It’s great news for both Cappa and the Bucs, especially after Bruce Arians stated he was unsure as to whether or not the fourth-year offensive lineman would be ready for this week’s mandatory minicamp. But if you ask Cappa, he’s been good to go for a while.
“I’ve been good for a while,” Cappa told reporters via Zoom. “The good thing is, you can take it slow in the offseason and make sure you get it right, so I was able to do that.”
The Bucs offensive line was one of the league’s best in 2020 and Cappa’s development was a big reason why the unit was so effective. He didn’t allow a single sack through 16-and-a-half games.
A broken ankle against the Washington Football Team in the Wildcard round of the playoffs ended Cappa’s season early, so it’s easy to see why he was excited to be back on the practice field.
“It was great,” he said. “It was a lot of fun – fun to be back with everyone is the main thing. It was good to be out there. I felt good.”
