  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Solid but unspectacular season

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded 45 tackles (28 solo), including 5.0 sacks, a pass defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery across 17 regular-season games in 2023. He added four stops (two solo) in two postseason contests.

    The 2021 first-round pick did set new personal bests in tackles and sacks while forcing and recording the first turnovers of his career. However, Tryon-Shoyinka still struggled with consistency in terms of getting to the quarterback, recording only two sacks after Week 6 despite remaining healthy throughout the campaign. Tryon-Shoyinka also posted four or fewer tackles in 18 of 19 total games, and he saw third-round rookie YaYa Diaby outperform him and eventually take over the starting left outside linebacker role. Tryon-Shoyinka has one year remaining on his rookie contract, and considering his experience in Todd Bowles' defensive system, he should play a solid rotational role, at minimum, in 2024.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Tallies third sack in Week 6 loss

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded four tackles (three solo), including a sack, and also defensed a pass in the Buccaneers' 20-6 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

    Tryon-Shoyinka snapped a two-game sackless streak with a second-quarter takedown of Jared Goff. Tryon-Shoyinka's four tackles also tied a season high, but the third-year linebacker is yet to truly live up to his pedigree as a 2021 first-round pick despite Todd Bowles' aggressive scheme setting its linebackers up for plenty of pass-rushing opportunities.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Pair of sacks in Week 2 win

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted four tackles, including two sacks, and logged an additional quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 27-17 win over the Bears on Sunday.

    The third-year edge rusher recorded the second multi-sack game of his career, with the first having come way back in Week 4 of his rookie 2021 campaign. Tryon-Shoyinka has struggled to fully live up to his first-round pedigree over his first pair of seasons, but he was expected to take a big step forward in 2023 after an impressive training camp. While his momentum didn't carry over into the regular-season opener -- Tryon-Shoyinka posted just two total tackles in that win over the Vikings -- perhaps his effort against the Bears will serve as a launch pad for a surge in production.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Showing off edge-rushing skills

    Tryon-Shoyinka stood out in Monday's pass-rush drills, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

    The 2021 first-round pick has amassed four sacks apiece in each of his first two seasons, but the Buccaneers are banking on a significant step forward from the edge-rushing linebacker in 2023. Tryon-Shoyinka offered reason for optimism in that regard Monday, with Dix noting the Washington product put on a nifty inside-outside move that gave him a free path to a sack. Tryon-Shoyinka has continued to hone in on his technique throughout the offseason and continues to display excellent burst off the edge, traits that could lead to career-best numbers in 2023.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Ups production in second season

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted 40 tackles (23 solo), including four sacks, and defensed two passes across 17 games during the 2022 regular season.

    The 2021 first-round pick also tallied two tackles (one solo) in 41 snaps during the wild-card loss to the Cowboys. Tryon-Shoyinka played a career-high 806 snaps on defense during the regular season, which led to him boosting his rookie-season tackle total by 11 stops and matching his 2021 sack tally as well. Tryon-Shoyinka could be in line for an even larger role next season if Lavonte David departs via free agency.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Career outing Sunday

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded seven solo tackles during Sunday's 30-24 victory versus Carolina.

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded a career high in tackles while also logging more than four stops for the first time this season Week 17. The second-year linebacker opened the season in a rotational role at edge rusher, though he has now played all but one defensive snap with Genard Avery (abdomen) and Shaquil Barrett (Achilles) both on IR over the past three weeks. With the NFC South now officially locked up, it's possible Tryon-Shoyinka could play decreased snaps if Tampa Bay decides to rest some starters Week 18 against Atlanta.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Good to go Sunday

    Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Tryon-Shoyinka will be available to start at linebacker in Sunday's contest versus Cincinnati, after he dealt with a hip issue throughout the week. With both Carl Nassib (pectoral) and Genard Avery (abdomen) ruled out this weekend, the 2021 first-rounder will likely be called upon to handle more snaps than this usual workload.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Iffy for Sunday

    Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tryon-Shoyinka submitted a full practice Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday due to a hip injury he sustained in Tampa Bay's Week 14 blowout loss to the 49ers. However, he's still considered questionable for Week 15. The second-year pass rusher has yet to miss a game this season, totaling 25 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one pass defense.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tryon-Shoyinka sustained a hip injury during the team's Week 14 blowout loss to the 49ers and didn't return. His participation at practice, albeit in a limited fashion, Wednesday is encouraging, but he'll likely have to log at least one full session to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

  • 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.
