I think Licht and Koetter learned from watching the Raiders last year that if your franchise QB goes down for any amount of time and you don't have a competent veteran backup who has started games in the NFL and had some level of success, you might as well kiss your season goodbye. Griffin would have been a nightmare, probably. I hope nothing happens to Jameis, but if he goes down I'm very confident Fitz can manage the game and get us a W. Pretty solid vet backup in my opinion. Also, just cuz we signed Fitz doesn't mean Jameis is going to get hurt. That's ludicrous.

Perfectly fine with Fitzpatrick as a backup. Good signing and good price.

On goal posts that are half the size of NFL regulation, #Bucs K Roberto Aguayo was 1-4 at the end of practice, veteran Nick Folk was 4-4.

It's really, really early. But Aguayo isn't off to a very good start.

Today's starting offensive line: RT Demar Dotson, RG J.R. Sweezy, C Ali Marpet, LG Kevin Pamphile and LT Donovan Smith.

No surprises here.

Bucs K Roberto Aguayo connected on just 5-of-9 field goal attempts during two OTA practices open to the media last week.
Competitor Nick Folk went 9-for-9 on kicks all from the same distance. Tampa Bay Times reporter Rick Stroud is skeptical Aguayo will be a part of the Bucs' 2017 roster, just one year after GM Jason Licht traded up to draft him in the second round. Whereas Aguayo managed a league-low 71 percent field goal rate as a rookie, Folk is a lifetime 81.3-percent kicker. May 28 - 10:49 PM

They were the skinny goalposts too.

It looks like Folk is our guy. Wonder how many years we can get from him.

Wish we still had Matt Bryant. Sad

It's just so painful to realize we traded up for a kicker who is awful. It's one thing to trade up for a 10-15 year stud, but he is far from that. Just think of the other players we could have had instead.

The thing that gets me is an article I read a while back. Aguayo could never consistently make kicks over 40 yards and his make percentage went down each year. 40+ is where you make your money as an NFL kicker. I just don't see what Licht was thinking. I get that we needed a kicker bad, but why did he go this route.

At the end of the day every GM makes mistakes and this is one that makes you look really silly, but in the end will have minimal consequences on the team or cap to correct. Oh well. Hats off to Licht willing to admit the mistake and not compound the problem for another season.

To play devils advocate here, atleast Licht had the cojones to make a move to get a guy he thought was this guy. Lets not pretend he wasnt called the best kicking prospect in decades. I wish we would have just made a move for Justin Tucker, but it is what it is....

Still the fact that Licht didnt hold back from getting real competition because of "draft capital" shows you all you need to know about our GM. We got a good one....

Look back at all of BB's picks as the guy for the Pats....I mean he took Lawrence Maroney over Deangello Williams for christ sakes...The biggest thing is he never allows a player to stay on the roster that can be upgraded

What do you guy think of signing Maclin?

I think he fits your team perfectly. Can be that 3rd WR in the slot/possession role with Jackson and Evans doing the heavy lifting outside.

We've got Hump returning as our main slot guy. And Godwin has been really impressive so far, both in the slot and on the outside.

Last year I'd have been screaming for a guy like Maclin. But we're a little crowded right now and have a lot of young talent we need to get reps/playing time.

I'd be shocked if we sign any veteran WRs. After we passed on Cooper, despite him obviously being the best WR there, I think we made it clear we're looking for younger/developmental guys. I'd imagine the depth chart will look something like:

Mike Evans
DeSean Jackson
Adam Humphries
Chris Godwin
Bobo Wilson

And maybe one more guy. Guys like Josh Huff, Bernard Reedy, Freddie Martino, and Donteea Dye are competing for what may be one spot. Of those four, only Reedy is practice squad eligible.

Buccaneers’ safety Keith Tandy appears to have starting role locked up

Ira Kauffman wrote:
“I have been told that in this competition, maybe a four-way competition when you add in Wilcox and the rookie Evans with Conte and Tandy, I’ve been told that Tandy basically has a starting job secured. He’s basically going to be very difficult to dislodge this fall unless Evans is lights out and Wilcox is even better than they think.”

I like it.

It's a three horse race for the other safety spot. Hopefully Evans balls and earns it.

Aguayo, who will be competing with Nick Folk to retain his starting kicking job, was a perfect five-for-five on his field goal attempts at the end of Tuesday's practice. His final kick from 53 yards out sailed cleanly through the uprights. Folk was four-for-five, missing his final kick from 53.
