Sunday was the Bucs’ last official day of training camp, meaning that the media will be limited to viewing just the first 30 minutes of each practice and as such, this will be the last Winston Watch of this preseason.

The team had no live contact and the practice was run in just shells and helmets, not full pads, but it was still a very good day from the Tampa Bay’s starting quarterback.

Winston made his way through positional drills and started the team period off strong, a theme that continued throughout the day. During the team’s first 11-on-11 period Winston had a high, but certainly catchable ball, go off of Godwin’s hands and right to Emmanuel Smith. He also sailed one pass early that was then intercepted by John Battle, but that was really Winston’s lone hiccup on an otherwise great practice.

Winston seemed in sync with his targets throughout the entirety of the two hour practice, hitting his passes with precision and timing. His home run of the day came later on in practice when he connected on a vintage deep ball to Mike Evans and two plays later placed a pass perfectly to Breshad Perriman on a comeback route at the sideline, low where his defender had no shot at making a play on the ball.

It’s always tough to take anything major away from practice when players aren’t in full pads and contact is limited, unless you look as good as Winston did for the majority of today. The Bucs will return to practice on Monday as they prepare for their ever-important third preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Friday.

Always good to hear. Now is when the kinks hopefully start to get ironed out.

Can’t wait for this game. This isn’t the Browns of old, and we will get treated to almost 2 quarters of starting players facing off. Sure, it’s still preseason and the teams will take risks and install a limited game plan, but there will be quality matchups and questions answered. Go Bucs!!

Based on no contact helmets and shorts we can declare Bucs ready to take the division, Wonderful Wonderful practice.

Figures the Denver Broncos troll DumbAss would have something negative to say. I hope he washes his white sheets more often then his mom washes his underwear.

Really Excited for this Season! Looking forward to having a real Defense again. A lot of young guys and a new system but I still think it will be a way better D then we’ve seen in a long time. Excited to see a new Offense too! Looking to hopefully shock some teams this year. GO BUCS!!!

Good news about Winston. My last comment about 2 item. I don’t want to read anymore about Gerald McCoy or Buc-ass-bob.

I am wondering do we see a shakeup in the depth chart heading into pre season games 3 and 4? Or, is this a case of what you see is what you shall receive till cut down day?
