Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Five things to watch as the Buccaneers, who haven’t won a postseason game since winning the Super Bowl 10 years ago, try to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquired cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets late Sunday in a trade that will send Tampa’s first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and a conditional pick in the 2014 Draft to the Jets.
Well, to the surprise of absolutely no one not named Brandon Jennings, the Heat opened up a can on the Milwaukee Bucks and they can get better. Plus, the Marlins are historically bad and I mean deep history. The Bucs fleeced the Jets in the Darrelle Revis trade. And some brief commentary on the state of television news in the wake of the Boston bombings.
The Miami Dolphins aren’t even finished with free agency and the draft is still a few weeks away, but we now know who the Fins will play during the 2013 preseason.
Defensive line isn’t a priority for the Dolphins this offseason, but adding a true pass rusher opposite Cameron Wake would be a major addition to an already stout defense.
After two days of free agency in the National Football League, some teams are starting to separate themselves as doing very well this offseason while others are struggling through what’s been called salary cap hell.
While the Miami Dolphins are on the outside looking in on the NFL Playoffs again this year, there is hope thanks to salary cap management that gives the team a lot of flexibility in the offseason. But Miami isn’t alone when it comes to tons of salary cap space.
When Florida International University Athletic Director Pete Garcia fired head football coach Mario Cristobal, he said he wanted a big name hire to take over the program. Late Thursday night, word leaked out who the “big” name is that Garcia selected.
Kellen Winslow II was a dominant tight end at the University of Miami and wound up being picked with the sixth pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. But since then, the man who once described himself as “a soldier” has played for five NFL teams and after being released by the New England Patriots is now unemployed in 2012.
In the NFL, you can never have too much speed on your roster. Tuesday, former Florida Gators running back/track star Jeff Demps filed to become an NFL free agent and the speculation over where the speedster will land started immediately.
