Highlights Of Bucs OTA Practice

May 28th, 2024

Baker Mayfield rolls out during QB drills this morning at One Buc Palace.

The boys were back in the backyard of One Buc Palace as the heat ramped up this morning like it was July.

Below are highights of select plays from underwear football practice. Once again, underwear football is basically flag football with dudes wearing helmets. Hitting of any sort is verboten.

* Second-year receiver Rakim Jarrett pulls in a Baker Mayfield pass to the right.

* Rookie WR Jalen McMillan took a Mayfield handoff and ran right. Yes, you read that correctly.

* Chase Edmonds has a big gain to the left side on the ground.

* Second-year RB Sean Tucker takes a short pass from Kyle Trask near the left sideline.

* Tucker runs right.

* Rookie RB Bucky Irving pulls in a Trask pass on the right side.


* Mayfield tries for Jarrett on the right side and SirVocea Dennis nearly had a pick.

* Mayfield tries to hit Edmonds along the right seam with the ball squirting off his hands and Dennis scoops up the pass for a pick. Dennis seems to be repeating last year when he looked strong in underwear football but went into the witness protection program when the season began.

* Receivers are getting sloppy. Raleigh Webb (The Citadel) drops a pass from Trask.

* Webb bounces back to catch a Trask pass down the left seam.

* Irving hauls in a Trask pass down the right sideline.


* Edmonds with a nice run left.

* Chris Godwin pulls in a pass from Mayfield down the right sideline.

* Mayfield throws for Godwin over the middle as he comes in from the right side and Godwin tries a one-handed catch with his right hand but can’t quite pull it in.

* Second-year tight end Payne Durham sort of runs a down-and-slant outside from the left side and makes a fingertip catch of a Mayfield pass as he was headed to the left sideline.

* Trask throws to McMillan who gets behind coverage but the pass was a bit short. McMillan backpedals as he catches the ball along the right sideline and it appeared he was out of bounds. Still, nice concentration on an imperfect pass.

* Cade Otton grabs a Mayfield pass down the right seam.

    Go Bucs

  2. heyjude Says:

    Thank you for the highlights, Joe! Feeling good about McMillan and Bucky!

    “Dennis and the witness protection program.” Too funny!

  3. Dave Pear Says:

    Someone invite Kay Adams to broadcast her program from OBP.

  4. BillyBucco Says:

    Dennis obviously has the ball skills. Hopefully he doesn’t pull a Darden and actually contributes on game days.

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    Wasn’t Dennis injured a lot last year? Also as David’s backup, he hopefully doesn’t get much playing time. I’m not sure the Bucs want David and Dennis on the field at the same time. Anywho, I’d love to see a breakout season from him. That ILB depth chart is scary terrible behind David, and Dennis will have to show-up this year.

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    If we could get some significant help from these players this year….that would be fantastic.

    SVD, Durham, Irving, McMillan, Braswell

  7. go dawgs Says:

    Sounds like trasks last pass was similar to his indy performance? Sums up his career, just a bit short…

  8. Biff Barker Says:

    Much appreciated Joe!

  9. Oneilbuc Says:

    Joe is not going to tell everything he sees anymore because if Trask is playing better than Baker Mayfield people will ask why Baker can’t play better than a guy with no experience ? So who cares how the offense looks in training camp because it doesn’t matter how many picks Baker throws he’s the starter. I would rather hear how the defense is doing. And you know what’s funny if we would have had Matt Flin and Russell Wilson most of y’all on here would have rather Flin over Russell Wilson lol 🤣🤣. Matt Flin broke the Packers record the year before but the head coach said let best man play and that’s why the Seahawks won a Superbowl.

  10. SlyPirate Says:

    Super Bowl Champs sounds like a done deal

  11. Ryan Smith Says:

    Thank you for the Practice notes!!! Only 7 1/2 weeks till TC.

  12. Permanently Moderated Says:

    Once again, oneilbuc making stuff up that only occurs in his own mind.

  13. Dave Pear Says:

    Osqueel out with more Trashk conspiracy stuff. You must think Todd really sucks as a coach if he benches the better player even though his job is on the line for wins. LOL.

    I don’t think Todd is a good head coach but for plenty of other reasons. His character and integrity are his best attributes.

    Y’all must have been dropped on your head a lot as a yung’un.

  14. stpetebucfan Says:


    Sadly in a nation driven enough already by conspiracy theories you actually post this?

    “Joe is not going to tell everything he sees anymore because if Trask is playing better than Baker Mayfield people will ask why Baker can’t play better than a guy with no experience ?”

    What’s next ONeill? Jewish space lasers starting California wildfires? How about Reptilians: Some people believe that world leaders, particularly the political and financial elite, are actually disguised reptilian extraterrestrial beings secretly controlling the world?

    How about Elvis Presley is Alive: Despite his death in 1977, some believe that Elvis Presley faked his death and has been living in secret ever since.

    You need to watch out Oneill or some here…not me of course…but there are some here IMHO who might just question what the attraction if for you and Trask!

  15. Jeffs grandpa Says:

    Flynn and you’re a clown gaytor boi

  16. Crickett Baker Says:

    ty Joe.

    Todd Bowles is sure not perfect but you can’t call him a bad coach unless you are blind and deaf. He was the DC when we won a Super Bowl and 3 Division titles after that (HC). I think Pear lives in darkness.

  17. Dave Pear Says:

    Todd’s W/L record for the Jets?

    For the Bucs?


    His division has sucked. Two division titles because everyone else was just as bad or worse. He managed to lose with Tom Brady. Only time ever. He won a SB as a Coordinator. He was fine in that role.

    Maybe he’d be a decent HC if he would appoint a DC instead of trying to do both. Facts and reality screw things ip for the roses and sunshine crowd.

  18. PNW Buc Says:

    Thank you for your notes Joe!

  19. Oneilbuc Says:

    We have have a whole training camp from last year that proved Trask was better than Baker Mayfield in camp . But let’s be honest with a offense led by Baker Mayfield we ain’t winning or going to a Superbowl. The runningback the bucs drafted let me know they’re going to have Baker Mayfield throwing the ball 40 times a game which means a losing season. Dak can’t lead the cowboys to a super bowl he’s a much better quarterback than Baker Mayfield. This is the only fan base that thinks Baker is a elite quarterback and can lead a team to a Superbowl with his arm lol 🤣🤣!! But I can’t wait to hear all the excuses it’s a new offense, it’s the OC fault, it’s Bowles fault, it’s the offensive line fault and they can’t run the ball. Watch and see again you guys would have chosen Flynn over Russell Wilson lol 🤣🤣!!

  20. BakerFan Says:

    Oneilbuc Says:

    Why you so mad??? Man crush on Trask?

  21. SenileSenior Says:

    I don’t think Mayfield is elite. I do think he is a good QB by NFL standards.The Glazers, Licht, Boles and Coen apparently think so too.

    Go Bucs!!!

  22. Robbie Says:

    Underestimate him, that’ll be fun!!!

  23. Oneilbuc Says:

    Baker fan. I’m not mad about nothing I just know we ain’t going to no superbowl with Baker Mayfield leading the offense. The only way you can win with Baker Mayfield you must have a elite defense and a good running game and let Baker be a game manger. That means he throws the ball 35 times a game and maybe less . You can’t put the games in his hands because he will lose them more than he wins them.

  24. Buccos Says:

    Oneilbuc u r an idiot. Mayfield almost got us to the NFC Championship game after thrashing the Eagles with a crappy line and zero running game. Ask your mom if you can get a piggy bank and start saving for a ticket to a game

  25. Pablothepoolboy Says:

    Oh the humanity…

  26. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Oneil- “ The only way you can win with Baker Mayfield you must have a elite defense and a good running game and let Baker be a game manger”

    Brilliant – just a brilliant take!

    Same for 95% of the NFL teams.


  27. Oneilbuc Says:

    Buccos. Baker threw a pick and lost the game against the Lions on the second play of the drive. And everyone knows the Eagles had lost 6 straight games before we played them in the first round of the playoffs. Again to win with Baker he must be a game manger his career says the same thing. And the days of having the 02 bucs defense are over because you can’t play football like that anymore. Baker has to play better this year I’m not settling for meadicorey like most of y’all do.

  28. Oneilbuc Says:

    74. That’s not true go look at that the teams that are superbowl contenders look at their quarterback situations they are better than ours . You guys are celebrating a 9-8 season as if we went 11-6 or 12 -5 . We had the same record as the saints and Carr is their quarterback. We didn’t not dominate the division like they were supposed to. So it seems like you are a meadicore type guy !! 😂 I understand you now!!

  29. Oneilbuc Says:

    74 . Every quarterback that played in the playoffs on the NFC side had better quarterbacks . And don’t tell me nothing about Jalen Hurts being a bad quarterback because anyone in their right mind would rather have Hurts than Baker Mayfield. Golf is a better quarterback than Baker Mayfield. Dak is a better quarterback than Baker Mayfield and he chokes in the playoffs just like Baker does. Baker haven’t had 2 good seasons in a row yet.

  30. Dave Pear Says:

    Trask “proved” he was better? Osqueel how do you know this? And in a league so hyper-competitive (that means, like really a whole bunch of competitive), explain how a coach would knowingly decide to bench and restrict his best QB option? Why?

    No one expects a brain-injured conspiracist to answer. Consider it an academic exercise.

    If you really believe Todd is doing that, you should be first in line campaigning for him to be fired.

  31. Dave Pear Says:

    All of you peddling this Trashk conspiracy stuff – you should all en masse be clamoring for Todd to be fired. According to you, he is hurting the team by keeping his best player from playing .

    C’mon, imbecillin, you haven’t seen your boy suck so you want to believe he’s great and outplayed Baker, and you claim he did. Who said? You? Were you at practice with the coaches making the evaluations and getting paid to win?

    So why isn’t Todd playing him? Todd wants to be fired secretly?

  32. Oneilbuc Says:

    Dave Pear. Joe said it and not only him but other bucs meadi that was out there. And I know that’s the on going saying calling a player my boy because of the truth that goes against your boy Baker Mayfield. Again Baker has been a starter for 6 years and he still couldn’t out play a guy with no experience so what that tell you about Baker? Lol 🤣🤣 they had to gift him the starting job he definitely didn’t earn it. If Pete Carol was out HC Trask would have been the starter . But we have franchise that makes more business decision than football decisions. And that’s why right now the bucs are the most losing franchise in NFL history. And right now over the past 2 years the bucs are 17 -17 and people like you are satisfied with that lol 🤣🤣 that’s a Superbowl team in your eyes.

  33. garro Says:

    Wow the Troll Monkeys are out-posting Joe today and we are still in early OTAs. Guys!

    This is one of the few times I wish Joe had a mute button on his chat. And yeah… not naming names but…you and your masssive egos know who you are.

    Geez! Stop feeding the monkeys please.

    Thanks for the real football typing Joes!

    Go Bucs!

  34. garro Says:

    Was R White one of the guys sitting out or just not mentioned? Looked like everyone else got some touches.

    Go Bucs!

  35. Doc Says:

    @ Dave Pear

    You keep pretending that Trask did not outplay Mayfield when Joe – who unlike you was there – said so in TWO separate articles after training camp had ended:

    August 13, 2023 – “For Trask to get the QB1 gig, Joe believes, he had to out-practice/play Mayfield by a lot. He outplayed Mayfield a little in training camp.”

    August 15, 2023 – “Trask was out-practicing Mayfield. Not by a lot, but a little. Not enough to be knighted the Bucs starter if the two were competing based solely on their play.”

    These two articles are in JBF’s archives for all to see and read. I know you’re an FSU boi, but surely you can read, right?

  36. What it is Says:

    74 you sure have onei figured out

  37. What it is Says:

    Onei once again and once again you don’t have ANY proof of anything concerning Baker and Trask. You have lost it, if you ever had it. Give it a rest. Baker will stay the starter and he was close last year to going all the way. It was 7 points between the last 2 games. Baker can get the Bucs all the way. Just sit back and watch and spare everyone your vacuous comments.

  38. Oneilbuc Says:

    What it is. Baker threw a pick on the last drive to lose the game against the Lions. I get your a Baker fan and fans like you will never blame Baker Mayfield for nothing I get it. But almost don’t count . What about the last 2 games of the season he sucked against the saints and the Panthers. I see you one of those guys that say Baker had a good game when he played bad for 3 quarters and 12 minutes of the game. And when the other team plays prevent defense and Baker starts throwing a bunch of short passes to pad his stats you give him credit for the whole game ok I get you lol 🤣🤣!!

  39. TampabayDJ Says:

    O’Neil – You are a fake Bucs fan, first and foremost. You’re opinion doesn’t matter. You sound foolish, maybe even drunk, or both. Baker throwing picks ? Last time I checked, he was in the top 5 for not throwing picks ! He had almost a 3:1 TD to Int rating. Who cares about underwear football ? Go root for the AINTS ! You will fit right in with those delusional , out of their minds, crappiefans … Go Bucs and real Bucs fans. Excuse me, I need to go take a big O’Neil

  40. TampabayDJ Says:

    Brady made a HOF career out of 4th quarter comebacks and taking what the defense gave him. It’s called smart QB play ! Something Winston could never figure out. But you keep bashing the guy who took our Bucs to within a few plays of the NFC title game ! Oh, I think I need to go take another O’Neil. Listen for the flush

  41. Oneilbuc Says:

    Tampa DJ . How many 4th quarters come back Baker has ? The problem with you guys is y’all don’t like no one telling the real truth about the team. Baker Mayfield will never be a elite quarterback and he will never be as good as Brady was in his prime.

  42. Oneilbuc Says:

    Some of y’all go way to far about Baker Mayfield and his play on the field. Against the 49ers he should have had 5 picks and I’m talking about passes hitting defenders in the hands where they didn’t have to even try and make a play . I will always be a bucs fan but never a blind one like some of y’all are. This is not a superbowl team again if they make it to the NFC championship game that’s a good season for this team. But the only way to do that is you can’t put the game in Baker Mayfield hands because he can’t carry a offense at all and that’s a proven fact.
