Will Dirk Koetter help the Buccaneers offensive line?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive line was woeful last year. Football Outsiders ranked the Bucs' run blocking 32nd, stuffed ranking 32nd, and pass protection 29th overall. There are only 32 teams in the league. Maybe woeful was too kind of a description for the offensive line play. Granted, Tampa was working with a declining left guard in Logan Mankins, a turnstile in left tackle Anthony Collins, and  revolving right guards last year. To be fair, Mankins was acquired a week before regular season started via trade. Then factor in rookie QB coach Marcus Arroyo was thrust into limelight of...

All-NFC South Team highlights problem with Buccaneers' offensive line

NFL.com's Dave Dameshek published All-Division teams this week, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers saw five players make the All-NFC South team: Mike Evans, Demar Dotson, Logan Mankins, Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David. I don't think we really have to talk about four of those players, but Mankins' presence is a bit of a surprise given his mediocre performance last year. There are some rumblings about a renewed work ethic, but I'll believe he's back to being a quality player when I see it. The fact that Logan Mankins made the roster really says more about the competition in the division than...

Ten Teams Tried to Claim Former Patriots Tight End Tim Wright

In a surprise move, the Patriots cut one of their tight ends- it turns out ten teams wanted to sign him. Last week, the New England Patriots released tight end Tim Wright in a surprise roster move. Wright had been acquired from the Buccaneers, along with a 4th round pick that turned into defensive end Trey Flowers, in exchange for all time great guard Logan Mankins. Wright lasted just one season, but with such a deep roster of tight ends available, it wasn't overly likely that Wright was going to make the final cut. But with the long offseason ahead, it didn't really make sense to cut him...

Bucs get TE Tim Wright back off waivers from Patriots

Tim Wright, who shined with the Bucs as a rookie tight end in 2013 but was dealt away to the Patriots in the Logan Mankins trade in August, is back with Tampa Bay, which claimed him Friday after he was waived by New England.

Patriots Notebook: Tim Wright odd man out at tight end

FOXBORO — The Patriots cut ties with tight end Tim Wright much earlier than expected.Wright, who was acquired last August from the Buccaneers in the Logan Mankins trade, was cut yesterday before practice. The Rutgers product caught 26 passes for 259 yards and six touchdowns last season. It started to come together for him down the stretch in the regular season, but he was shut out in the playoffs.

The Patriots traded long time OL Logan Mankins to Tampa for 25 year old Tim Wright and a 4th round pick last year. All Wright did was catch touchdown passes for New England last year, catching six […]

2015 Patriots Camp Competition: Offensive Line

The Patriots head into camp with one of the deepest offensive lines in the league. Who makes the cut? Last season, the offensive line took a long time to find its perfect combination. The first four games of the year were a total disaster, as were the games where interior lineman Dan Connolly was injured and unavailable. While Captain Connolly wouldn't be confused for Logan Mankins, he brought the unit together for their most productive stretch. Connolly is not on the roster. He's not on any roster. Instead, the Patriots have (finally) addressed the interior line through the draft and will...

Jameis Winston runs gassers with the offensive linemen

Logan Mankins is being propped as the new leader of the team's offense, or at least their offensive line. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can't shut up about the way he's worked this offseason, supposedly resculpting his body and motivating the rest of the line to work harder and harder. Which is all well and good but, as noted before, won't matter one bit if Mankins can't actually play well on the field. One thing Mankins has been doing is pushing the linemen to run gassers after practice, and whenever they make mental mistakes. But the linemen don't run alone: their new, young quarterback has...
