- 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.
