Tampa is so fired up and ready to go out and hit another team that they began pushing and shoving each other, during practice. Some called it a fight. I call it hunger. From the general speak around One Buc and how everyone on the defense has been talking about this year’s team, we should be in for a real treat. I haven’t seen this level of excitement in years. Last time I saw this amount of talent on a Buccaneers’ football team, we went 10-6. I’m hoping this will be the case for this year as well.
Here are your Tampa Bay Buccaneers projected starters for tonight’s preseason game. However, I would not expect to see all of them in, very long.
Offense: QB Jameis Winston. RB Doug Martin. LT Donovan Smith. LG Kevin Pamphile. C Joe Hawley. RG Ali Marpet. RT Demar Dotson. WR Mike Evans. WR Adam Humphries. TE Cameron Brate. TE Luke Stocker.
Defense: DE William Gholston. DT Gerald McCoy. DT Robert Ayers. DE Noah Spence. LB Lavonte David. LB Kwon Alexander. CB Brent Grimes. CB Alterraun Verner. NB(Nickleback) Jude Adjei- Barimah. S Chris Conte. S Bradley McDougald.
Notable players who may be out: Vincent Jackson(undisclosed non-football injury), J.R. Sweezy(P.U.P.), Charles Sims(Ankle twinge), and Louis Murphy (P.U.P.)
