The Seahawks made an underrated move Wednesday that could have a ripple effect on the power structure of the NFC.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have spent the past half-decade applying a very successful strategy to their contracts and salary cap management: minimal signing bonuses, a mostly flat salary structure, and keeping annual salary cap hits very close to a player’s actual annual compensation.

Mel Kiper sure publishes a lot of mock drafts. Today the long-time ESPN analyst published his third mock draft of the 2017 NFL draft season, and it’s a pretty interesting one for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are awfully close to appearing in the postseason for the first time since 2007 and management clearly feels the same way. General manager Jason Licht has reacted accordingly by shoring up some of the Buc’s biggest weaknesses and re-signing some of his top players from last year. There is still working to be done but it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to...
After eight seasons as a starting offensive tackle and one final year as a reserve, former Detroit Lions first-round pick Gosder Cherilus is planning on retiring from the National Football League.

Desean Jackson got the uniform number he wanted and helped out children in the process. It was a win for everyone involved.Not long after joining the Buccaneers, Jackson got to work on seeing what it would take to be able to wear uniform No. 11 with this new team.

Mike Glennon has yet to actually sign with the Chicago Bears, though the move is expected to happen any time. But this has not stopped several free agents from reportedly texting NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport to express their desire to play with Glennon in Chicago. Talk about feeling the love.

Ever since Jameis Winston arrived in the NFL two years ago, he's forged a deep relationship with Tim Grover, the man who famously trained Michael Jordan during his prolific NBA career. After a rookie season in which Winston played at 240 pounds, a weight on par with quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger, Winston focused on shedding his baby fat and called on Grover for help. By year...
Buccaneers potentially pairing DeSean Jackson with Mike Evans is bad news for the rest of the league
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t holding back this offseason with free agency approaching.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport shared the report: NFL.com’s Marc Sessler noted Winston himself has talked up they hypothetical...
Let’s say you’re running the Chicago Bears. I’m sorry, you’ll just need to bite the bullet on this one. So you’re running the Bears, thinking ‘Well, Jay Cutler isn’t going to be around forever. We need to find our next quarterback!’ So who do you target? Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade. Perhaps you’re thinking of using the third overall pick, be it in a trade or...
Here is a sentence many thought they would never read—Mike Glennon is the most sought-after quarterback in the NFL right now.

Mike Glennon could not have asked for a better time to become a free agent, and he may end up becoming this offseason’s Brock Osweiler because of it.At the moment, Glennon is the best quarterback available in an alarmingly thin market at the position.
