Most teams try to hide big changes to the team’s depth chart. The Bucs announce the news as the top story on their team’s website, trying to build some excitement. (And we thank them for that.)
Heading into the team’s crucial third preseason game, the Bucs announced on Monday that Sean Jones has won the team’s starting strong safety spot over Sabby Piscatelli. The move is no surprise, but will surely draw cheers from Bucs fans.
At left guard, veteran Keydrick Vincent has passed Jeremy Zuttah. As the Bucs’ website is quick to point out, Vincent and Jones were key free agent acquisitions this offseason.
Bucs coach Raheem Morris said previously he wants to settle his position battles going into this week. It’s still unclear who the backup running back is, however. The St. Petersburg Times reports Kareem Huggins has drawn even with Derrick Ward, although the team’s website doesn’t reflect any change there.
