The 2021 NFL preseason is almost over for the Buccaneers. Their last preseason game is this Saturday against the Houston Texans. Earlier this week head coach Bruce Arians stated that the Buccaneers starters would play the entire first half against the Texans. Wednesday, we found out their will be a new face on the field for the first time.
Bruce Arians says rookie Robert Hainsey is good to go on Saturday. That will be the third-rounder’s preseason debut.

The Buccaneers selected Robert Hainsey out of Notre Dame in the 3rd round of this year’s draft. Hainsey has spent most of his time this offseason playing the center position. His versatility of being able to play nearly every position on the line is invaluable to the team.
