Tampa Bay Buccaneers Notes from May 27 OTAs

Organized team activities, or more commonly known as OTAs, are in full effect and Lovie Smith’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers were on the field once again today.

As per usual, it comes with lots of nuggets, so here’s the latest courtesy of the Bucs beat reporters:

The Bucs seem to be dealing with a number of injuries right now. While Jackson and Evans’ injuries don’t appear to be at all serious, the concern around Nicks continues to grow. Seferian-Jenkins shouldn’t have problems once his foot heals, and Dashon Goldson, who is also on the shelf right now with a foot injury, hopes to be back by training camp.

Without Jackson, Evans, and Seferian-Jenkins to pass to, it was nice to see Owusu step up and catch the eye of his coaches. He has raw talent but has shown promise in the small playing time he has had during his NFL career.

The quarterback situation will come down to whether the Bucs want to carry either Mike Kafka or Alex Tanney on the active roster. Obviously, Josh McCown and Mike Glennon have guaranteed spots on the team.

The next OTA session for the Bucs is expected to take place on Tuesday, June 3.
