The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fresh with new players and coaches and look to bounce back in the NFC South this upcoming season. With organized team activities beginning to kick off, let's take a look at five rumors surrounding the organization at the moment.
It looks like the Buccaneers have come to terms with trick-shot YouTube sensation Alex Tanney. Tanney entered the league as an undrafted free agent quarterback in 2012 from Monmouth University. Since his arrival into the NFL, he spent time on the practice squads of the Chiefs, Cowboys and Browns.
A former cheerleader of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is apparently suing the team for violating wage laws. Manouchar Pierre-Val says she was not paid for several appearances at promotional occasions and team practices.
Apparently, Buccaneers' first-round pick Mike Evans said that he prefers hitting defenders (legally) over scoring touchdowns. I get it, hitting is fun, but I'm pretty sure Tampa Bay drafted the former Texas A&M receiver to score touchdowns. At a towering 6-foot-5, Evans becomes an immediate red zone threat to opposing defenses.
Despite the herd of tight ends who recently flocked into Tampa Bay, TE Timothy Wright said that he is happy. The Bucs drafted Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was the team's highest rated tight end on the draft board. Wright said that he likes all the size and versatility that overcrowds the position.
Glennon may have been one the most talked about topics when it came to NFL draft trade rumors, but despite all the gossip, he remains a Buccaneer. Apparently now, the team is calling Glennon its "quarterback of the future." For the amount of time he played as a rookie last year, he was able to put up some decent numbers. He started in 13 games totaling 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions with a 83.9 passer rating.
