Here is some of the news and information from around the web for this Wednesday:
- Warren Sapp will announce the Buccaneers’ 2013 NFL Draft second round selection. Sapp was just elected to the Hall of Fame, and will almost certainly be with the NFL Network’s crew covering the draft, so it’s little more than a bit of fanfare to allow him to announce the pick. Still, it’s cool to see Warren introducing one of the newest Buccaneers at the draft, and ironically, it might be a defensive lineman taken in the second round that he winds up announcing.
- Andy Benoit of Football Outsiders has an excellent article on the state of the Buccaneers’ current roster. Looking for a brutally honest take on every guy on the Bucs depth chart? Look at this article. He puts a realistic and fair value on every player on the roster, and it may contradict the opinion of some fans. Still, give it a read, and assess for yourself the state of the Bucs’ roster.
- No news is good news? The New York Daily News continues to try and get more information about a Darrelle Revis trade from New York Jets‘ brass, and continues to get non-answers. Not a surprise. This article posted today basically tells us the Jets are considering a trade, but in the same way every team considers every trade possibility. The Jets are likely just holding out for too much compensation, and may jeopardize their ability to get a deal done with their stubbornness. Either that, or the Buccaneers aren’t sure they want Revis. Regardless, we still know nothing more about the situation than we did days or weeks ago.
- Tavon Austin is reportedly a player the Buccaneers are interested in, according to multiple sources. This NFL.com article gives a brief shout out to Peter King, who is one of the media members reporting this “news.” The article also mentions some Revis trade information from King.
That’s all today, but stay tuned as we barrel towards the draft and more and more news about the Buccaneers’ favored prospects and a potential trade with the New York Jets filters through.
