Revis, many Buccaneers get the night off

Darrelle Revis AP

The benefit of having 90-man rosters and four preseason games is that for the first one, participation is practically voluntary, and discouraged for anyone with so much as a bruise.

(Yet amazingly, the league continues to charge full fare for tickets).

In Tampa, a total of 13 Buccaneers players are getting the night off, the team announced.

Among those are cornerback Darrelle Revis, who may not play in the preseason at all, and if so, not for a few more weeks anyway. There’s no point rushing him back after his ACL, and the Bucs are taking the patient tack here.

They’re also going to be without starting guards Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph, defensive end Adrian Clayborn, tight end Luke Stocker, kicker Lawrence Tynes and seven other guys.

    Watching this game…. Danny Gorrer just nabbed a beautiful INT on the sideline off Flacco.

    Just like many Bucs fans took the night off as well. Enjoy another mediocre year full of black outs with your sorry team and bush league punk of coach.

    Won’t matter who it is, whether the starters or bench. The same outcome from a garbage team. Losing.

    Will never understand (or try to understand) trolls.

    Let those 2nd & 3rd stringers loose to get some real game exp against the world champ Ravens.

    We’ll likely need that depth for the playoff run once real fire starts.

    Go Bucs!

    The only lost 44-16. Slight improvement over last season’s 41-0 bomb against the Saints.

    Worst ownership and worst coach. Period. Help us NFL gods!

    Why is everyone on here bashing the Bucs??? Just because they don’t have enough money on their welfare check to make the game last night.
