Buccaneers monster reports to OTAs more hugely humongous than usual

Vita Vea arrived at Tampa Bay Buccaneers OTAs looking heavier than usual. Luckily this is nothing to be alarmed at for the Buccaneers monster in the middle.

During the dog days of summer, you have to take what you can get when it comes to NFL news. Organized team activities have begun, which means that the first glimpses of players, new and old, to their teams are made available. The Bucs are no different, and according to the Pewter Report, the first look at Vea raised some eyebrows

Again, it’s a slow news period. However, this writer’s love for Tevita Tuliʻakiʻono Tuipulotu Mosese Vaʻhae Fehoko Faletau Vea is no secret so any excuse to write about Mr. Vea is gonna be taken.

Now onto the issue that’s tipping the scales.

Even if Vea looks a little “hefty”, or even “broad in the beam” he has a lot of time to drop the pounds. Besides, he’ll be working out all offseason in Florida, so any water weight will be sweat out. Also, his gargantuan girth is what makes him special. He uses his god-given size and strength to single-handily create gridlock along the line of scrimmage. It helps not only him thrive, but the rest of the defense as there are fewer blockers to go around.

People will grasp at anything for NFL stories now that the Draft is in the rearview mirror. Vea has nothing to worry about, and neither do the Buccaneers or their fans. Then again, here we are commenting on it. Is that irony?

Vea also said during OTA’s that he is hungry for another chance at the Los Angeles Rams after they sent the Bucs packing in the divisional round of the playoffs, plus handing the Buccaneers a regular-season loss. That’s the only thing related to eating that is notable in regards to Vita Vea.
