Schiano Turns Back To Old Friend

July 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.

    Off Topic. Just moved to Lexington, North Carolina. Looking for someplace to go to see Bucs games. Anyone know who/where someone has the football package??

    You are 20-25 miles from Greensboro & Winston-Salem….you will have many, many choices there if you don’t find a place right in Lexington.
