(r)Amp Up for 2010!!

Wow, there is nothing like a long, hot summer!!  Hope everyone has had time to enjoy it!  It's been a madhouse of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and individual workouts at One Buccaneer Place.  Now it's getting close to time to get to work.

Oh-yeah!!  Football Season is only about two weeks away!!

It has been a very busy offseason for the Buccaneers:  a promising draft is in the books, the scouting staff has been reorganized, the team held off on OTAs until after the draft so their rookies could fully participate (as far as I've seen or heard, Tampa Bay was the only team to do so), and contract work has gone on all summer.

Camp starts July 31st.  Are you feeling it yet?

So not too long to prep for camp, and there is a lot to review and analyze, not the least of which are the following:

1)  Unsigned draft picks:  #1 Gerald McCoy, #2 Brian Price, #3 Arrelious Benn, and #7a Cody Grimm.
2)  The players released as these rookies get signed.
3)  One Restricted (and now Exclusive) Free Agent, Donald Penn, has not signed his contract for the upcoming season.
4)  Position battles on the Offensive Line, at Safety, and at the Wide Receiver positions.

Plus a revisit to the young core rosters to check on the rebuilding process and see how many of the young players have survived the offseason. 

Oh, and the Buccaneers are carrying one too many Quarterbacks as well.

You gotta be feeling it!  Tell me you're feeling it!!

Let The Games Begin!!!
