Which Buccaneers practice squad member will be the first to see the field?
I’m going to go bold here and pick a fan favorite. Riley Bullough, the star of Hard Knocks will get some regular season action this season.
Bullough became adored for his performances on Hard Knocks when he showed his strong passion for the game. Many wanted him to make the roster, but it was an uphill battle considering the depth Tampa had at the position.
Riley played hard every play but had lapses in coverage and at times looked gassed. He was solid, but he failed to make plays when it counted the most.
Bullough is an undrafted FA out of Michigan State. He displayed a great amount of leadership throughout training camp and I think that will give him the call up this season.

His leadership was highlighted in a team meeting, and was praised by Dirk Koetter and Jason Licht privately.
However, more than likely, an injury will lead to Bullough getting called up. Injuries occur often, and especially since the Buccaneers play 16-weeks in a row, they may want to call up some fresh bodies.
I see no reason why Bullough can’t be one of them. It’ll be only be a matter of time before “Joe Dirt” hits the field.
