    I hope this is the beginning of a great season for the Bucs – it’s been a while! During practices, I often only have a number to try and identify a player. As usual, I’ve got lots of free time so while waiting for the draft, I thought I would organize the Bucs roster by position and player in alphabetical order. The Bucs currently have 74 players – assume 7 more or less will be added in the draft which means they may add another 9 UDFAs or cuts from other teams to get to the NFL 90 roster limit. Hope the organized roster helps! Lol.

    FYI! In addition to the current roster the Bucs have two tryout players attending the mini-camp. OT Nate Chandler is 26 and played extensively with Panthers in 2012-14 with 19 starts. OT Brandon Mosley is 27 and played guard with the Giants in 2013-14. If they’re signed, the roster goes to 76.

      I too maintain a positional roster, but I don’t include height, weight and college.

        I find it easy to look up players and just see who’s there. Looks like a lot of work but it’s not. I just take the Bucs roster as printed and do a keyword sort then list. Once done it’s easy to maintain. Cuts are the easiest. lol.

    Spring is in the air. There are high hopes for all 32 teams. Draft bullspit is at its usual all time high. Just work hard, give maximum effort, be accountable, work together and everything else should take care of itself. There is no I in team and if the players believe in themselves and the team concept being installed success will be considerably easier. I am excited like everyone else and hope that Licht has another good draft. It would be incredible to land both Bosa and Spence.OMG.

    Hey, wtf happened to us building an indoor practice facility???? The Glazerbaums were Gung ho about doing it and then not another word. I think it’s critical for them to do so, we lose alot of practice time during TC due to rain and players cramping up. Maybe PR can ask somebody sometime???
