The Bucs offense will stand or fall with the offensive line

There’s great potential at the skill positions, but the line could be a problem. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been widely praised for the work they did on offense this offseason, and rightly so: they signed DeSean Jackson, drafted O.J. Howard and Chris Godwin, added Jeremy McNichols and didn’t lose any big names. They’ll even get J.R. Sweezy back. That praise extends to Oliver Connolly of All22.com, who dived deep into the Bucs’ passing game and where it could go from here. Go give...

J.R. Sweezy is back at right guard, and looking good

Looks like the Bucs will finally get to see Sweezy play. When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed J.R. Sweezy to a five-year, $32.5 million contract, they envisioned him playing left guard opposite Ali Marpet, with Joe Hawley or Evan Smith at center. One year later, and things look very different. Ali Marpet has moved to center, Kevin Pamphile is at left guard because Sweezy missed all of last season with a lingering back injury and Sweezy...is now at right guard, according to the Tampa Bay...

All signs positive for Doug Martin’s future

The Bucs running back is back at practice and doing well.

Doug Martin is making his way back onto the field. The Tampa Bay Bucaneers running back had a disastrous 2016 season that ended with a four-game suspension, three of which will be served at the start of this season.

More worryingly, Martin entered rehab to deal with a drug problem—we still don’t know what that problem was, exactly, but it did lead to that four-game suspension.

All of that made Martin’s future with the Bucs...

The Chris Godwin hype is starting early for the Buccaneers

Godwin has been standing out in OTAs. OTAs have been pretty quiet for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—nothing groundbreaking, no big injuries, no massive disappointments. Other than Roberto Aguayo, maybe. So forgive me for indulging in a bit of premature fanboying: Chris Godwin has looked really, really good by all accounts. Roy Cummings of Florida Football Insiders called him “one of the real standouts”, Pewter Report gushed about him in their daily practice recaps, and even Bucs head...
