Buccaneers' Vernon Hargreaves: Improvement expected in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hargreaves (hamstring), who struggled with both injury and play last season, is expected by general manager Jason Licht to rebound in 2018, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

The 2016 first-round pick finished the season on injured reserve after hurting his hamstring in a Week 10 game against the Jets and never recovering sufficiently to even make it back on the practice field. It was a fittingly disappointing conclusion to a lackluster sophomore campaign for Hargreaves, who did not intercept a pass over the eight-plus games he participated in and was part of a secondary that allowed the fourth-highest completion percentage (67.6) over the course of the season. Hargreaves struggled early in the campaign while playing the outside and was beginning to transition to more nickel corner work before his injury. Licht emphasized that despite the corner's struggles last season, he's still viewed as aptly capable of bouncing back with the benefit of a clean bill of health in 2018, and that he remains valued for his on-field versatility. "The corners that can play both inside and outside, they come in handy, especially if they can play them both well," said Licht. "Vernon fits that definition of the guy that can do both. I had a lot of positive conversations with Vernon at the end of the year and I'm excited about where his mind is right now. I think he's going to have a pretty good year this year."

Buccaneers' Vernon Hargreaves: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers will place Hargreaves (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hargreaves has missed the Buccaneers' last five games with the right hamstring injury and wasn't progressing quickly enough for the team to be optimistic about his availability for the final two contests of 2017. A first-round pick out of Florida in 2016, Hargreaves hasn't lived up to expectations with just one interception in 25 career games. Hargreaves should enter the 2018 campaign at full strength, but he'll likely have to fight for a starting role in Tampa Bay.
