Buccaneers activate John Molchon off injured reserve

Coming off a long weekend following Thursday’s win over the Eagles, the Buccaneers have made a series of roster moves on Monday. Tampa Bay has activated guard John Molchon off injured reserve.

Amy Trask “repeatedly” reported Bruce Allen to Al Davis

The decision of the NFL to keep the outcome of the Washington Football Team investigation secret benefited many people whose behavior deserves to be exposed. It perhaps has benefited none more than former WFT president Bruce Allen. When the league first made it clear that nothing would be disclosed, owner Daniel Snyder got the brunt [more]

To overcome damaged vocal cords, Steve DeBerg had a speaker on his shoulder pads

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will play today, a week after suffering a throat contusion that sent him to the hospital.

Clay Martin’s intervention during live play isn’t uncommon, but definitely looked unusual

During Thursday night’s game between the Buccaneers and the Eagles, Fox cameras caught referee Clay Martin keeping Philadelphia defensive end Derek Barnett and Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady apart following a turnover.

Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard suffered a torn Achilles tendon against the Chargers last October. He made his official return to action in Week Two.

Thursday night’s game included a six-minute, five-second replay review

When it comes to the NFL’s replay-review process, two important things should be remembered. First, the ruling on the field should be overturned only if 50 drunks in a bar would agree that a mistake was made. Second, if it takes six minutes and five seconds to figure it out, 50 drunks in a bar [more]

Tom Brady suggests playing until 55

For years, Tom Brady has said that he’ll play 10 more years. He actually may play 10 more years.

Nick Sirianni: Taunting penalty was unacceptable, that falls on me

Perhaps the most significant of this NFL season’s many taunting penalties happened in the fourth quarter on Thursday night, when Philadelphia’s Genard Avery gave up 15 yards and an automatic first down for taunting Leonard Fournette.

Leonard Fournette: Having a year under my belt with Bucs makes a big difference

Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette made big contributions in last season’s playoffs to help win a Super Bowl and earn himself the “Playoff Lenny” nickname. “Regular Season Lenny” is proving to be pretty good this year.

Nick Sirianni doesn’t think he’s putting too much on Jalen Hurts

On a fourth quarter touchdown drive that cut the Buccaneers’ lead to six points, the Eagles handed the ball to Miles Sanders three times for a combined gain of 40 yards. It was an unusual amount of work for Sanders to get. He only carried the ball nine times all game as the Eagles continued [more]

Tom Brady’s thumb “felt great’ Thursday night

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady didn’t have any problem throwing the ball after hurting his right thumb on Sunday in Week Five and he didn’t have much issue with it a few days later either.
