Free-agent WR Sterling Shepard (Giants) signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources Thursday, June 6. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Shepard is not the same player that flashed years ago (2018), but he provides valuable experience for the Buccaneers on the depth chart. He's competing for a reserve spot as the no.4 or no.5 receiver behind Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Jalen McMillan, and Trey Palmer.

  Buccaneers | Jalen McMillan signs rookie deal    Wed May 29, 03:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers third-round draft choice WR Jalen McMillan signed a four-year contract with the Buccaneers Wednesday, May 29. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: McMillan was one of our favorite mid-round receivers in the 2024 NFL draft. The Washington wideout can work a defense from the slot. We like the way he can pick up yards after the catch, and McMillan smoothly makes the transition from receiver to runner on underneath routes where he can catch the ball in stride. The rookie is working to be the no.3 receiver for the Buccaneers behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

  Buccaneers | Antione Winfield extended    Mon May 13, 02:06 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers S Antoine Winfield Jr. agreed to a four-year deal worth $84.1 million, according to sources Monday, May 13. The deal includes $45 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The deal makes Winfield, who received the franchise tag in March, the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history -- the first time in modern NFL history that a safety has set this mark. As ESPN.com's Jenna Laine reported, Winfield turned in one of the finest performances of any defensive player in the league in 2023 -- tying for a league-leading six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries. He registered 122 tackles -- fourth most among all league defensive backs and second most on the team -- with six tackles for loss, 12 passes defended, six sacks, eight quarterback hits, and three interceptions. Winfield is positioned to continue delivering at a high level this year.

  Buccaneers | Bucky Irving, Elijah Klein signed    Sat May 11, 09:54 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fourth-round draft choice RB Bucky Irving and sixth-round draft choice OG Elijah Klein signed four-year contracts with the Buccaneers Friday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Irving is undersized and had a poor combine, but the same could have been said of Kyren Williams in 2022. For now, Irving is no threat to Rachaad White's fantasy value, but he should get more work as the backup to White than Chase Edmonds did. In the long term, Irving could surprise with his elusiveness and tackle-breaking ability. He's worth a third/fourth round pick in dynasty rookie drafts.

  Buccaneers | Jalen McMillan fully healed    Fri May 10, 02:46 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers third-round draft choice WR Jalen McMillan (Washington) told reporters his sprained medial collateral ligament from last season is 100% as of Friday, May 10.

Footballguys view: McMillan has talent, and he's going to compete for the no.3 job on the depth chart behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Trey Palmer will be the primary competition for the spot. McMillan has a nice size/speed combination with reliable hands, but he may not be as fast as Palmer.

  Buccaneers | Coaches Believe Rookie RB Bucky Irving Can Contribute    Tue May 7, 04:16 PM

While speaking to reporters at a press conference on Monday, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Liam Coen said he thinks the way the team's offense can go from good to great in 2024 is to get better in the run game, and a newcomer looks like he'll be part of that effort. The Bucs drafted Bucky Irving out of Oregon in the fourth round earlier this month and Coen said on Monday that the rookie is "pretty dynamic where he gives us the ability in the run and pass game."

Footballguys view: Running backs coach Skip Peete said Irving has the ability to "create big plays" that could serve him well when it comes to vying with Rachaad White and others for a place in the backfield. Remember, White finished last year as RB4, a number based heavily on volume. White's 336 touches last year were second in the NFL, behind San Francisco's Christian McCaffrey's 339. Still, no team in the league ran for fewer yards than the Buccaneers in 2023, so anything Irving or anyone else can do to lift the team to a better place will be a step in the right direction in Tampa -- even if it's not ideal for White. We'll continue to monitor.

  Buccaneers | Early role for Jalen McMillan?    Sun May 5, 01:39 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Jalen McMillan could be a 'true No. 3 receiver' this season with the offense expected to feature more three-receiver sets under offensive coordinator Liam Coen, according to Jenna Laine of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: McMillan has a ton of talent, and he could win the no.3 job on the depth chart behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as a rookie. The third-round pick out of Washington can be a consistent playmaker. He's got a nice size/speed combination, and McMillan is a savvy route runner who can create his own space before and after the catch. We love him in dynasty formats.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay adds Bucky Irving    Sat Apr 27, 01:28 PM

Oregon RB Bucky Irving was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the 125th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Irving is a slot receiver who plays running back. He's so quick and so fast that sometimes he's a blur on the field. Irving is not your traditional running back, so the Buccaneers will have to creative with the way he is used.
