Means
News

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.

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.

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.
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. 

Ronald Talley
News
The Cardinals declined to tender offers to four restricted free agents: tight end Jake Ballard, running back Alfonso Smith, linebacker Marcus Benard and defensive end Ronald Talley. All will become unrestricted free agents at 4 p.m. ET.
Michael Johnson
News
Free agent defensive end Robert Ayers will visit the Bengals on Tuesday, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Ayers had 5.5 sacks with the Broncos last season and is a potential replacement for Michael Johnson, who signed with the Buccaneers.
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.

"[H]e's done an excellent job as well, brings a lot of speed to the inside slot receiver," Tedford said of Herron per the official team website

A 5-foot-9 burner out of Wyoming, Herron totaled 2,030 yards and 20 touchdowns over four years in college. He'll compete for the slot role with the likes of Chris Owusu in camp this summer. 

Michael Koenen
