Buccaneers | Looking for someone to step up in pass rush

Sun, 30 Jun 2013 19:24:56 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have failed to reach 30 sacks as a team in each of the past five seasons, and no Buccaneers player has recorded double-digit sacks since former DE Simeon Rice had 14 sacks in 2005. DE Michael Bennett had nine sacks last season to lead the team, and he left via free agency for the Seattle Seahawks. DE Da'Quan Bowers has added significant upper-body strength while getting into better shape, and he is one player the team needs to step up.

Buccaneers | Da'Quan Bowers entering key season

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 10:12:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Da'Quan Bowers has only recorded 4.5 sacks since he debuted in 2011. Head coach Greg Schiano said that he's banking on Bowers becoming an every-down option instead of a situational pass rusher. Bowers thinks that the way Schiano has drawn up the ways to use DT Gerald McCoy could draw significant attention, freeing up Bowers for more and better attempts at bringing down the opposing quarterback. The arrival of CB Darrelle Revis and FS Dashon Goldson should aid their coverage, which would translate to more time for Bowers to get into the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Bowers could find sleeper IDP value in leagues with favorable scoring of sacks. He's a depth piece for now. As for this squad, they fall just a bit short of every-week DT utility, but with their revamped secondary could change that quickly.

Wed, 08 May 2013 11:26:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Da'Quan Bowers knows he can do more on the football field, something he hopes to show in 2013. "It's not only injuries, but (my) play. I haven't been the dominant player that I know I can be," Bowers said. "I have a lot of potential to be one of the best and the elite at what (I) do, and I haven't shown that at this level yet. (It was) injuries and not understanding what was going on. It takes time to mature at this level. I think my maturation process is going on now and a lot of it has already passed. So, I'm just looking for an opportunity now."
