The battle at right guard is heating up.

The battle at right guard is heating up.

Coach Koetter has high praise for Evan Smith Every training camp has battles and the Buccaneers certainly have a few on both sides of the ball. Everyone has been talking about the competition at cornerback and wide receiver, but the right guard position has been flying under the radar a little bit. After the Buccaneers parted ways with J.R. Sweezy this offseason, a starting spot opened up. Tampa Bay has a couple options at right guard. The team can elect to go with Caleb Benenoch or Evan Smith. Smith did play right guard in the first game and the way the offensive line performed, it’s...

Dotson continues to progress as second preseason game approaches

Dotson continues to progress as second preseason game approaches

Dirk Koetter doesn’t commit to Dotson playing on Saturday. While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers first team offense performed exceptionally well during the teams first preseason game, they were missing a key piece. Starting right tackle Demar Dotson was held out as the team continues to ease him back into action from his off season knee injury. Dotson, when healthy, is arguably the teams best offensive lineman and will certainly be a huge factor this season for Tampa Bay. Head coach Dirk Koetter gave some positive news today on Dotson and assured everyone that the veteran’s injury was not...

Grimes’ return a welcomed sight at practice

The veteran corner made an impact early on at practice. Veteran cornerback Brent Grimes has missed considerable time at training camp due to an injury that also sidelined him for last Thursday’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. On Monday he returned to the practice fields at One Buc Place Where Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter was happy to have him back. “Well, we want Brent Grimes out there,’ said Koetter. “He’s our best cover guy, so it’s great to have Brent out there.” The 12-year cornerback missed some time last year and never missed a beat during the season....

Dirk Koetter comments on the fight at Monday’s practice

Rules have been set for Titans and Bucs practice. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be traveling to Nashville, Tennessee tomorrow as they prepare for their second preseason game. Before the game on Saturday, the Buccaneers and Titans will have two joint practices on Wednesday and Thursday. Joint practices can be really beneficial to teams in many different ways. Not only does it get the guys more fired up and create competition, but it also allows you to see how you stack up against another team and not just yourself. It allows the players on both sides to also see some different looks on a...

Koetter says Peyton Barber is the team’s No. 1 running back

Koetter says Peyton Barber is the team’s No. 1 running back

The third-year back currently has the edge over rookie Ronald Jones II. With the selection of Ronald Jones II in the second round of this year’s draft, it was clear that the Buccaneers were going to mix him into a one-two punch with third-year pro Peyton Barber. But what has seemed fairly unclear throughout the summer was which of the two would occupy the No. 1 spot. After Monday’s practice, head coach Dirk Koetter acknowledged that Barber currently occupies the starting role. From Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times: “Peyton is our starter,” Koetter said Monday. “We’re...
