Offseason Workouts Update: June 1

(Updates are up to and as recent as June 1, 2010)

  • The Safety position will continue to be one of the most talked about news stories leading up to the 2010 season. As of now, both Sean Jones and Sabby Piscitelli are taking reps with the first team defense. Obviously none of these players has received any sort of  “edge” on the other competitor, so for now, both Sabby and Jones will duke it out for the starting role. In my opinion, I see the Bucs leaning with Jones come Week One, but it still doesn’t rule out the possiblity of both Jones and Piscitelli switiching in and out during the regular season games.
  • Switching to the other side of the ball, the Buccaneers have placed Cadillac Williams as the starter in offseason workouts. Now this isn’t a big surprise at all, but it is news worthy in this dry part of the offseason. Behind Williams is Derrick Ward, who will hopefully get back to his ’08 self and be a big play threat come 2010.
  • Sticking to the backfield, we have learned that Earnest Graham (the former starting Running Back) will be starting the season as the team’s #1 Fullback.
  • In a non-workout story, Bucs’ Cornerback Ronde Barber spoke to the media earlier this week, and said that he expects Aqib Talib to surpass all of his franchise’s records. These are some pretty strong words coming from a Hall of Fame bound athlete.

    How can you see Barber as a Hall of Famer? I got the interception and sack numbers but I believe Barber is a good player. Not elite that should be in the HOF. When you think of HOF CB/Safety names like Night Train Lane, Dick LeBeau, Ronnie Lott, Lem Barney, Willie Brown, Woodsen come to mind. I grew up watching Jack Tatum and Lester Hayes who I beleive were more awesome than Barber. Deion Sanders is another example of a better player, although not in yet, is better than Ronde. Barber is not in the same category as these players,

    I happen to agree with you Blackhawk, but I think that the numbers, the Super Bowl, the key plays during that season, and the 5 Pro Bowls and 3 first team all NFL will be what ultimately gets Ronde in.
