The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, formerly of the New York Jets to a one-year contract. What It Means: ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the deal is worth $3 million, assuming he beats out Ryan Griffin to be Jameis Winston's backup. Fitzpatrick wasn't putting up too much magic last season with 12 touchdowns and 17 picks in 14 games. He finished with a YPA of less than seven for the second year in a row in 2016. Fitzpatrick earned -0.01 Passing Net Expected Points per drop back in 2016, the seventh-worst rate among the 39 quarterbacks to drop...

6 NFL quarterbacks with the best chance to become elite in 2017

6 NFL quarterbacks with the best chance to become elite in 2017

Becoming elite is a goal of every QB. These six players have the best chance to reach that level in 2017. Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins: With another year in Adam Gase's system, Tannehill has a chance to be great next season. Dak Prescott, Cowboys: After a terrific rookie season, Prescott needs to keep developing into an all-around great QB. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers: Winston is a gunslinger, but if he can cut down on turnovers, he'll tiptoe on the line of elite. Marcus Mariota, Titans: Despite the leg injury, Mariota is set to make a big jump in 2017 with rookie Corey Davis. Matthew Stafford,...

Gerald McCoy, Jameis Winston make NFL Top 100 of 2017

Jameis Winston makes his debut on the annual list. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have at least two players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2017, as Gerald McCoy and Jameis Winston were revealed to be the no. 52 and no. 57 players on the list last night. This Top 100 list is voted on by active NFL players, though the process by which NFL Network actually chooses which players to interview and let vote is hardly transparent. The list is revealed in weekly ten-player increments, complete with short NFL Films vignettes on each player. This is McCoy’s fifth time on the list, having been the 92nd...

Jameis Winston is an aggressive quarterback, and that’s great

The Bucs shouldn’t try to coach that aggression out of him too much. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers want Jameis Winston to be more accurate and more focused on the details. That’s the message the team’s coaches had for him when they talked to the media on Thursday. “Everything from precision and accuracy,” quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian said. “That’s what we’ve emphasized, is making sure ball location is precise. But the timing of his release, his drop, mechanics obviously play a big part of that, his release mechanics play a big part of that. He’s worked on all of it and...

Watch Jameis Winston audition for a wide receiver spot

The Bucs quarterback may get another option here. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have plenty of receivers and only one good quarterback, but they may want to change things up a little after watching this ESPN clip of Jameis Winston skying over his girlfriend to catch a pass. Beatifully positioned, tracked the ball over his shoulder, caught it neatly and came down with both feet in bounds. And then a Mike Evans impression afterwards. What more could you want out of your receiver? In all seriousness: please do not line up Jameis Winston at receiver, Bucs. Please? He already takes dubious risks...

Ryan Fitzpatrick fixes the Buccaneers’ backup quarterback issues

The Bucs got their backup to Jameis Winston. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, which fixes their issues at backup quarterback. Fitzpatrick has been in the NFL for twelve seasons, having been the primary starter for the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans and New York Jets the past nine season (in that order). Fitzpatrick actually produced some pretty decent stats in that time, completing 59.7% of his passes for 25,888 yards, 166 touchdowns and 133 interceptions. That’s not dominant by any means, but it’s really good for a backup and...

Bucs have two of the best under-25 players

The future looks bright in Tampa. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a pretty balanced selection of young players and veterans, many of whom are also actually good. Which is why the Bucs have two players appearing on Pro Football Focus’ list of under-25 players. Those players are wide receiver Mike Evans and center/guard Ali Marpet, while quarterback Jameis Winston gets an honorable mention. Evans is one of the rare players to make the list with three full seasons under his belt before his 25th birthday. His three-year résumé speaks for itself, and in 2016, he not only was the most-targeted...

One analyst predicts the Buccaneers will make the playoffs

Playoffs are a realistic expectation, finally. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making the playoffs. That, at least, is what they will tell you. It’s also what NFL.com’s Adam Schein predicts will happen this year, though he’s been optimistic (and wrong) about the Bucs before. With Jackson, Howard and Chris Godwin joining Pro Bowler Mike Evans and the underrated Cameron Brate in the passing game, Jameis Winston will emerge as a legit star in Year 3. Nick Folk giving Roberto Aguayo competition will help focus and straighten out the kicking game for close contests. The defense is solid,...

A 2017 Buccaneers rookie could win Rookie of the Year

A 2017 Buccaneers rookie could win Rookie of the Year

Jeremy McNichols is the most likely candidate. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a pretty good draft class, is the general consensus, but does that mean they could get their first Rookie of the Year award since Cadillac Williams in 2005? Generally speaking, there are only two recognized Rookie of the Year awards, both voted on by the Associated Press: one for offense, and one for defense. Jameis Winston did win the fan-voted NFL.com Rookie of the Year award in 2015, but mostly, folks don’t really count those. This year, the Bucs could finally get one of them, though. And they have several...

Buccaneers expect big bounce back from Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers suspended running back Doug Martin is in line for a bounce back year, quarterback Jameis Winston expects. What It Means: "One name that’s going to shock… Doug Martin," Winston said. "He looks incredible. The way he’s bursting and just being so explosive. It really shows his resilience and how well he's prepared this offseason." This falls in line with comments from general manager Jason Licht. Martin was one of the biggest post-draft winners with the Bucs only adding Jeremy McNichols in the fifth round. Among the 42 running backs with at least 100...
