What player could the Buccaneers live without?

A very hypothetical look at life without the Bucs slot receiver. The goal of every football team is to get better every year. Sometimes that means firing and hiring a new coaching staff. Sometimes it means spending big in free agency, and sometimes it means promoting certain players from their depth chart and cutting others to maximize the talent on the field. The Buccaneers have done all of the above this offseason in an attempt to finally end their long, and I do mean long, 10-year playoff drought.

Did the Bucs overpay for Ryan Jensen?

Yes.....but it’s not as doom and gloom as it sounds First, let me say I was extremely happy when Ryan Jensen decided to sign with the Buccaneers instead of the Indianapolis Colts.

Ryan Jensen bringing physicality to Bucs practice

Jensen fitting right in with the rest of the Buccaneers offensive line. It was clear that the Buccaneers needed to get nastier along both the offensive and defensive lines this offseason. The team’s #1 target when free agency began was center Ryan Jensen, who previously played for the Baltimore Ravens. According to head coach Dirk Koetter, it seems as if Jensen is bringing exactly what the Buccaneers needed up to this point in terms of physicality. “You can tell that he’s a gritty player,” Koetter said. “That’s something that we were looking for in all the guys that we...
