Buccaneers | Team may receive phone calls about excess WRs

Mon, 21 Aug 2006 05:47:21 -0700

The St. Petersburg Times reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a plethora of wide receivers, and that likely will spark the interest of teams looking to add depth at the position. "Certain teams call you to see what you think about this, or you call them to see what they think," head coach Jon Gruden said. "That's part of your job. I don't want to start any speculation because that's all it is. But every team in this league engages in those conversations, trying to improve their football team." Midway through the preseason, it doesn't appear that the decisions at receiver have gotten any easier. "It will be a tough call for us," Gruden said. "I just hope all of it works out for all of these guys." WRs Edell Shepherd, David Boston and Paris Warren are reportedly on the roster bubble.

Buccaneers | Team has some cutting to do at wide receiver

Tue, 04 Jul 2006 08:54:30 -0700

Buccaneers.com reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently have 14 wide receivers on their roster. The team normally carries six wide receivers so they have some cutting to do if they are going to maintain six for the 2006 season. Clearly, WRs Joey Galloway and Michael Clayton are good bets to earn spots. WRs David Boston and Ike Hilliard are the most experienced of the rest. Three of the candidates as of late June are 2005 draftees, WRs Larry Brackins, Paris Warren and J.R. Russell, which means the Bucs are looking forward to taking another extended look at them. WR Edell Shepherd remains an intriguing receiver for the team. The rest of the wide receivers are free agent additions and first-year players.

Sun, 11 Jun 2006 10:39:47 -0700

Joanne Korth, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Edell Shepherd continues to replay last year's non-catch versus the Washington Redskins in the playoffs in his head and uses the play as a source of motivation for the upcoming campaign. "I only think about the last play," Shepherd said. "It's stuck in my head. I don't need to see it on tape. I know exactly what happened, and it's making me an angrier person on the field." "I can't wait to get back on the field and catch a touchdown to wipe that one away."

Buccaneers | Gruden complains about some controversial calls

Mon, 09 Jan 2006 18:25:57 -0800

Scott Reynolds, of PewterReport.com, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden discusses some of the controversial calls from the team's Wild Card loss, including WR Edell Shepherd's non-touchdown catch. On Shepherd's play, Gruden said, "I disagreed with the call. I challenged it. I feel that a touchdown reception is looked at differently than a regular reception in the regular field. I believe possession with two feet down is a touchdown, period." On the other controversial calls, Gruden said, "I thought (Washington linebacker LaVar) Arrington fumbled the ball back to us, but that was not challengeable because there was a quick whistle. I felt that (Washington Redskins linebacker Marcus Washington) was touched down – not just by one player, but by two players on his long return of a fumble (by Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Carnell Williams). I felt DL Simeon Rice's sack was a sack and was a fumble and was a touchdown. That was not a challengeable play because it was ruled incomplete. I made my case on the grass on Saturday night. But we didn't get those calls."

Tue, 05 Jul 2005 06:25:50 -0700

Frank Pastor, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Edell Shepherd (foot) is feeling healthy and ready to compete for a backup roster spot. "We felt that he had a lot of promise, and we think that right now," wide receivers coach Richard Mann said. "We're at a point now where he's getting back into the groove, because he hasn't played in a year and a half. What we've got to do now is get him back into game shape, and he's doing that." Shepherd has moved past the injury and is now one of 14 wide receivers that will be at training camp competing for roster spots. "My injury is no longer in my mind; it's all football now," Shepherd said. "It's all getting back to where I was last year so I can make the team. That's my only focus right now."
