Offensive line as a "need" for the Buccaneers

Evan Silva published his yearly breakdown of every NFL team's top needs and free agents today. Most of the analysis is obvious: the Bucs need defensive backs and defensive ends, and could use some extra playmakers at wide receiver if at all possible. But the fourth need Silva names is a lot less obvious: offensive line. Offensive Line: LT Donovan Smith had a brutal rookie season on Jameis Winston's blind side and would probably be better suited for right tackle or guard. Washed-up RT Gosder Cherilus was similarly ineffective across from him. LG Logan Mankins, who turns 34 in March, is...

Buccaneers won't have a lot of cap casualties this year

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have quite a lot of cap space. They're set to spend nearly $113 million on their top 51 players, which is what counts during the offseason. It's not clear how high the 2016 NFL salary cap will be, but it was at $150 million last year and should be higher this year. That means they'll have at least $37 million in cap space, before re-signing anyone -- and it's likely to be closer to $50 million. That's quite a lot of cap space, and probably a big part of the reason why Pewter Report has reported that Alterraun Verner, Vincent Jackson and Logan Mankins (if he doesn't...

Pro Bowl 2016: Rosters, game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

The 2016 Pro Bowl happens tomorrow, when some of the best NFL players get to have fun for a generally uninspired but still somewhat entertaining game of football. I say some of the best, because there have been a record number of replacements this year. Still, that's a lot of talent on one football field. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have five players in this year's Pro Bowl. Doug Martin and Gerald McCoy were selected in the initial ballot, and are appearing in their second and fourth Pro Bowl respectively. Logan Mankins, Lavonte David and Jameis Winston were added as replacements for players...

Pro Bowl Rosters 2016: Buccaneers spread evenly

The 2016 NFL Pro Bowl happens this Sunday, and the rosters have been divided. For the third year in a row, the Pro Bowl teams are selected from all Pro Bowl players by two Hall of Famers -- this year, Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin. This is supposed to generate more interest, but I'm not exactly sure as to how that's going to happen. In any case, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so their players evenly divided between the two teams. Gerald McCoy, Doug Martin, Logan Mankins  joined Jerry Rice's team, while Lavonte David and Jameis Winston headed to Michael Irvin's team. Here are the full...

Tom Brady was hit A LOT and this is the state of the Patriots offensive line

Some stats services will say that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was hit 20 times. Others will say 23. The discrepancy doesn't really matter because the point holds: the offensive line was atrocious and, probably more than any other group on the roster, deserves the bulk of the blame for the ineffective offensive play. The offensive line seems to have been a focus of the Patriots since the Giants knocked New England out in the 2007 Super Bowl with an aggressive rush in the interior. The Patriots line of Matt Light, Logan Mankins, Dan Koppen, and Steve Neal (plus, generally,...

PFF thinks Buccaneers offensive line barely improved this year

Pro Football Focus came out with its year-end offensive line rankings today. Logan Mankins was the team's best lineman, while Donovan Smith -- at least according to the tape-graders over at Pro Football Focus. Despite the massive improvement compared to last year both in terms of productivity and apparent on-field play, the Bucs ranked just 23rd as a whole. It was always going to be hard for the Bucs’ starting two rookie linemen, and then losing their starting right tackle at the beginning of the year amplified the issues. All things considered, this could have been much worse, and...
