Kevin Ogletree’s Job To LoseMay 3rd, 2013
The signing of Dashon Goldson, the trade for Darrelle Revis, the drafting of Johnthan Banks all the drew cheers from Bucs fans, but Joe hears murmurs of grumbling from Bucs fans dissatisfied with the Bucs receivers.
Oh, sure they love Vincent Jackson and are fond of Mike Williams, but these same fans wanted something more dynamic from a slot receiver.
Per information Woody Cummings of The Tampa Tribune has, the job is virtually Kevin Ogletree’s unless he plays himself out of a job, Cummings writes in a TBO.com Bucs Q&A.
Q. Who do you see getting the nod at Slot WR day one?
– Ashton Clayton, Jacksonville
A. I think the Bucs are going to give Kevin Ogletree every chance to win that job. The Bucs know what Tiquan Underwood can do, and they’re fine with that, but I think they’d like to get a little more out of the position. My guess is that Ogletree gets the chance to prove he can provide more.

Sure, the Bucs would like see Ogletree grab the job and thrive, but there are other receivers. Yes, there’s Underwood and also free agent wide receiver Steve Smith from the Giants.
In other words, there is lots of competition for this gig, and that the way Greg Schiano likes it.
