Buccaneers | Earnest Graham could be third-down back

Sun, 31 Jul 2011 21:21:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers FB Earnest Graham is the front-runner to be the team's top backup to RB LeGarrette Blount this year. Graham could see less time at fullback as a result. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said he has a lot of confidence in Graham and trusts him. He said if the season were to start today, Graham would be the team's third-down back. RB Kregg Lumpkin is also in the mix, and the team could always decide to re-sign free-agent RB Cadillac Williams. "I know Earnest can handle the third down role. We'll see if Kregg can do that, too," Olson said.

Buccaneers | LeGarrette Blount has power approach

Wed, 29 Sep 2010 14:56:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB LeGarrette Blount's power approach at running back has reminded head coach Raheem Morris of former FB Mike Alstott, according to The Tampa Tribune's Roy Cummings. The team will likely be using Blount as their short-yardage and goal-line back in the future. "He's not declared," said Morris, who indicated on his weekly radio show on Monday that Blount would be the Bucs' new option in goal-line and short-yardage situations. "But he's definitely going to have a role (there) if he's not the back. He still has to go out there and compete with Earnest a little bit, but I'm sure Earnest Graham will gladly run up the sideline and tap him in if he keep giving us runs like that."

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 17:40:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris said free-agent RB Derrick Ward (Buccaneers) was not part of the team's long-term plans since RB Cadillac Williams is healthy and FB Earnest Graham will be a bigger part of the offense, report Wolf Heard and Charlie Campbell, of PewterReport.com. Morris said, "It's more about the resurgence of Mr. Cadillac, Mr. insurance Graham, where the team is heading and where we're going, our plan and direction, and how we want to go about our business. No decision is made lightly around here. It was just time to make it today." Morris added, "Right now, we have Cadillac who we are happy to have and also we have insurance Graham back there playing fullback for us and he is able to carry the ball as well. And also we have our little spark-plug in Huggy (RB Kareem Huggins) and he is able to come in and provide a different look for us and different turn around."
