Bucs Sign Former Glennon SidekickAugust 21st, 2014
Lovie Smith, Jason Licht, Bucs scouts and Bucs fans are on high alert for any offensive linemen that can help Tampa Bay. Yes, that holds true for any position, but keeping it real, the Bucs have a serious need up front.
Today, the Bucs made a move to sign a guard. And that always deserves attention, given the state of the O-line.
The newest Buccaneers is R.J. Mattes, a former versatile standout at North Carolina State blocking for mighty Mike Glennon. Mattes wasn’t drafted but landed with the Patriots in 2013, and he managed to find a way to hang around before he got cut before this year’s training camp. He only played in preseason for New England last year.
No, Joe’s not expecting much from Mattes, but Joe will keep an eye out for him the third quarter on Saturday in Buffalo.
