  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Gets to quarterback in win

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted two solo tackles, including one sack, during the Buccaneers' 21-16 win over the Seahawks in Week 10.

    The second-year edge rusher was able to push his season total to 3.5 sacks -- just a half-sack away from tying the four he garnered in his 2021 rookie campaign -- with his second QB takedown in the last three contests. Tryon-Shoyinka logged over 40 snaps for the third straight game as well, but he's still posted three stops or less in all but the Week 2 contest versus the Saints (four tackles).

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Records sack in Week 8 loss

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, during the Buccaneers' 27-22 loss to the Ravens in Week 8.

    The second-year linebacker logged a solid 45 snaps and was able to record his second full sack of the campaign. Tryon-Shoyinka also tied his second-highest tackle total of the season in the loss, but his relatively modest production -- 18 tackles, 2.5 sacks -- despite an average of 44 snaps per contest mostly keeps him off the IDP radar.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Gets first full sack in Week 5

    Tryon-Shoyinka tallied two tackles (one solo), including one sack, during the Buccaneers' 21-15 win over the Falcons in Week 5.

    Tryon-Shoyinka came into the season with elevated expectations after recording four sacks alongside 29 tackles in a rotational role over 17 games as a rookie in 2021. While his start hasn't been poor statistically -- he's recorded 11 tackles overall when including his production against Atlanta -- his takedown of Marcus Mariota was his first full sack after being credited with a half-sack versus the Saints in Week 2.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Set for big Year 2 leap

    Tryon-Shoyinka is expected to hold down a starting job as a prototypical 3-4 defensive end/outside linebacker this season after filling a variety of roles as a rookie in 2021, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

    The 2021 first-round pick logged 536 snaps from scrimmage as a rookie while serving as an edge rusher, playing a three-technique spot and also dropping into coverage on occasion. Dix notes Tryon-Shoyinka will now be entrusted with a starting role following the team's decision to not re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul, and the athletic second-year pro has already been validating that trust early in camp by flashing the impressive pass-rushing skills that helped him record four sacks as a rookie.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Ties career high in tackles

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted four tackles (three solo) across 53 snaps in the Buccaneers' 28-24 win over the Jets in Week 17.

    The rookie drew another start for Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and turned in a markedly better performance than Week 16, when he was blanked across the stat sheet on 51 snaps versus the Panthers. Tryon-Shoyinka's tackle tally matched a career high just established Week 15 against the Saints, and he could be in for one more turn with the starters in the regular-season finale against Carolina.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Filling in for Pierre-Paul

    Tryon-Shoyinka is expected to start at outside linebacker Sunday against the Panthers with Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) ruled out ahead of the contest, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The last time he started in place of an injured Pierre-Paul in Week 4 against the Patriots, Tryon-Shoyinka stepped up and notched a pair of sacks. He probably can't be expected to replicate that performance, but the rookie first-round pick has shown enough promise as a pass rusher this season that the dropoff from Pierre-Paul to him shouldn't be too steep.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Records pair of sacks in win

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted two tackles -- both sacks -- and was credited with four quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 19-17 win over the Patriots on Sunday night.

    The rookie saw extended playing time again with Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) sidelined a second straight game, logging 50 snaps (85 percent) overall. Tryon-Shoyinka certainly found a way to make an impact with his pair of stops, with the two takedowns of Mac Jones serving as the first pair of sacks of the first-round pick's young career. Tryon-Shoyinka is projected to return to a rotational role if Pierre-Paul is healthy enough to face the Dolphins in Week 5, but the sack opportunities could continue to manifest fairly consistently if he's used primarily on passing downs.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Modest numbers in first start

    Tryon-Shoyinka drew the start in pace of Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) in the Week 3 loss to the Rams and posted two solo tackles and a defensed pass across 51 snaps.

    The rookie first-round pick ended up playing on 78 percent of the defensive snaps and logged another 10 on special teams, making it his busiest day as a pro yet. Tryon-Shoyinka has recorded a pair of tackles in each of his first three games, and with Pierre-Paul trending toward sitting out at least one more game, the 22-year-old is likely to draw a second straight start in the Week 4 showdown against the Patriots.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Set for first NFL start

    Tryon-Shoyinka will make his first career start Sunday against the Rams in place of the injured Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tampa Bay's rookie first-round pick will get his first starting opportunity after working as a reserve over the first two weeks. Tryon-Shoyinka racked up two tackles apiece in Weeks 1 and 2 while playing around a quarter of the Buccaneers' defensive snaps in each, but he's expected to play a significantly larger role for the duration of JPP's absence.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Already standing out

    Tryon (knee) has practiced without restrictions and looked explosive over the first three practices of training camp, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The rookie underwent minor arthroscopic surgery in the offseason but was ready to go from the first day of training camp. Tryon has already caught the attention of former college teammate Vita Vea, who lauded the linebacker's explosiveness and athleticism in Tuesday's session. In addition to his considerable physical skills, Tryon will have the advantage of expert tutelage from the likes of fellow linebackers Lavonte David, Devin White, Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul as he gets his NFL bearings.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Likely to log heavy preseason work

    Tryon (knee) is projected to log plenty of playing time in the preseason while auditioning to open the season as the primary rotational pass rusher off the bench, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The rookie will ideally show enough to garner and then hold on to that role, a development that would serve to help keep the likes of Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul fresher throughout the season. Tryon underwent what was termed a "minor" arthroscopic knee procedure earlier this offseason, but he should have a good chance to open training camp without limitations.
