Amidst all the buzz on how the Bucs’ new offensive pieces have looked in practice, not much has been said about how the team’s heralded defensive line has looked during training camp. However, Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians had some praise for the up-and-coming Vita Vea on Thursday, as the former first round pick enters his third NFL season.

“I think he’s having a hell of a camp,” Arians said. “He’s a load in the middle and he can run and chase. That [club] will come off. It’s just protective right now, [but] it will come off soon.”

Vea had surgery on his right hand early in the summer, which has caused him to begin camp with a massive club on his arm. The fact that he’s been impressive while wearing that thing is a pretty great sign that he’ll be ready to make serious noise when he’s able to use two functional hands again.

I can’t wait to see what new pass rushing moves he’s learned this year! He had the “hump” move, an arm over and a straight bull rush last year but not a lot else.

LOL) If he can add to those this year then watch out. I really liked the pick when we got him, although I’d have liked Derwin James too. I said to my Dad it’d be one of… Read more »

IDGABuc, I accidentally down voted you, my bad. Tried to vote up. I agree with you, I think Vea can be much more disruptive this season, and I think he will!

Offensive lines beware in 2020.

Glad to hear Vea is getting healthy. He’s a key player for the defense and 2020 run.

I’ll be honest though…I was hoping he would have the cast on a bit longer to club people with on game day. Not playing dirty, just extra “physical”.

Other guys have more stats, but Vea has some of the most enjoyable highlights on many sundays. watching him move around other giant dudes at will or just engulf a ballcarrier is sublime football

And to think there were some on this forum, who have since apparently disappeared, who called VV “a bust who was fat and out of shape”.
