Any word on Justin Evans?? He sure showed lots of promise and I feel he would be great in our system.

Auclair robably replaces OT Haeg as that extra lineman on some downs. Gives the Bucs that extra option of either blocking or leaking out for a pass.

I am new to this board. But I am wondering why no one is calling for some help on left offensive tackle. I think his name is Donovan, #76? He constantly need double team help leaving the rest of the line short handed.
