About Pewter Report

“You guys do a great job and always have detailed information. I appreciate the truth, the honesty and the passion you guys put into it. I know the research and work you guys put into it.” – Bucs head coach Raheem Morris

Pewter Report prides itself on being the most complete, comprehensive news source covering the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and delivering inside scoop on the team found nowhere else. If you want to be the first to read about breaking news on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the inside scoop on what is really going on with the Buccaneers, more in-depth Bucs coverage and unmatched Bucs draft reporting than other sources offer – you’ve come to the right place.

In its various forms throughout the years, Pewter Report (formerly Buccaneer magazine) has been an NFL-credential media outlet for over 20 years and an independent source of information on the Buccaneers, providing coverage that is fair and objective.

“I would like to congratulate Pewter Report on 20 years of covering the Buccaneers organization and I wish you continued success. I really like the honesty in the work and the fairness of the coverage.” – Bucs FS Tanard Jackson

With 800,000 unique visitors and 18 million page views per year, PewterReport.com has become the number one media destination for breaking Bucs news year-round. Publisher and beat writer Scott Reynolds has been covering the team since 1995 and has 15 years worth of reporting experience on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Charlie Campbell and Wolf Heard have experience covering the Buccaneers in both the Jon Gruden/Bruce Allen and Raheem Morris/Mark Dominik eras.

Pewter Report has worked hard to cultivate numerous contacts within the walls of One Buccaneer Place and throughout the league to give Bucs fans the news and analysis they crave. We are the only credentialed media outlet that is directly accessible to Bucs fans as Reynolds, Campbell and Wolf interact with fans and answer questions on our message boards and in chats and by taking phone calls in our radio appearances.

“You guys have been putting out quality work, so that’s why you’ve lasted that long. I appreciate the content that you guys have and the perspective that you give. Nobody is better.” – Bucs CB Ronde Barber

While over two-thirds of our Buccaneers content is free to the public, PewterReport.com does specialize in offering Tampa Bay fans inside info on the team and news and analysis found nowhere else. This information can be found in over 300 Pewter Insider stories and columns on PewterReport.com, including the Pewter Report digital magazine also found exclusively on PewterReport.com 10 times per year.

In 2009, Pewter Report lowered its annual subscription price from $39.99 to just $10 to make it affordable to ALL Bucs fans. As a Pewter Insider, you’ll also have access to ALL of the content on PewterReport.com for just 83 cents per month.

“I always knew you guys were after the right stuff. You guys were asking the right questions. You guys were always interested in the game of football. Unfortunately, part of the job of the media is to sell their publications and that doesn’t necessarily mean reporting news. I thank you guys and I wish you guys the best. You guys are real. You guys care. You guys know what you are saying.” – Former Bucs head coach Jon Gruden

Fans love PewterReport.com’s offseason Bucs coverage because of our emphasis on free agency and the NFL Draft. We routinely break the stories regarding free agent visits and signings and visits by potential draft picks. No other media outlet that covers the Buccaneers is as proficient as covering the draft and forecasting Tampa Bay draft picks PewterReport.com.

Pewter Report has accurately forecasted the drafting of current and former Buccaneers, such as DT Gerald McCoy (2010), WR Arrelious Benn (2010), WR Mike Williams (2010), QB Josh Freeman (2009), WR Dexter Jackson (2008), OL Jeremy Zuttah (2008), DT Dre` Moore (2008), QB Josh Johnson (2008), DE Gaines Adams (2007), LB Quincy Black (2007), WR Maurice Stovall (2006), CB Alan Zemaitis (2006), QB Bruce Gradkowski (2006), TE T.J.

“PewterReport.com is one the most comprehensive and authoritative sources for information on the Buccaneers. Its reporting staff provides material quickly and accurately. The coverage is always thorough and constantly updated." – Vic Carucci, NFL.com senior columnist

Pewter Report is active in the community, helping Florida Blood Services, Collect For A Cause, Big Cat Rescue and other worthwhile Tampa Bay area causes over the years. In 2010, Pewter Report joined the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce.

Throughout the years, Pewter Report has helped publicize Bucs players charity autograph appearances and has teamed with several Bucs, including DT Chris Hovan, MLB Barrett Ruud, RB Michael Pittman and P Josh Bidwell to support their charities through golf tournaments. With three successful golf tournaments from 2007-2009, Pewter Report was able to help raise over $64,000 for various charities.

“I’ve been here for years and no one covers the Bucs like Pewter Report does. We’ve had some great golf tournaments together and I’ve gotten to know the staff real well. Being in the National Football League, I can say that the staff at Pewter Report actually knows what they are talking about.” – Former Bucs DT Chris Hovan

Aside from their on-line, Pewter Report’s Reynolds, Campbell and Wolf also appear regularly on radio and TV. Over the years, Pewter Report editorial staffers have appeared frequently on NFL Network, ABC Action News (Tampa affiliate), Fox 13 (Tampa affiliate), 10 Connects (CBS Tampa affiliate), Bay News 9 and Bright House Sports Network, in addition to radio appearances on the Jim Rome Show, NFL Sirius Radio, WDAE 620 AM, 1010 AM CBS Sports Radio and other various local and national sports radio shows.
