Buccaneers' Noah Spence: Adds 35 pounds as offseason initative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spence, eager to add some weight following the end of last season, put on 35 pounds this offseason, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The recipe for the added pounds included devouring nine to 10 meals per day during the offseason. The body transformation is aimed at making Spence a more complete football player in which he can serve as a three-down defensive end rather than a pass rushing specialist. The first live action glimpse of a more complete Spence can be seen during Thursday's preseason game against Miami.

Buccaneers' Noah Spence: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Noah (shoulder) recently indicated that he's 100 percent healthy and his shoulder has regained full range of motion, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The beginning of Spence's professional career has been derailed by a reported four different shoulder dislocations. The 2016 second-rounder didn't need to miss a game after one such dislocation during his rookie year, but Spence experienced another in Week 2 of last season and was ultimately placed on injured reserve by late October after trying to play through the pain. In an effort to put this recurrence behind him, this past winter Spence opted to undergo a Latarjet procedure that is designed to treat recurring shoulder dislocations. The defensive end now can focus on carving out a role in the pass-rush rotation ahead of the 2018 campaign. With offseason acquisitions Jason Pierre-Paul and Vinny Curry being brought in as the likely starters, Spence will presumably begin the year in a backup role.

Buccaneers' Noah Spence: Injury could be long term
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spence's season-ending shoulder injury has been described by head coach Dirk Koetter as "long term," Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

In the same report, however, Laine relays that the Buccaneers are hopeful that the surgery Spence underwent in Colorado after being placed on season-ending injured reserve has corrected the problem. The second-year defensive end dislocated his shoulder a total of four times over a span of 12 months, with the first instance having come in Week 4 of his rookie 2016 campaign against the Broncos. Spence also underwent surgery on the shoulder last Jan. 11 to repair what was at the time a fully torn labrum suffered against the Panthers in the 2016 season finale. A first-round talent that slipped in the draft due to off-the-field concerns, Spence has flashed his pass-rushing acumen over his first 22 career games despite often playing hurt and in a part-time role, collecting 6.5 sacks. He'll look to be ready for the start of OTAs, with further updates on his condition expected as that time draws near.
