Looks Like The Bucs Will Have A FullbackAugust 28th, 2014
The fullback position has become a dinosaur in the NFL. Perhaps the Bucs should nickname Jorvorskie Lane “Stegosaurus.”
Lane seems an absolute lock for the 53-man roster.
Aside from appearing regularly with the first team in practice and in preseason games, Lane drew significant love from general manager Jason Licht during tonight’s game broadcast on WFLA-TV.
Licht was asked for preseason standouts, and he praised Lane and wide receiver Louis Murphy. He offered love for his scouting department for finding them, and Licht said Lane has developed into a “hammer.”
Interestingly, color analyst Ronde Barber talked about a conversation he had weeks ago with Licht about the roster. Barber said Licht was talking about keeping four tight ends or three tight ends and a fullback.
With Tim Wright traded away on Tuesday, it seems the decision is clear.
League rules mandate the 53-man roster must be in place by 4 o’clock Saturday.
