Bucs Add A Receiver

October 17th, 2019

Bobo Wilson’s replacement has been named.

Amara Darboh is the man, promoted from the Bucs’ practice squad today. Wilson was released two days ago.

Darboh, 25, is a former third-round pick (106th overall) by Seattle in 2017. The former University of Michigan standout has recorded eight receptions for 71 yards in his NFL career. He was cut by Seattle on Aug. 27 and has been on the Tampa Bay practice squad since Sept. 16.

He was injured last season, did not play and required surgery, though it seems there was little clarity offered on the actual injury.

Darboh did return a few punts at Michigan but not with the Seahawks.

Joe’s wondering whether Darboh will leap frog over buried Justin Watson on the receivers depth chart.

    A WR but no O-lineman. Wasn’t Licht an offensive lineman or an O-line coach or something? He must have really been a good one (sarcasm) if he likes what he is seeing from our line.

  2. Pewter power Says:

    Wow bobo has more receiving yards?

  3. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    You gotta love Jason Licht’s decisions

  4. Defense Rules Says:

    OLineman? Nah, we’re good. Pass rusher? Don’t be silly. CB? Of course not. Safety? Don’t be ridiculous. WR? Come on down Amara, we’re saving a spot for ya.

    You go Jason. No I mean it … please go.

    Wow!!! I’m shocked…no Scotty Miller reference.

    Yay! Another scrub!

    Watson had a case of the drops.

    our quarterback is not good enough that we can afford wide receivers dropping balls when he occasionally gets a pass to one.

  11. ITS ABOUT TIME !! Says:

    put f***ing the tights end on the field ….. Da !!!

  12. DooshLaRue Says:

    Licht better have a trade for P. Peterson lined up to have this make any sense.

  13. ElioT Says:

    Kid was born in Sierra Leone, parents killed when he was two years old.

    Moved to the US when he was seven.

    He must be mentally tough, can’t even image what he’s been through.

    Good luck Amara!

  14. nick Says:

    what a waste

  15. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    So who will be returning punts, thought no one on roster could do it? VH3 returned some at UF maybe he can earn his paycheck there

  16. Dewey Selmon Says:

    He is 6’2 215 lbs. Should have a bigger catch radius for Winston’s erratic throws. Him and Watson should be on the field before Scotty Miller.

  17. down in the dirt doug Says:

    Every day in Bucland is beginning to feel like the movie”FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH”. We have our own Jason to kill our season!!!!

  18. Oregonbucsfan Says:

    And, so after 6 games we realize that Boo Boo was not a good NFL player. BA couldn’t see that in pre-season? Any mid-season cut like this is a black mark on the coaching staff as well.
    Yeah, we’re in good hands.

  19. Hodad Says:

    I think we should use Bunting, and some of the other DB’s Licht keeps drafting as receivers. After all, Jameis seems to hit DB’s in stride more then he does WR’s!!

  20. Ship thief Says:

    No clue if he will work out here, but he was pretty darn good at Michigan

  21. Sharthappens Says:

    I hope he is tall so he can catch that jump ball

  22. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Shoot me now… We are going to lose the bye week.

  23. 813bucboi Says:

    this guy will certainly help the pass rush….lol…

    GO BUCS!!!!

  24. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Why does no one seem to mention the perfectly thrown pass JW threw to ME that went 60 yards in the air and hit Evans on the mitts and in stride? Catch that pass and score right before half and you may have a different game.

  25. DooshLaRue Says:


    Because overall …….. Jamies SUCKS!

    Mystery solved?

  26. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Know who you are and what you are Doosh. You should self disqualify due to your racist tendencies.

  27. Tampa Blues Says:

    WHAT ??? are you kidding me ? A wide receiver ? Why would you get a wide receiver when you don’t have a quarter back that can throw him the ball ? You should of have gotten a quarter back or better yet a running back or a safety because Hargreaves needs to go also. SHAKE MY HEAD.. A WIDE RECEIVER

  28. gambelero Says:

    The Pats worked Darboh and Schnell out on the same day–a few weeks back.

  29. July Joe Says:

    Ask Godwin and Mike “I drop 74 yard TDs” if they have a QB that can throw them the ball, or even the undrafted Harvard guy that Jameis got paid, Cam Brate … his receivers love him … only IDIOT Bucs fans don’t get it.

  30. Buc4evr Says:

    Good luck Amara, you are going to need it. Getting rid of Bobo wasn’t the answer. How about Jameis… what a great game. Getting rid of Bobo and ignoring the continued stupidity of Jameis… too funny.

  31. bibi Says:

    LMAO. Like this was a decision Light made all by his lonesome. You “fans” are clowns. This is who the coaches wanted.

  32. Mike Johnson Says:

    My man Jason L. Who will we salvage from the dumpsters of the NFL next?
    Another kicker?

  33. DooshLaRue Says:

    Doug Williams is my all-time favorite Buc’s QB.

    How can that be?

  34. DooshLaRue Says:

    I have tendencies……..

    I tend to hate idiots.

  35. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Can he play corner?

  36. Slugglife Says:


    Welcome to JBF. We needed another person to call us racists for being tired of finishing last in the NFC South every year. I think you’ll do good here.

    Us racists love Chris Godwin. The best white receiver on our team. At least you can give us racist a pass on that. Dipsht.

  37. Slugglife Says:

    If you get a chance introduce yourself to Haynes. You guys will be like brothers.

  38. Slugglife Says:

    We also have another poster here who gives everybody hell for referring to Luke Kuechly as the best linebacker in the NFL. Apparently we ride his nuts and only give him props because he’s white. Kind of like we tire of Jameis throwing 3+ picks a game just because he’s black. Has nothing to do with wanting our team to win though. Pure racism. Keep it coming bud.

  39. D1 Says:


    Pulling out the race card is today’s version of waiving a white flag, Surrender !

    Buts on second thought, a white flag is probably considered white supremacy or ultra nationalism and therefore racist.

  40. Slugglife Says:

    I hear ya. It’s just tiring. 90% of the team we cheer for is black and this dumb F calls us racists for criticizing our potentially $30 million dollar QB.

    Yeah- we have major issues with the play of our all black secondary too. I guess that makes us racist as well. I guess it’s time to just “shut up and watch and enjoy the16 games we’ve been gifted. Money we spend and season tickets be famed because were racists.”

  41. Slugglife Says:

    Damned- not famed.

  42. BigMacAttack Says:

    Did BF76 comment get deleted? I’m always late. Sorry I was gathering sheets and building crosses. I love Godwin too. I still think the talent and ability is here on defense, just can’t understand why they aren’t able to pull it together.

  43. Slugglife Says:


    Is that you N-Dog? Sure sounds like it. Still harping on a ME13 drop.

  44. BigMacAttack Says:

    With teams teeing off on our joke of an O line, why isn’t Lefty calling more screens? There’s numerous variants they can run. I don’t get it.

  45. Slugglife Says:

    Nah it’s still there. About 15 posts up. Another one of our “Bucs fans” calling other fans racists for not wanting to eat shtsicles. Another FSU homer for sure.

  46. BigMacAttack Says:

    Gotcha. Maybe my eyes are trained not to see his stupid comments. When Jameis is good he’s really good and when he’s bad, which is often, he’s horrible. It’s time to cut your losses and move on. You can only give him so many passes for the garbage O line. He throws interceptions when he’s not under pressure. His pocket presence is awful. He holds the ball too long. At times it’s like watching Pop Warner. Jameis needs to go.

  47. DB55 Says:

    He throws interceptions when he’s not under pressure.
    Post a play! Game, quarter and time. I want to see this. Prove it

  48. Bojim Says:

    Woo hoo!! Now that’s what I’m talkin bout!!

  49. lambchop Says:


    First throw of last week’s game. Before you say ME didn’t come back to the ball, Jameis stared him down the whole way.



  50. BrianBucs Says:

    Jason Licht Strikes Again!!!

  51. lambchop Says:


    First throw of last week’s game. Before you say ME didn’t come back to the ball, what about Jameis staring down ME? It was a rookie mistake.

    Also, Google Jameis Winston interception 2018 or Bengals 2018 game where he had 4 INTs without being under duress.

    I could dig deep and find more, but why? Jameis sucks. He’s a broken record. “I gotta fix it. It’s on me.”

  52. Buc1987 Says:

    lambchop…Okay dig deep…. besides last weeks game and the Bengals 2018.

  53. D1 Says:


    The proof you request.

    Also, it is so crystal clear that it eliminates any of the predictable excuses and blame reassignment that everyone has come to expect. Unfortunately, there’s no where to hide from the light of truth in the video referenced below. It is exactly what you say isn’t true.

    Youtube, Saints vs Bucs week 17 post game highlights.

    3 picks , all the time in the world ie. Zero pressure.

    Proof positive. Beyond question. Winston has thrown multiple picks in a single game with unbelievable protection. One play he had 10 seconds or an hour and threw a pick.

    Now on the other hand, Winston had imo the best and most impressive last minute drive I’ve seen to win a game. Top notch , put that drive up against any QB ever and its still impressive. This is a perfect example of both the highs and lows winston is capable of delivering. And He did both in a single game.

  54. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    All you people wanting Licht to sign Olinemen…any suggestions?

  55. TOM Says:

    How about Glenn from the Bengals. Wants out.

  56. DooshLaRue Says:


    Dug deep…. it was hard.

    Week 1 against SF this year.

  57. Losman Says:

    Why are you all surprised, this is one of the worst GMs in the league, yet we have to deal with this idiot for 5 more years

  58. BringBucsBack Says:

    “…sorry, I was gathering sheets and building crosses.”

    This gets my vote for JBF quote of the year.

    Rats continue to self identify…nice. Go Bucs!
