Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson not asked for pay cut

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 12:07:11 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson was not asked to take a pay cut this season, despite a previous report that he had been asked to do so. Jackson is still expected to return this season.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, the Buccaneers are fully expected to draft Florida State QB Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick. Jackson's fantasy value took a hit last season with the breakout of Mike Evans, but he could be better off with a new face at quarterback, especially since he only scored twice in 2014.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson won't take cut?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 20:46:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson will not take a pay cut, according to a source, but Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com believes Jackson will be back with Tampa Bay in 2015 regardless.

Fantasy Tip: Poor quarterback play and the emergence of Mike Evans took a toll on Jackson's production last year, but he still managed 1,002 receiving yards. His two touchdowns left a lot to be desired, but Jackson could still be a WR3 this season, especially if the Buccaneers address their quarterback issue with the No. 1 pick.

Buccaneers | TB eyeing Jameis Winston at No. 1?

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 16:51:14 -0800

Florida State QB Jameis Winston could be top draft priority for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport said he hasn't talked to a single person who doesn't think Tampa Bay will take Winston with the first draft pick.

Fantasy Tip: There's still plenty of time for the Buccaneers to change their mind or for the winds of change to take over as far as rumors are concerned. If Winston is indeed drafted by Tampa Bay, he's still a risky starting fantasy option and should be considered a backup fantasy quarterback for the time being.

Buccaneers | Keeping Michael Johnson won't be cheap

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:37:53 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Michael Johnson is due $7 million of fully guaranteed money this offseason. Johnson could be traded, but other teams may not want to pay up for the veteran defensive end. If the Bucs want to keep Johnson, they'll need to pay an additional $7 million on top of the $7 million already guaranteed.

Buccaneers | Da'Quan Bowers unlikely to stay

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:28:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent DE Da'Quan Bowers has been a bust since being drafted in 2011, and he was in danger of being cut last summer. The current regime in Tampa has nothing invested in his future.

Buccaneers | Mason Foster not in team's plans?

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:27:37 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent LB Mason Foster is not expected to be re-signed by the team, because his questionable coverage skills aren't a good fit for head coach Lovie Smith's Cover 2 scheme on defense. Foster seems to be a much better fit with the Atlanta Falcons.

Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wants to play for TB

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 15:04:43 -0800

Florida State QB Jameis Winston said he would like to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and believes he has the trust of head coach Lovie Smith. "I think it would be a privilege to play in Tampa, period, with the Florida State fan base and everything I have been involved with in the state of Florida. Coach Smith speaking highly of me, that already lets me know I'm a part of their program," Winston said. "I already have a trust factor in with him, and now all I have to do is accept his trust and gain his trust to help him out."

Fantasy Tip: Winston looks like the top candidate to be selected first overall by the Buccaneers, but the draft is still three months away. Winston likely would compete with Mike Glennon for the starting job if he is picked by Tampa but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he won the job.

Buccaneers | Bucs interested in Jameis Winston

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 13:52:44 -0800

Florida State QB Jameis Winston is scheduled to meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the NFL Scouting Combine.

Fantasy Tip: Winston appears to be the leading candidate to be the Buccaneers' top pick in the draft unless something happens during the meeting or while the team evaluates him. Winston likely would compete for the starting job if he joins the Buccaneers but would not be more than No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season.

Buccaneers | Vincent Jackson remaining in Tampa

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:12:40 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson will return in 2015, according to general manager Jason Licht. Licht said he will meet with Jackson's agent during the NFL Combine this week, and he will likely request to restructure Jackson's $9.77 million salary.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is 32 with an uncertain situation at quarterback. His 70-1,002-2 season was his worst since 2010, and it's fair to assume he's on the decline. We're looking at him as a WR3 in fantasy.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon a franchise QB?

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:20:36 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has what it takes to develop into the team's franchise quarterback, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "Yeah, I think you can definitely say that Mike can be the quarterback that can play at a high level in this league," Smith said when asked if Glennon can be a franchise quarterback. "And I mean, we only have one quarterback on our roster. If you look at the comments I've made about him, yes, I think he can be that guy." General manager Jason Licht also expressed confidence in Glennon.

Fantasy Tip: The Bucs are likely covering themselves in case their No. 1 overall pick of a quarterback doesn't play out the way they want it to. Glennon still does have something left, however, if Tampa chooses to go that route. Either way, whoever the Bucs use as their starter to open the 2015 season won't be much more than a midrange QB2 with some upside.

Buccaneers | Lovie Smith likes Jameis Winston

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 09:18:36 -0800

Florida State QB Jameis Winston has a fan in Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith, and Smith said he wouldn't hesitate to draft him at No. 1 overall based on what he knows at the moment. Smith isn't worried about an allegation of sexual assault surrounding Winston. Smith also made it clear that the Bucs are considering Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with their first pick, too. Smith will meet with both quarterbacks for the first time this weekend at the NFL Scouting Combine, and the team will also hold private workouts with both of them.

Fantasy Tip: Winston is believed to fit a pro-style offense better than Marcus Mariota, so the Bucs are expected to lean that way. Regardless, either quarterbacks will be a rookie in a new system, which makes them a midrange QB2 at best in 2015.
