  • Buccaneers' William Gholston: Tunes up for regular season

    Gholston recorded three tackles (one solo), including 1.5 sacks, in the Buccaneers' 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens on Saturday night.

    The reliable veteran got warmed up for his 11th regular season with his productive 11-snap cameo against Baltimore. The 2013 fourth-round pick failed to record a sack for the first time since 2017 last season, but his 49 tackles tied for the second-highest total of his career. Gholston projects to once again play a key rotational role on the defensive front this season, although he could officially slot into a backup role behind Logan Hall at right defensive end in the team's 3-4 alignment.

  • Buccaneers' William Gholston: Re-ups with Tampa Bay

    The Bucs re-signed Gholston to a one-year contract Monday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    A fourth-round pick by the Bucs in the 2013 Draft, 2023 will mark Gholston's 11th season with the franchise. He appeared in all 17 games last season, making nine starts, but he failed to record a sack for just the second time in his career. Gholston played 43 percent of the snaps in 2022 and will fill a rotational role along the defensive line in 2023, assuming he makes the team.

  • Buccaneers' William Gholston: Back with Buccaneers

    Gholston agreed to a one-year contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The 30-year-old will return for a 10th season in Tampa Bay after recording 36 tackles (21 solo) and 4.5 sacks in 17 games last season. Gholston hasn't missed a game since 2017 and should remain a key piece of the Bucs' defensive front next season.

  • Buccaneers' William Gholston: Unusual surge continues

    Gholston recorded three tackles (two solo), including 2.5 sacks, and was credited with three total quarterback hits during the Buccaneers' 32-6 win over the Panthers in Week 16.

    Gholston blasted through his previous career high of three sacks in remarkable fashion, posting the first multi-sack effort of his career. The veteran defensive lineman also has a pair of six-stop tallies in the last four games, rendering him an unlikely late-season IDP asset.

  • Buccaneers' William Gholston: Atypically high tackle total

    Gholston totaled six tackles (five solo), including one for loss, in the Buccaneers' 9-0 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.

    The veteran usually generates modest tackle totals, but Gholston now has accrued six stops in two of his last three contests. The 30-year-old is still off the radar in the overwhelming majority of IDP formats, however, as he usually offers minimal production outside of a handful of stops per contest.
