Interesting lineup. Black at MLB? Hopefully he can learn that position and be a decent backup there, lol.

I can only hope they are cross-training him to allow him to backup more than one spot.

Im hoping that he somehow turns into the LB we signed him to be. The power of Schiano I guess. Longshot though.

That would be a miracle. And cause a few on here to have a stroke. Both good things IMHO.

lol i know. Hey a man can dream.

I'm going to continue to hope that Buc's FO saying that Foster playing middle on or around March 15th, was more intended to posture with free agent linebackers. Hearing that Foster was outside today sounds about right.

With Black, the money has already been allocated, and not a single one of us would have turned it down, so let's move on to his play. He has all of the measure-ables. Although his recent play does not inspire much reason to be hopeful, the different approach of new coaching may make a big difference for Quincy's career. Plus, he is a year more mature, and if he works on his craft he should be better. Interesting to see what happens with Black / the guy who cannot be cut.

Did he say Barber at safety? If Barber makes that transition, he could probably play for another 4 years.

Hightower in RD 2

I think most people would be happy with that, but it's unlikely he'll be there.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

Yea theres lots of players who seem like "they wont be there". Do we know this or are we just keeping ourselves from dissappointment?

If that's true, it's didn't turn out too well.  The good FA MLB's have signed with other teams.

But I do like hearing that Foster was initially moved outside.  That's where he belongs.

Quincy has sucked for 5 years. A scheme/coach change isnt likely going to make a lick of difference.

Notre Dame FB Robert Hughes 5-foot-11, 245-pounds, spent time on the Bears practice squad after going undrafted in 2011

Former Rutgers S Ron Girault 5-foot-10, 204-pounds went undrafted in 2008, signed with the Chiefs - released then signed with the Jets played for Las Vegas Locomotives, of the United Football League in 2011

DT Landon Cohen played at Ohio 6-foot-3, 300-pounds after being drafted by the Lions in the seventh-round. He has played in 24 games, with five starts also spent time with the Patriots, Jaguars and Seahawks.

6-foot-4, 255 pounds played collegialityy at Duke as a DE Ayanga Okpokowuruk went undrafted in 2010 signed with the Browns also spent time on the Giants practice squad in 2010

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

There is no way Dequan Bowers will be there in the 2nd.




No way.

After making that attempt in FA, there was little to gain by coming out and saying "we've changed our minds"...  My guess.

The media only got 30 minutes to watch mini-camp, but Greg Schiano is a take-charge, no-nonsense, business-oriented, up-tempo coach.

Schiano yelled at the Bucs: "Football is a game of details and it starts here." He keeps stressing "details" - even during stretching. It was the most detailed stretching period I have ever seen in my 17 years covering the Bucs.

The Bucs had 5 try-out guys: RB Robert Hughes, S Ron Girault, DT Landon Cohen, DT Ayanga Okpokowuruk and FB/TE Richard Kay.

An interesting lineup on first-team defense ... Quincy Black at MLB with Mason Foster at OLB with Adam Hayward. Cody Grimm and Ronde Barber lining up at safety spots.

All of the big-name players were in attendance, including TE Kellen Winslow, DT Gerald McCoy, DT Brian Price, FS Cody Grimm, RB LeGarrette Blount and CB Aqib Talib.

Bucs DT EJ Wilson appears to be the only player in attendance not participating. He was on IR last year.

Kicker Connor Barth, the team's franchise player, was not at practice today.

Half of the media's 30-minute observation time consisted of the players stretching and doing warm-ups and another 5 minutes was spent doing special teams. We were not allowed to watch any offense vs. defense scrimmaging.

Stay tuned to PewterReport.com for more on Tuesday's mini-camp, which will be the only practice that is open to the media to view any parts of this week.

Thanks Scott!

I've felt like the Bucs liked the linebackers currently on the roster (and possibly what they project to draft) more than what was available in free agency. I don't think they think it's as big of a need spot as most of the fans do. My gut feeling has been that they like Quincy Black more as the player they think he will be in a different scheme, with different coaches and on a team that hasn't mailed it in than the Quincy Black you saw for much of last season.

That's only speculation, though. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Bucs starts Black, David, Foster and bring in bring in Hayward as a multi-purpose backup.

I think they think about the same about our LB corps as we do, and they plan on addressing it early in the draft.
