12/18/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may not have the best record in the league, but they are still hanging in the NFC South division. Currently sitting at second place with a 6-7 record, the Buccaneers are fighting for their life during each and every game. On December 13, the Buccaneers took on the New Orleans Saints who happen to be one of the worst teams in the league this year. The Saints outscored the Buccaneers in the first half 17-10, and the Florida team didn’t seem to have it in them to fight back during the last two quarters. See if they can recover from the tough loss when they face off against the Chicago Bears after Christmas.
12/11/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came back from behind to beat the Falcons 23-19 on December 6. The Buccaneers led early, ending the first quarter ahead 7-0.

With just 1:39 remaining on the clock, Jameis Winston passed for 6 yards to Mike Evans for their game-winning touchdown. Lavonte David helped the Bucs to win by intercepting a pass in the Falcons' final possession. In total, Winston threw for 227 yards, including one touchdown, and completed 18 of 27 passes.

12/4/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were on a roll with their 45 point away victory against the Philadelphia Eagles last week, but they have suffered a loss more recently to break their streak. The Buccaneers travelled to Indianapolis to face the Colts, but after a poor second half, the final score came to 12-25. This means they move down one position and are now one win behind the Atlanta Falcons. It is a close race, however, and the Buccaneers still have three home games. Be sure to secure your tickets for December 6th match against the Falcons. This will likely be the game to decide who will end up in the lead, so you will not want to miss it.
11/27/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just earn what is likely their strongest victory of the season, and it was on an away field no less. The Buccaneers travelled to Philadelphia to face the Eagles, and they came away with nearly three times as many points. The final score was 45-17. This ties up the Buccaneers’ season record with five wins and five losses. They have one more away game upcoming, but then they will return to Tampa Bay to finish up their home matches this year. Be sure to secure your place in the stands to cheer the Buccaneers to their next victory. It all starts on December 6th when they host the Atlanta Falcons.
11/20/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently in the middle of a long series of away games, but they are coming back for back-to-back home matches starting on December 6th when they host the Atlanta Falcons. Tickets are available starting at $33. Then, just one week later, they host the New Orleans Saints on the 13th. Tickets start at $26. After these two matches, the Buccaneers will only have one remaining home game of the season, so be sure to catch them live while you still can. The Buccaneers currently maintain the number 3 position in the NFC Southern Division with a record of 4-5, but do not count the Buccaneers out quite yet.
11/13/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are one of the NFL teams who have had some games this month that have come down to the wire. The last three games have ended within a few points, and not always in the favor of the Buccaneers. On November 15, the Buccaneers were unable to score any touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys until the last seconds of the game. Jameis Winston, the Buccaneers quarterback, snuck in a 1-yard touchdown with 54 seconds remaining to win the game 10-6. Buy tickets today for the Buccaneers upcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 22. This is a perfect way to spend your weekend before the big holiday week.
11/6/15 - Two wins in their last three outings have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers feeling a little better about this season. The loss in that three-game span came by a single point, on the road in Washington, but the Bucs followed it up with a 23-20 win over the Falcons in Week 8. The young team will look to climb back up to the .500 mark with a victory this weekend over Eli Manning and the Giants. The veteran QB went off for six touchdown passes against New Orleans, so Jameis Winston and company will definitely have their hands full. Pick up your tickets for Raymond James Stadium today starting at $114!
10/30/15 - It seemed like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had regained their momentum after their last victory, but they immediately took a break. They are back this week, but they didn’t have quite enough to pull out a victory when they faced the Washington Redskins on October 25th. The Buccaneers started out with a strong lead, and even managed to go into the half 17 points ahead. Unfortunately, they fell behind in the final quarter and ended the game 30-31. Fans are still hopeful that the Buccaneers have what it takes to hold their own after that slim single-point loss. One more away match remains until the Buccaneers return to their home field on November 8th.
10/23/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were able to get some extra rest after their victory over the Jaguars, since they had a bye this week. Only three players sat out of practice this week due to injury: Logan Mankins, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Bruce Carter. Five players had limited practice, and Luke Stocker and Johnthan Banks both fully participated in practice. Fans who miss their players can catch former Buccaneer Ronde Barber on the Fox television show Bones when he guest starts on the 22. The Buccaneers will head to Maryland to play the Washington Redskins on October 25. You can still get your tickets for as little as $16 to see the game in person.
10/16/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are back. Fans were disappointed to see them lose their first game back on their own field, but they certainly were not disappointed at October 11th’s match against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They managed to score three more points in each of the first two quarters, and finished strong with a final score of 31-38. Hopefully this win will allow the Buccaneers to hit the road with a little momentum behind them. They will be traveling to Washington and Atlanta, but they will return on November 8th to host the New York Giants. Tickets are available starting at $116. Secure your spot in the stands while you still can.
10/9/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have suffered another loss, and hopes that their losing streak would end once they returned to their home field are diminishing. They have one more opportunity to turn things around before heading out on the road again. The Buccaneers will be hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars on October 11th. Once that match is done, they will not be back in Tampa Bay through the rest of October, so be sure to get your tickets and come out to cheer them to victory. Tickets start as low as $27. If the Buccaneers want to start dominating on the field again, they are going to need all the support they can get from their fans.
10/2/15 - After a thrilling victory against the mighty New Orleans Saints two weekends ago, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers slid to a 1 – 2 record last Sunday after falling to the red hot Houston Texans. Houston has a remarkably strong defense, and they proved just how true that was on Sunday by shutting down the Buccaneers 19 – 9. It’s clear that rookie quarterback Jameis Winston is still getting used to the rough and tumble professional arena. He’ll be looking for a better matchup this weekend when Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers come to visit Raymond James Stadium. Tickets are widely available and start at just $31 for the October 4 matchup.
9/25/15 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans can breathe easy this week after recovering from the opening game 42 – 14 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Last week, the Buccaneers were able to rally to beat Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints 26 – 19. It was a great win for the Buccaneers, as Drew Brees is usually all but an unstoppable force on the field. They were able to hold the NFL icon to just one passing touchdown, thus ruining the dreams of Brees fantasy owners everywhere. This week, the Buccaneers will continue their road trip in Houston. They will face the Texans this Sunday, September 27. Come find out if they will be able to continue their winning streak when all the action goes down this weekend!
9/17/15 - Matched up head-to-head with another vaunted rookie quarterback, Jameis Winston didn’t look quite like you’d expect the No. 1 overall pick to look. Marcus Mariota’s Titans might’ve come up with the victory in Week 1, but the Famous Jameis story is just getting started. The former Florida State standout completed 16 of 33 passes for 210 yards, collecting two each, TDs and INTs. He’ll have to wait until Week 4 for another opportunity at his first home win, as the Bucs visit New Orleans and Tampa Bay in the coming weeks. Tickets are on sale now for the Superdome and NRG Stadium—come out and show your Tampa Bay Buccaneers team spirit when your team hits the road! Get in to each game with seats starting at $59!
9/11/15 - The season opener for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is just mere days away, but already the team is facing a few hiccups as the injured list doesn’t seem to be getting any shorter. Receiver Mike Evans suffered a hamstring injury which kept him from playing in the last two preseason games, and it remains unclear whether he will be able to play Sunday against the Titans. Injuries are also hurting them at the defensive end position; T.J. Fatinikun is sidelined due to a shoulder injury. Despite these hurdles, the Bucs seem ready to begin the season. They have overcome last year’s disappointing record and have shaken up the roster with new players such as wide receiver Adam Humphries and kicker Kyle Brindza. Get your tickets for Sunday’s game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay today for just $43 and up.
9/1/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still considering making a few last minute roster changes ahead of their first regular season game on Sunday, September 13 against the Tennessee Titans. Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was spotted visiting the Buccaneers after being released by the Bears organization two days prior. It is still unclear whether or not Jennings will join the Buccaneers, as the season for roster cuts is not quite over. Come see how all of the adjustments shake out when the Buccaneers take on the Titans in less than two weeks. Tickets to the home opener game on September 13 are still widely available and can currently be purchased for as little as $52. Don’t miss a second of the regular season kickoff action!
8/26/15 - This Saturday (Aug. 29), the folks at Raymond James Stadium will see a familiar face as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Cleveland Browns. After being cut by the Broncos, Connor Barth has announced via Twitter that he is “looking forward to coming back home.” The kicker spent four season in Tampa until 2013, when he missed the season due to an injury to his Achilles tendon. After recovering, he joined Denver, but is now happy to be returning to the Bucs. He will now have to earn the starting position, but the competition against Patrick Murray will be tough. We will find out who earned the spot soon enough; kickoff for this weekend’s game against the Cleveland Browns is set for 7:00PM. Tickets start at $24.
8/21/15 - It was a shaky start for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who lost their preseason opener game to the Minnesota Vikings 26-16 on Saturday. This came as unwelcome and upsetting news to Buccaneers fans, as the team had acquired the promise of star quarterback and top draft pick Jameis Winston. Winston didn’t have a terrible game, but he didn’t have a good game either. The Buccaneers have already made changes to their lineup since Saturday’s loss. The most recent addition to the team is a rising right tackle, Gosder Cherilus, who will join the team for at least two years. Come see if the newest teammate helps get the Buccaneers a win when they face the Cincinnati Bengals at Raymond James Stadium on Monday, August 24.
8/6/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off to a bit of a rocky start as they prepare for their home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals at Raymond James Stadium on Monday, August 24. Rookie pick up quarterback Jameis Winston of Florida State University was one of the league’s top prospects during the NFL draft, but he’s been looking a little shaky during the Bengals’ training camp this week. He has thrown a concerning amount of interceptions during camp, putting more pressure on the team’s defense to improve and protect the young quarterback. Although Winston is making a few mistakes on the field, the Buccaneers say it’s nothing more than growing pains and they expect the young starter to be ready for show time later this month.
7/31/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking forward to beginning the training season with their first practice this Saturday (Aug. 1). The team is especially ready to put their first round draft pick, Jameis Winston, to the test on the field. After pictures and rumors were drummed up a few months ago about the quarterback’s weight gain, he has recently commented that he is back to his ideal weight and ready to work out with the team. The first home game for the Buccaneers is set to happen on Monday, Aug. 24 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Come join the rest of the fans at Raymond James Stadium by purchasing your tickets today! Prices start at just $4, so grab the whole family and enjoy a fun night of football!
7/17/15 - The 2015 NFL season is approximately a month away from beginning and all teams are starting up their last and final training camp to determine what players will fill which positions on the team. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are doing just that and possibly have some surprising players that might emerge as stars due to their young team. The wide receiver, Kenny Bell, is one player that might fit into that role. Even though he is a rookie and slotted for the third or fourth wide receiver position, he has the potential to make a great impact on the field if he gets the playing time. This season is going to be nothing short of exciting. Get your live tickets today so you don’t miss any of the action.
7/3/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off of a really rough 2014 season. They ended the year with a 2014 record, finishing in fourth place in the NFC South. The Buccaneers were ranked low both offensively and defensively compared to all of the other NFL teams. However, they made some huge strides with this year’s draft, picking up the number one quarterback available, Jameis Winston. Currently the plan in the Buccaneers forthcoming seasons is to build up a great offensive line to provide good support for Winston to be able to perform at his fullest potential. It is also imperative that they pick up some talented running backs along with receivers. See if they can pull off a better record this year when they start their season in August.
6/19/15 - Hopes and expectations are high for this year’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the addition of Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. In the second day of offseason minicamps, Winston put in practice work with the offensive first team. Coach Lovie Smith continues to flip-flop between quarterbacks as the preseason approaches, distributing snaps between Winston and Mike Glennon. Although many Bucs fans are clamoring to see Famous Jameis in action, Smith insists that there is no set depth chart as of yet. Who will open the season at the QB position for Tampa Bay? Get your tickets for preseason and regular season games now to follow all the action! August 24th marks the kick-off date for Buccaneers home preseason play as they host the Bengals at Raymond James Stadium. Seats start at just $4 if you act now!
6/5/15 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a pretty poor season last year, but they are spending the offseason preparing for a much stronger 2015. They have a young roster, so much of the offseason work has been in developing these youngsters into players to be reckoned with. One of their biggest additions was Jameis Winston, who was the first pick in the 2015 NFL draft. During this week’s OTA, Winston was seen playing as backup quarterback to Mike Glennon, who has rotated with Winston for first position during the offseason practices. Coach Lovie Smith is making Winston work to earn his first team position, while developing Winston into a strong player for the future. The season starts on August 15, and tickets are on sale for all games, starting at $3.
5/20/15 - Fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have much to look forward to in the upcoming 2015 – 2016 NFL season. Not only did the team lock down the single most valuable draft pick in Heisman Trophy winner quarterback Jameis Winston this offseason, their defensive prospects are looking equally as good. The team notes that the defense has really been gelling in their second season together. After finishing in the top five of nearly every category in their last ten games of the season, the burgeoning young defense is excited and ready for another shot at greatness this season. Although much attention has been given to the Buccaneers’ growing offense, it’s their defense that is poised to put the team in a position of strength this season.
5/6/15 - Now that the 2015 NFL draft has officially come to a close, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had a dismal season last year, have much to look forward to in the 2015 – 2016 season. Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht says his team came away with their single most important draft pick in their history as a franchise. That pick was none other than Jameis Winston, the youngest college quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy as a freshman. Winston was the quarterback for the Florida State Seminoles and led them to a BCS National Championship in 2014. Winston also played baseball for Florida State, although his contract with the Buccaneers will prevent him from playing baseball. The Buccaneers picked up Winston as the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
4/24/15 - After finishing at the bottom of the NFC South in 2014, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to reverse their fortunes in their upcoming season, which kicks off September 13th. To open 2015, the Bucs will be matched up against the Tennessee Titans, another team which struggled last year. Tampa Bay’s schedule includes plenty of intriguing games, from a Week 4 meeting with Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers to the Cowboys and Tony Romo in Week 10. The Buccaneers will also have to face Andrew Luck at least once this year, as they travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in Week 12. You can be a part of all the excitement that is live NFL action—tickets are on sale now for 2015 season games!
12/18/14 - The Tampa Bay buccaneers narrowly missed out on their third win of the season last weekend, falling 19-17 to division rival Carolina on the road; The Bucs now finish their season with a pair of strong tests, hosting Green Bay and New Orleans, both teams looking for a playoff berth.
12/11/14 - Opportunities for the Tampa Bay buccaneers to score that elusive third win of the season are growing fewer and fewer. The Bucs have one road game left, against Carolina; and close the season with home games against NFC North leading Green Bay, and wrapping up with New Orleans, who is in the hunt for a playoff berth.
12/4/14 - After scoring their second win of the season over Washington in Week 11, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fallen back on hard times, with a pair of losses. The most recent loss was a one-point defeat by visiting Cincinnati last weekend; the Bucs face surging Detroit this weekend.
11/20/14 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers broke a six week, five game losing streak last weekend in defeating Washington 27-7. Bucs quarterback Josh McCown threw for 288 yards against the Redskins defense, with Mike Evans on the receiving end of 209 of those yards.
11/13/14 - This weekend’s game at Washington may well be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ best shot at gaining a little momentum. The Bucs face a Redskins team still trying to sort out their offiense, and the following week take on a Chicago team who is also struggling.
11/6/14 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith has announced a change of quarterbacks, from Mike Gannon to Josh McCown, for the team’s game against Atlanta this weekend. The Bucs hope to move on from the last time they squared off against the Falcons, a 56-14 butt-whoopin’ that had some calling it one of the worst losses in league history.
10/30/14 - The running back situation for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can best be described as murky. It’s possible that starter Doug Martin could miss this weekend’s game with an ankle injury; however, this could open the door for rooke Charles Sims to make his first appearance.
10/10/14 - Help your Buccaneers turn their early season troubles into a playoff push by cheering them on to victory at Raymond James Stadium.

9/29/14 - It was the first start of the year for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon, and he took advantage of a beat-up Steeler defense, throwing a game-winning touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson, a five yard score with seven seconds left that gave Tampa Bay, destroyed by Atlanta a week before, a come from behind 27-24 win over the Steelers this weekend. Glennon was 21-42 for 302 yards with two TDs – Jackson’s, and one to Mike Evans – and an interception; Evans and Louis Murphy were Glennon’s leading targets in the game, the latter collecting 99 yards on six receptions. Doug Martin successfully returned from an injury to run for 40 yards and a touchdown in 14 rushes.
9/25/14 - In a game entitled by data-journalism website FiveThirtyEight as “the sixth-most dominant in NFL history,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were routed by division rival Atlanta last Thursday, 56-14. How historically bad was it? The Bucs gave up 35 points before collecting a single first down. They were down 49-0 by the middle of the third quarter, after giving up their fourth turnover of the game. By straight scoreline, the loss was just the 108th worst in league history; however, FiveThirtyEight’s Neil Paine refers to something called a “game script” developed by another of the site’s contributors, a stat which measures the average point margin at any given second in a game – this is where the “sixth worst” comes in, as the game had a game script of plus-32.9 in Atlanta’s favor. (The highest of these game scripts, a plus-34.9, was registered by Chicago, in their historic 73-0 trouncing of Washington in 1940.)
9/19/14 - This one was, in a word: ugly. Not since 1989 had the Tampa Bay Buccaneers allowed 56 points in a game – the second most points allowed by the Bucs in their history. And their opposition, divisional rival Atlanta, racked up that point total in just three quarters of play in a 56-14 rout. Tampa quarterback Josh McCown completed just five passes out of 12 attempts for 58 yards, and an interception, before being replaced by Mike Glennon; Glennon was 17-for-24 for 121 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson. Tampa’s defense also contributed a score, when Danny Lansanah returned a pick 27 yards for the last score of the game. The Bucs’ Robby Lainey made the most of his 18 offensive touches, rushing for 41 yards on 11 carries and collecting another 64 yards on seven carries.
9/10/14 - Tampa Bay has a new coach, and a new quarterback. Carolina was without Cam Newton. Still, the Buccaneers failed to stop Carolina’s offense or force any turnovers, falling to the Panthers 20-14 in the opener for both teams. Quarterback Josh McCown completed 22 of his 35 passes for 183 yards and a pair of touchdowns (to Chris Owusu and Bobby Rainey, both in the fourth quarter), but also threw two interceptions and was sacked three times. However, Tampa Bay’s defense allowed the Panthers to jump out to a 17-0 lead through three quarters, before the offense finally showed signs of life. The Bucs were driving for a third score in the fourth when Rainey fumbled after a short pass reception. Next up for the Buccaneers is a visit from St. Louis, who will also be looking for their first win of the season.
9/4/14 - Even though they faced neither of Washington’s starting quarterbacks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did little to press any advantage, falling 24-10 to the Redskins in the final preseason game for both clubs. Intended Bucs starter Josh McCown didn’t play this game, and second-stringer Mike Glennon played just one series, completing two of this three passes for a total of 10 yards; the remainder of the game was in the hands of Mike Kafka, who was 7-of-14 for 86 yards and a touchdown, a 25-yard completion to Solomon Patton – one of just two passes Patton caught all night. Kafka also ran three times for 22 yards.
8/27/14 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers notched their first win of 2014’s preseason last weekend on a trip to western New York, where they defeated the Buffalo Bills 27-14. Bucs quarterback Josh McCown was 13 of 16 for 112 yards on the evening, with a 24-yard touchdown pass to rookie Mike Evans in the second quarter; McCown also threw one interception and was sacked once for a 13 yard loss. Doug Martin rushed for 38 yards and a score on 12 carries; his one-yard run capped the first scoring drive of the game for the Bucs. The score by Evans was redemption for a rookie miscue last week against Miami, when Evans thought he had scored but on review was taken away.
8/22/14 - It was a call – and ultimately a rookie mistake – that may have turned the game around for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The play happened on what looked to be a 42-yard touchdown by Bucs rookie Mike Evans; but upon review, it turned out that a Miami defender had punched the ball out of Evans’ hands and through the end zone for a turnover. Other than that, the Bucs scored just twice in the 20-16 loss to the Dolphins; quarterback Mike Glennon completed just 6 of 12 for 77 yards; Mike Kafka threw for a score late in the fourth quarter, a 13-yard completion to Lavelle Hawkins.
8/15/14 - In a 16-10 loss to in-state rival Jacksonville to start the exhibision season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were rotating four players – Oniel Cousins, Jamon Meredith, Patrick Omameh, and Kadeem Edwards – through the two guard positions on the offensive line in an attempt to determine who best could fill those positions. Both spots are wide open, to determine who will start the season, and head coach Lovie Smith insists there is no need to panic. However, it’s been a concern among the members of the Bucs’ staff, especially after former starter Carl Nicks left the team after being unable to heal properly from an injury. Smith insisted that fans not panic this early, saying “Let it play out a bit in the preseason.”
7/31/14 - It took them a week to make it official, but the Tampa Bay buccaneers released a player who was at one point expected to hold down a starting offensive left guard. Carl Nicks was let go by the Bucs last week, but only made the move official on Wednesday. Also, injuries have taken a toll in the early days for the defensive backfield, as a pair of cornerbacks, Rashaam Melvin and Alterraun Verner, both suffered injuries – Melvin with an ankle injury, Verner with a hamstring issue. While neither injury is expected to be particularly swerious, the Bucs have signed a pair of free-agent corners in Kid Edwards and Anthony Gaitor, himself a former buccaneer.
7/24/14 - Gerald McCoy is excited for his Tampa Bay Buccaneers – on both sides of the ball. McCoy told the Tampa Bay Times newspaper that he is especially excited about the Bucs’ offense, and told the newspaper regarding offseason acquisition Josh McCown, “I think a lot of people are about to see how good (McCown) really is.” McCoy described the 35-year-old McCown as, “(With) the amount of time he’s played, he’s 28,” noting that the veteran signal-caller had gained much experience without the wear and tear of a regular starting quarterback. McCoy was also enthusiastic about defensive acquisition Michael Johnson, who gives the Buccaneers an outside pass rusher they lacked.
7/10/14 - The life of a “military brat” – the son or daughter of one of our nation’s military – is not simple. Between being uprooted every two to three years to a new state (or country), parents being sent on extended temporary duty assignments which can stretch from a few days to several years, it can affect kids in any number of ways both positive (broadened cultural experiences) and negative (adjustment issues). In one of the better news items of the offseason, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson, himself the son of Army parents on both sides, unveiled a book whose audience is the kids of military parents, called “Danny Dogtags: Dealing with Deployment.” Jackson hosted several dozen kids at an event in June in which he read his new book to them; proceeds from the book’s sales will go to a charity dedicated to the health of military kids.
6/26/14 - It’s a sign of how much pressure an NFL team like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are to rebuild and become competitive (right now!), that since hiring head coach Lovie Smith in January, the team has installed new offensive and defensive systems, and so overhauled the roster that it’s estimated at around half the 53-man roster will play their first game in a Bucs uniform when the season starts But, that doesn’t bother Smith, who told the Tampa Bay Times, We like the team. We like the way they come into work every day …It’s believing in the guys. When you come to work, and say, ‘do this,’ and (the players) are anxious to do it, how can you not be pumped up?”
6/19/14 - Signings and waivings highlighted recent activity for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs finished signing their 2014 draft class with separate announcements that they had signed Charles Sims and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Running back Sims, who transferred to West Virginia after starting his college career at the University of Houston, signed a deal estimated at just over $3 million for four years with a signing bonus of just over $684,000. The signing of tight end Seferian-Jenkins, a second round pick out of Washington, was announced after the Buccaneers had received the signed contract in the mail, since he was still in school at the time he signed. Specific terms of both deals were not announced. The Bucs also signed tryout receiver David Gettis, formerly of Carolina, and waived a pair of players.
6/16/14 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced this week that their first-round draft pick, Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans, has been signed to a four year contract (with a team option for a fifth year) valued at a roughly $14.63 million, which includes a signing bonus of nearly $9 million. Though many expected the Bucs would choose a quarterback with their pick, the seventh overall in the 2014 draft, the team settled on Evans, an Aggie teammate of widely-heralded quarterback Johnny Manziel. After Evans’ selection, many pundits praised the selection, noting that the Buccaneers needed another playmaking receiver.
6/4/14 - Do not expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coaching staff to put the bulk of their running game on a single player – most notably Doug Martin. Coach Jeff Tedford told ESPN.com he doesn’t believe that a single running back can carry the load. Tedford said, “I think you need to have two to three guys that bring different things to the table. …That’s the goal, to try to create some depth.” Among those players Tedford may choose from are 2014 third-round draft pick Charles Sims; Mike James and Bobby Rainey, who each performed well when asked to step in for Martin last season; and former Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps, who looks to be an experiment.
5/30/14 - The sports world is mourning the passing of Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner and team president Malcolm Glazer, who died on May 28 aged 85 years. Glazer had been owner of the Bucs since 1995, and built the team into a Super Bowl champion in 2002. Also known for his ownership of the English Premier League’s Manchester United soccer club since 2005, Glazer was also owner or primary shareholder of numerous other non-sporting entities, such as Harley Davidson, Houlihan’s restaurants, Formica, and the Tonka toy company.
5/23/14 - Drafting offensive players in every round, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hope to bring more firepower to a weakness in 2014. Their first round pick, Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, is projected to be an Opening Day starter and the number 2 wide receiver on the Bucs’ roster opposite Vincent Jackson. The Bucs also got a tight end (Washington’s Austin Seferian-Jenkins), a running back (Charles Sims from West Virginia), another receiver (Wyoming product Robert Herron), and some offensive line help in Purdue’s Kevin Pamphile and Tennessee State’s Kadeem Edwards.
5/14/14 - The Bucs got a good wide receiver with size in #7 pick Mike Evans from Texas A&M. And they went all offense with all their picks selecting a tight end, running back, offensive guard, offensive tackle and another wide receiver.
4/16/14 - There will be two big debuts for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason 2014. Lovie Smith will make his first appearance as head coach after being removed from his chair in Chicago a year ago. Also a Windy City import, Josh McCown traded in his Bears duds for the starting quarterback position over Mike Glennon. The Bucs will kick things off on the road with a visit to Jacksonville in Week 1 (Aug 7-10), before returning to Raymond James in Week 2 (Aug 14-18) to face the Miami Dolphins. The Bucs will take a rare trip up to Buffalo to play the Bills in Week 3, before returning home for their third game in the Sunshine State, and their only set date of preseason: an Aug 28 matchup against the Washington Redskins. Score Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets and take a look at this new-look team this summer!
The Bucs open the regular-season at home against rivals Carolina (avg. $257) . In fact, Tampa Bay will play three division foes within the first five weeks including a Week 3 Thursday Night Football game against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. The road game will be a test for the revamped defense as will the Saints in Week 5. By the time the Buccaneers enter their bye week (Week 7), fans will have a pretty good idea how their team will finish in the division. Perhaps the most memorable game on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers schedule will be played November 23 in Chicago for Lovie Smith’s homecoming. The former Bears’ head coach will undoubtedly have his team prepared for this cold-weather meeting! Arguably the toughest part of the Bucs schedule comes in the last two games played at Raymond James Stadium versus Green Bay and New Orleans. Grab your Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets today and see for yourself just how much the many offseason moves have helped the squad!
2/13/14 – The Bucs were quick to lock down a new head coach this offseason in Lovie Smith. Shortly after, Tampa Bay hired Leslie Frazier and Jeff Tedford as defensive and offensive coordinator. Rounding out the new coaching staff, are Mike Phair (assistant defensive line coach) and Carlos Polk (assistant special teams coach). Smith and Co. will look to elevate the talented Buccaneers roster that boast the likes of Darrelle Revis, Gerald McCoy, Lavonte David, and Mike Glennon. Tampa Bay fans, be sure to get to a home game this season as the Bucs will host the Falcons, Panthers, Saints, Packers, Vikings, Rams, Ravens and Bengals.
12/17/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were manhandled, 33-14, by the visiting San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at home field in Raymond James Stadium. The resurgent Bucs and their fans have grown accustomed to hearing the booming pirate cannons go off in the arena over the last couple weeks, but they only managed two touchdowns this time around against the Niners' notoriously ferocious defense. In Week 16, the Bucs will travel to St. Louis to play the Rams hot off the heels of their remarkable New Orleans Saints rout. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets start at just $12 and $50 on average this Sunday.
12/12/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are out of playoff contention, but proved they aren’t an easy out, as they held the Buffalo Bills to single digits on Sunday in their 6-27 win. Tampa Bay’s momentum kicked into high gear after showcase rookie Bobby Rainey rushed the field for 80 yards undeterred. In Week 15 the Buccaneers will look to keep up the good work and rattle San Francisco on their path to playoffs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets are one of the hotter commodities of the week at $141 on average, but you can steal a seat for just $7, when the Bucs host the 49ers at Raymond James Stadium.
12/3/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hit a major roadblock on their road to 4 straight victories when they met to the Carolina Panthers and lost, 6-27, on Sunday. Despite playing great games in the month of November, the Bucs did not start off December ideally. Mike Glennon looked more like a rookie than ever (14 of 21 and 1 interception), and the Bucs lost linebacker Jonathan Casillas for the rest of the season to a knee injury. On the upside, cornerback Darrelle Revis will most likely return this week, despite coming into Sunday off of a groin injury and leaving early with shoulder and chest pain. Can the Bucs bounce back this Sunday? Score Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets for just $32 to start and $91 on average.
11/26/13 - The Buccaneers have done it again—and this time it was on the road! The Tampa Bay nation truly has something to be thankful for this holiday, as their team has achieved three consecutive victories, recently sailing right past the Detroit Lions, 24-21. The Bucs’ cool and collected QB Mike Glennon played nearly “mistake-free” football, while the Lions had 5 turnovers. The Bucs’ Johnathan Banks picked Matt Stafford’s pass to Calvin Johnson right out of the receiver’s hands in the final minute to secure a victory over the (at the time) NFC North leaders. Can the Bucs pull off a fourth win? Check out Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets for their match-up against the Carolina Panthers, just $46 to get in!
11/19/13- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers trounced the Atlanta Falcons, 41-28, in perhaps their best game of the season. With back to back victories, the Bucs have moved to 2-8 on the season, with the help of Mike Glennon and breakout 3rd string running back, Bobby Rainey, who had 30 carries for 163 yards and three touchdowns. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are pitted against the rough and tumble Detroit Lions in hostile territory next week—tickets start at $43 and average at $108.
11/12/13 - Winless no more! The Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are two teams to have seen their fair share of scandal this year, from Richie Incognito to Josh Freeman, but when both Florida teams laid it all out for Monday Night football, it was the Buccaneers who came away victorious. With Revis Island in full force and Mike Glennon steering the ship, pirate cannons were booming across Raymond James Stadium, as the squad finally trumped adversity and held off the Dolphins’ rally to give Coach Schiano his first win of the year—let’s hope it’s not Tampa Bay’s last! The Bucs host the Atlanta Falcons next, and tickets are the second lowest of the week, at $62 on average and $14 to get in.
11/5/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers nearly pulled off a miraculous victory over the Seattle Seahawks (the unanimous favorite) but were unable to hold onto the lead, and remain winless. The game ended in overtime, 24-27, as Russell Wilson rallied the ‘Hawks to victory despite a 21-point deficit while the Bucs all but collapsed under the pressure. On the up side, rookie Mike Glennon finished 17 of 23 with 2 TDs and no interceptions, with a 123.1 passer rating, breathing life into the 0-8 team. Next up, the squad is pitted against in-state rivals, the Miami Dolphins. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets are $119 on average.
10/29/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will emerge from their short break to play the Seattle Seahawks—not a team anyone wants to face when looking for a win—especially when that victory would be the first of the year. With each passing game, and a recent blowout loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday (31-13), talk is mounting of Greg Schiano losing both the locker room and his job. Not all is lost, however, as rookie Mike Glennon is showing more confidence with each game; he’s made 181 pass attempts in his first four games, which is the most in NFL history. The Bucs will take the show on the road for Week 9, into intimidating territory, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets are $28 to get in and $213 on average.
10/22/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were defeated by the Atlanta Falcons, 23-31 at the Georgia Dome on Sunday, dropping their sinking record to 0-6. Although the Bucs were competitive in the game, they were unable to take full control, and came up short in the fourth quarter, kicking a field goal with five minutes left when perhaps a more aggressive move by coach Schiano would have better suited the dire situation. As was the trend for Week 7, running back Doug Martin will be out for the season form a torn labrum in his shoulder, incurred when Falcons safety William Moore rammed into him at the 1-yard line. There is reason for optimism and potential in young rookie quarterback Mike Glennon, who had a good game on Sunday, despite having trouble with the deep ball. The Buccaneers are set to play the Carolina Panthers and a hot Cam Newton in Week 8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets are the second lowest average ticket of the week at $69.
10/16/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered yet another defeat on their winless season, falling 20-31 against the Philadelphia Eagles. This game in particular comes as a heartbreaking loss, as the Bucs were leading the score in the first half of the game and quarterback Mike Glennon showed some improvements, completing 26-43 passes for 273 yards and 2 touchdowns. Now Buccaneers manager Mark Dominik will be open to an investigation for the Josh Freeman substance-abuse leak to show that there is integrity within the organization and among coaching staff and players. Tampa Bay will be visiting the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome next Sunday, for Mike Glennon’s first away game. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets are just $15 to get in—the third cheapest of Week 7.
10/8/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-4 heading into Week 6. During their bye week, they released former quarterback Josh Freeman who wound up in Minnesota with the Vikings and the Bucs will continue to start Mike Glennon. Colossal cornerback Darrelle Revis will try to maintain his hold on the Eagles’ speedy DeSean Jackson, and the team will look to gain their first win when they host the Michael Vick-less Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets are predictably the lowest priced seats of the week, averaging $104.
10/1/13 - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are one of four teams struck by the dreaded 0-4 start. The Bucs lost to the Arizona Cardinals 13-10 on Sunday, but most recent news about the Buccaneers surrounds quarterback Josh Freeman—demoted by head coach Greg Schiano, who has been shopping him around with reportedly mild interest from 1/3 of the teams in the NFL. Interest in Freeman is undoubtedly even more minimal after his confidential participation in the NFL’s Stage 1 drug program was leaked to the public. The quarterback is now requesting a release from the Buccaneers that will allow him to receive the rest of his salary and choose his own team to move on to next. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are starting Mike Glennon, who is showing signs of potential, scoring his first career touchdown in the first quarter against The Cardinals. Their defense, starring Darrelle Revis, has consistently been on point, allowing only 5 touchdowns through four games. For now, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are entering their bye week but will be back to play the Philadelphia Eagles in Florida in Week 6.
9/25/13 - After a humbling defeat by the Patriots on Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are another team who have maintained the dreaded 0-3 losing streak. Quarterback Josh Freeman was benched on Wednesday in favor of rookie Mike Glennon, and now talk of him being traded is surfacing. There are other problems on the team, with receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams’ lackluster performances, the Buccaneers are ranked 31st in scoring (11), passing (174) and total yards (282) per game. Head coach Greg Schiano is hoping this change in the pocket will provide fresh and moral boosting energy that is much needed if they want to entertain thoughts of turning their season around, or defeat the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. The Buccaneers will have home field advantage in Tampa for Week 4; tickets are a low $14 to get in.
With one of the youngest teams in the NFL, the Buccaneers look to improve on their 7-9 record from last season and challenge for an NFL Playoffs spot in 2013 under second-year head coach Greg Schiano. The Bucs are led on offense by fifth-year quarterback Josh Freeman and second-year standout running back Doug Martin. After spending his entire 15-year career in Tampa Bay, future Hall-of-Fame safety Ronde Barber retired from football following last season. Replacing him as a leader on defense will be All-Pro corner Darrelle Revis, who was acquired from the New York Jets. Revis will return to New York to face his former team to open the 2013 season.
