Pewter and Read: Buccaneers News, Rumors and Opinions, June 25th, 2013


Here’s your Pewter and Read for a slow news Tuesday!

  • Over at Bleacher Report, Caleb Abner and Paul Thelen both have some things to say about Josh Freeman. Needless to say Freeman is a pretty popular guy these days, with news and rumors flying all over the web about him.  Is he the Bucs’ future at QB? Will he be benched this season? Is he the next Joe Flacco? It’s interesting to see him draw so much attention, as the Buccaneers’ QB position has really been an oversight for the longest time, with media talking heads never caring about the Bucs’ QBs. But Josh Freeman is good enough to talk about, but not good enough to be universally respected, so he’s in the same state of limbo as Jay Cutler, Phillip Rivers, and Tony Romo. Interesting to see an increase in narrative and discussion about the Kansas State product.
  • Mike Williams had surgery on his tonsils. Nothing special to say here, except it’s good he got this out of the way over the offseason, as this is something we don’t need to pop up during the season. Wishing him a quick and full recovery, and hope he enjoys the ice cream!
  • If you’ve never read “The Answer Man” over at Buccaneers.com, consider this your official command to do so now. It’s always a bit funny, but mostly educational and a look into some interesting facts about Bucs’ history and NFL quirks and oddities.
  • And to close us out for the day, a pair of fantasy football articles. The first is a debate for which young runner to take in dynasty leagues, and the choices are Trent Richardson and Doug Martin. (If you choose Martin, can you join my leagues? I need someone to finish in front of!) The second is a slightly older set of rankings from our friends at SideLion Report, where they have some unique ranks for some big name players. Check it out.

That’s it for today, but don’t forget to stop by #BucsBracket and vote in the Sweet 16 to pick your favorite Bucs of all-time.
