Which Buccaneers practice squad member will be the first to see the field?
When I look at the Buccaneers practice squad, it’s clear to me, Bobo Wilson needs to be the first to get regular season action.
This is for two reasons.
The first, is his potential on special teams. I’ve said many times over the past couple of seasons, the Bucs needed to get a stud at every position.

With the addition of T.J. Ward this past week, they now have one at all but two: kicker and return man.
Bernard Reedy and Adam Humphries are serviceable return guys, and both have had some plays close to breaking.
However, neither has the speed Wilson has, and lack the instant homerun potential.
The second reason is the way he went on to the practice squad. After blatantly ignoring the staff’s guidance to not leave the area, he did anyway. Then, it almost felt he thought he was too good for a practice squad spot.
Wilson didn’t paint himself in a very positive light during the preseason, and HBO’s Hard Knocks coverage only increased the visibility on his entitled behavior.
He needs to get on the field to prove his attitude has some real talent behind it, and the team needs him on the field to place Jameis Winston and his re-tooled offense in favorable positions on the field.
If the special teams return game doesn’t make an impact early, we may see Wilson on the field sooner, rather than later.
