Taking a look at arguably the biggest matchup of the Colts/Bucs game.

Before we get started....

I’m going to be referring to draft measureables and how NFL GMs, scouts, coaches, etc. apply said measureables to each position and what they mean. So, to keep things simple, I’ve plugged this combine chart that Gil Brandt tweeted out before the 2019 NFL Draft. Use this as a guide to better understand...

Bruce Arians passed on a question about Jameis Winston. Did it mean anything?

The time for Tampa Bay to make a big decision on quarterback Jameis Winston is fast approaching.

The Buccaneers are in the midst of a nice little two-game winning streak and they have a chance to make it three straight victories this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

But even if Tampa Bay wins out and finishes 9-7, playoffs are still a longshot. The final month of this season is more about evaluation, especially when it comes to...

Bruce Arians won't commit to Jameis Winston as Bucs QB beyond 2019

While Bruce Arians said in November that Jameis Winston had a “really good chance” of landing a Buccaneers extension if he played well down the stretch, the first-year Tampa Bay head coach will not fully commit to it. Asked Wednesday if Winston is in the franchise’s post-2019 plans, Arians said (via Jenna Laine of ESPN.com) he will push that response until the end of the season. Winston’s contract expires at season’s end. Tampa Bay’s front office has not made a decision on...

Shaq Barrett is reaping the rewards of an improving defense

The recent play of his defensive teammates has helped him regain his early-season form.

It’s not often you see a player take of like Shaquil Barrett did earlier in the year. I mean, nine sacks through the first four weeks of the season is crazy. That doesn’t happen often.

In fact, it has happened only twice since 1983, before Barrett came along.

It was pretty remarkable, but in the NFL, players...

As always, the numbers can help tell the story.

Tampa Bay won two games in a row after last week’s win over the Jaguars, which is something the team hasn’t been able to do all year.

A lot of the winning streak has been credited to the defense, and there’s plenty of reason why. The Bucs have looked much better on that side of the ball when it comes to multiple...

Buccaneers’ Chris Godwin in line for big pay raise in 2020

Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

Per Greg Auman of The Athletic

When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, fans were generally pleased with the selection. It’s likely most of them didn’t realize the impact he’d be making on the team at such an early point in his career.

In his first two seasons, Godwin caught 93 passes. He amassed 1,367 yards in that time and caught eight touchdowns. In 2019 alone, he’s...
