Schiano Turns Back To Old FriendJuly 27th, 2013
No positions on the Bucs are more up in the air than those of punt returner and kick returner. They’re a true unknown.
Joe even had a chat with special teams coach Dave Wannstedt about this week, and Joe can assure readers there is no horse leading those races.
Because of that situation, the normally meaningless bottom-of-the-90-man-roster moves that happen during training camp got Joe’s attention this afternoon. Today the Bucs brought back undrafted free agent Mason Robinson, who was released in the spring. Robinson was a high school track star and had two major knee surgeries while he was a cornerback/returner at Rutgers (where else?), but he was healthy last season as a sixth-year senior.
Robinson’s returner stats do not look impressive, but you can’t count out anyone from Rutgers becoming a Buccaneer. Joe kept an eye on Robinson during spring practices, and the guy definitely has a lot of burst. Another obscure body to watch at tonight’s night practice.
