Buccaneers' Bernard Reedy: Signs with Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reedy agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Reedy is plenty familiar with Tampa Bay, as he saw action in nine games with the team during the 2017 campaign. If he makes the final roster, Reedy is unlikely to be much of a factor in the passing game, as the majority of his impact will instead come as a return specialist.

Buccaneers' William Gholston: Drops 15 pounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston recently told new defensive line coach Brentson Buckner that he is down 15 pounds this offseason, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran defensive end reported that he felt like he got "too big" last season, limiting his overall effectiveness. Gholston's numbers may bear that out, as he generated his fewest tackles (36) since his rookie 2013 campaign and failed to record a sack for the first time in his five-year career. The 26-year-old is slated to play more of a rotational defensive end role this season -- as opposed to serving as a clear-cut starter -- in the wake of the offseason signing of Vinny Curry.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Earns right to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken said Godwin has earned the right to be a starter, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The report notes that Monken likely is referring to three-wide formations, but it still would be a significant development given that Adam Humphries caught 116 of 165 passes for 1,253 yards -- 7.6 YPT, 70.3 percent catch rate -- while serving as the Bucs' primary slot receiver the past two years. With Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson returning as starters on the outside, Tampa Bay likely will want Evans and/or Godwin to become comfortable playing the slot in three-wide sets. It will be tough to find regular targets for everyone even if Humphries is pushed back to No. 4 on the depth chart, as the Bucs also want to feed tight ends Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard. A third-round pick last year, Godwin finished his rookie season with 525 yards at a clip of 9.5 per target, buoyed by 10 catches for 209 yards and a touchdown over the final two weeks (when Jackson was injured). Bucs general manager Jason Licht made comments similar to Monken's back in March, saying that Godwin has earned a bigger role for 2018.

Buccaneers' Thomas Sperbeck: Signs with Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas signed a contract with the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Sperbeck was with the Buccaneers last offseason as well, but ultimately reached an injury settlement with the team after being placed on injured reserve. This signing provides the wideout with another opportunity at making the final roster, but he should be considered a long shot to do so.
