McCoy Impressed By Trevor Scott’s Hands

August 20th, 2013

The Buccaneers’ newest veteran defensive end already has impressed Gerald McCoy after one practice.

Trevor Scott, signed hours ago after three sacks with the Patriots last season, was in pads and in the mix today at One Buc Palace. Scott told Joe he had a tryout with the Bucs yesterday and signed on the dotted line.

During seven months as a free agent, Scott had other looks around the NFL and didn’t fatten up on the couch. Joe can attest that Scott looks to be in impressive shape.

“I’ve just been training every day, weight training, conditioning, that’s pretty much been my life,” Scott said.

Gerald McCoy said he got only a few looks at Scott today, but McCoy came away impressed.

“From the little bit I’ve seen, we do a drill where we work on our hand speed, and he has real quick hands,” McCoy said. “From what I’ve seen he’s pretty quick.”

Scott said he had no connection to the Bucs prior to signing other than his college bond with fellow University of Buffalo DE Steven Means, a Bucs rookie.

Scott likely will get a good bit of work against the Dolphins on Saturday, assuming the New Schiano Order likes what it sees in practice.

    And now the DE searches start….smdh! Bennett was available and we had him too….oh well, live and learn.

    I think we can get by with a “platoon” approach at DE, especially now that we have Goldson and Revis. I would not be surprised to see a lot more LB and Safety blitzes this year to make up for the lack of a stud DE.
