The best cornerback on the day was second-year player from the Titans Adoree’ Jackson. Jackson as playing the Bucs wide receivers tough all day long, and the clip above was just the first of a few of his interceptions on the day.
On a quick note, Bucs rookie running back Ronald Jones had a rough day. He had two fumbles on handoffs and didn’t really stand out much the rest of the day. But, it is tough to stand out when you’re a running back and contact is at a minimum. Hopefully we’ll see plenty of Jones in the game on Saturday.
#Bucs running their 2-minute (end-of-half) offense. WR DeSean Jackson not involved.
Another interesting note we had from today was that wide receiver DeSean Jackson was not involved in the team’s 1-minute drill at all. The team used wide receivers Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Adam Humphries and Freddie Maritno. But no Jackson.
#Bucs WR Mike Evans visibly upset with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick today. Fitz hasn’t been able to get him that fade route ball. Not enough air on the passes.
Titans cornerback Adoree’ Jackson had one heck of a bounce-back day on Thursday. In our notes, he recorded three interceptions, one of which being with one hand, and Jackson did a backflip after the play to celebrate.
He was the top player from either side on Thursday.
Finally, on a positive note as we wrap up the offensive recap, Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said that rookie running back Shaun Wilson has looked sharp in these past two practices. Wilson will get his first game action this week.
