Happy Father's Day from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sunday football is about as American as apple pie. It’s a time for many of us to kick up our feet, throw on our favorite jersey, and stuff our faces without guilt (mostly). But as entertaining as it is for us fans to watch, for the players on the field, it is more than just a game — it’s a way of life. We often forget that players are people, too, with lives and families off the field. An NFL season extracts a heavy toll on a player, but having a family waiting for them at home always...

Mike Evans in for His Best Fantasy Football Season Yet in 2019

Mike Evans has been a top wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since his rookie season. However, some fantasy football team owners are not sure where to draft him, due to his buyer beware feel he has to him at times. However, Evans had one of his most consistent years last season and has everything set up around him to build on that further in 2019.

This stat proves the Buccaneers are ready to burst onto the scene in 2019

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been an afterthought for much of the past decade. Even after drafting former Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston with the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the team has still been unable to get back to the postseason for the first time since 2007. But, for Buccaneers fans, it seems like this team has been a rumbling volcano just waiting to erupt, and with the addition of Bruce Arians this offseason to man the ship, 2019 may finally be the year the Bucs...

White and Dean signing soon?

In his latest mailbag, Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com said the team’s two remaining unsigned draft picks could ink their deals soon.

With Mike Edwards signing his first NFL contract Thursday, only two of the Buccaneers’ 2019 draft picks remain unsigned. The two guys who haven’t signed at this point are first-round pick Devin White and third-rounder Jamel Dean.

In his latest S.S. Mailbag on Buccaneers.com, Scott Smith seemed to hint that both guys will sign their deals soon:

Maybe Bruce Arians can help Jameis Winston with his golf game

The pairing of head coach Bruce Arians with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is one many fans are eager to see the results of. After all, Arians was brought in namely to help develop Winston into the franchise quarterback some people still think he can be. And even though the quarterback has struggled the past two years, he’s still shown promise. Plus, he’s already the franchise’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns with 88. Given Arians’ resume of success with...

For Jameis Winston, The Time Is Now

2019 will be a year of answers for Tampa Bay’s quarterback

Since the first time Bruce Arians addressed the media as the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers it’s been clear Jameis Winston was one of the reasons, if not the main reason he wanted to coach this team as he made his return to the sidelines.

After a 2018 season which began with a suspension and rode through the quarterback carousel between Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick, 2019 is the year of Jameis.

In fact, many people have...

Jameis Winston will throw for a career high 2019, but is that a good thing?

It seems that whenever you have trouble with a quarterback, you bring in Bruce Arians to try and fix things. The Buccaneers coach has had successful stops in both Arizona and Indianapolis as a head coach (interim basis in Indy), and spent many years as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach prior to that. Now in Tampa Bay, he’ll look to work his magic on Jameis Winston, who has yet to live up to his full potential. Given that this is the fifth and final year of his rookie deal,...

Buccaneers sign third-round pick Mike Edwards

The Buccaneers have signed third-round safety Mike Edwards to his rookie deal, according to a team announcement. Per the terms of his slot, the four-year pact should be worth $3.34M with an $822K signing bonus. Taken with the No. 99 overall pick, Edwards could be in line for a starting role at safety this year. Even if he doesn’t make the first-string squad, he figures to see a decent amount of playing time in the secondary. At Kentucky, Edwards proved his effectiveness at multiple...

All-Time Buccaneers Fantasy Draft

Locked On Bucs is choosing sides

If you took every player who wore the Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform and made a fantasy roster of just those players, what would it look like?

Of course, like most fantasy rosters, this question would be determined in part by how many participants were in the draft.

In this case, it’s two as James Yarcho and I were challenged to undertaking just such a task by one listener of the Locked On Bucs Podcast.

Mike Evans hopes to help Tampa kids go to college

Not only is Mike Evans arguably one of the best players that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have, he is also a role model off the field and does numerous things in the community.

As many know and as I know from graduating college this past year, college is an expensive four-year journey and every little dollar helps when trying to limit the loans you have when you are done.

Mike Evans knows that and he along with his wife Ashlie are donating $25,000 to The University of South Florida on behalf...
