I hung with Dirk Koetter for most of his talk with Tampa Bay media at the NFL coaches breakfast before sauntering off in search of additional Buc morsels. (more…)

“We Have Never Ever Told Our General Manager Who To Pick In The Draft”

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

“Jason, why would anyone try to hang Roberto Aguayo on my family?”

Remember that CBS report from insider Prickly Pete Prisco claiming it was Bucs “ownership who pushed the pick” of Roberto Aguayo?

Joe asked Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer about that today. (more…)

Anything To Dull The Pain

Friday, March 16th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

How would you like to be pushing Buc season tickets right now?

Those poor saps in the ticket office are trying to drum up support for a 5-11 club that barely made an early ripple in the free-agent pool.

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Buc fans asked for a few home runs. I asked for some doubles.

But as free agency headed into Day 2, One Buc Place has generated only a bunt single or two. A lot of talented players have been signed by competitors while Jason Licht goes shopping with a restricted credit card. (more…)
