BUCCANEERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Doug Martin, Robert Ayers likely to miss Buccaneers vs. Broncos

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will once again miss defensive end Robert Ayers, running back Doug Martin and tight end Luke Stocker, as well as backup wide receiver Cecil Shorts. All four players have missed two practices this week, which means they’ll almost certainly miss Sunday’s game against the Broncos. In slightly better news, the Bucs did get Joe Hawley back at practice the...

Bucs plan to have Jameis Winston throw less during games

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t in love with how much Jameis Winston has had to sling it to start the 2016 NFL season. Winston leads the NFL with 142 passing attempts through three games, a silly number considering he attempted 535 through 16 games as a rookie. A former pitcher with a strong arm or not, Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter isn’t a fan of the pace and wants to...

Dirk Koetter: We’re throwing the ball too much

Through the first three weeks of the season, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston leads the NFL with 142 pass attempts and has been throwing the ball more often than any first- or second-year quarterback other than Drew Bledsoe.

Buccaneers aspire to be like Broncos someday

TAMPA, Fla. -- After two losses, first-year Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter wants to change the culture of a team that hasn't won a playoff game in 13 years. He'll have a good model of what he's seeking on the other sideline when the defending Super Bowl champions come to Raymond James Stadium. "When I'm talking about the culture ... I'm talking about the 53 players, the...

Bucs Slinging It Around Too Much, Koetter Says

At the current rate, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is set to decimate single-season franchise records. Team stats related to passing are primed to be surpassed: yards, touchdowns, attempts, completions, all of them. Normally that would seem like a positive. But not quite. That’s because the Bucs are putting themselves in situations where Winston has to pass his...

Noah Spence has been a disappointment so far

Noah Spence was supposed to give the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ pass rush a significant boost this season. The second-round rookie was very impressive on his college tape, and seemed to have all or at least most of the skills needed to transition to the NFL. So far, though, he has all of one sack (which was almost entirely caused by Gerald McCoy) and very little pressure outside of...

Struggling Buccaneers defense yielding points in bunches

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Gerald McCoy stared straight ahead in disbelief. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have allowed a NFL-high 101 points during a 1-2 start, and the four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle's at a loss to explain why. `That's a concern. It's not good,'' the seventh-year pro responded. ''Defensively, we don't worry about what the offense does. But regardless of what they do, if...

PewterReport.com’s Most Impressive: Buccaneers vs. Rams

Bucs fans probably aren’t interested in reading about the “Most Impressive” after a deflating game on Sunday, but there were a few silver linings in the 37-32 loss against Los Angeles. With solid pass protection – and incredible stamina – from the O-Line, Jameis Winston was able to throw for over 400 yards on 32 completions. What’s more, two WRs hit 100 yards and the...

Bucs OL Dotson: Team got too cocky after Week 1 praise

After a strong performance in their opening game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a trendy upset pick for their trip to Arizona. Instead, they got obliterated, and one of their players thinks it’s because they let the praise go to their heads. “I think we just put too much into a win,” offensive lineman Demar Dotson said, via JoeBucsFan. “You know, we had a lot of people praising...

Winston talks return to baseball

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston isn’t returning to baseball anytime soon—the team slapped a no-baseball clause into his contract for a reason. Such a clause hasn’t stopped the sophomore quarterback from talking about it, though. Winston was asked this week on "The Dan Patrick Show" if ruling out a return to baseball seemed the right thing right now. The answer...

Buccaneers QB coach praises Jameis Winston’s leadership

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t know exactly what they were getting when they selected Jameis Winston first overall back in 2015. Sure the team knew that the quarterback could ball out on the field. That was never really a question. The larger issue was his off-field exploits. A crab-leg incident. A sexual assault allegation. An immature on-campus attitude that cost him his reputation...
