Youth Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , NovaCare Complex, PhiladelphiaLAST YEAR: Won first Super Bowl title and franchise's first NFL championship since 1960, defeating Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Patriots. Overcame losing several key players to injury, including QB Carson Wentz, LT Jason Peters, LB Jordan Hicks and others. Backup QB Nick Foles led way after Wentz tore ACL in Week 14, earning Super Bowl MVP honors. Coach Doug Pederson's offense was balanced yet aggressive. Players bought into team-first attitudes. Defense thrived under coordinator Jim Schwartz. DT Fletcher Cox anchored deep line that included Super Bowl hero Brandon Graham. Special teams were solid despite losing PR Darren Sproles. Rookie K Jake Elliott showed strong leg.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: DE Michael Bennett, DT Haloti Ngata, WR Mike Wallace, LB Corey Nelson, TE Richard Rodgers, rookie TE Dallas Goedert.IMPORTANT LOSSES: Offensive coordinator Frank Reich, QB coach John DeFilippo, TE Trey Burton www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com , RB LeGarrette Blount, DE Vinny Curry, CB Patrick Robinson, LB Mychal Kendricks, WR Torrey Smith, DT Beau Allen, TE Brent Celek, P Donnie Jones.CAMP NEEDS: Wentz will be closely monitored but there's no urgency to rush him with Foles still on team. His rehab will be biggest story this summer. Other key players returning from injury include Peters, Hicks, Sproles, special teams ace Chris Maragos and DT Tim Jernigan. Defense needs LB to emerge as replacement for Kendricks and CB to replace Robinson at nickel spot. Both QBs need to build chemistry with new Nos. 2-3 TEs.EXPECTATIONS: Trying to become first Super Bowl champs to repeat since 2003-04 Patriots, and anything less will be considered disappointment. Wentz, Peters and other star players who missed playoffs last year are determined to win it all and won't let teammates get complacent. Overall, team improved on paper but it'll be difficult to match unique bond last year's group had.Peyton Barber acknowledged as starting running back With the selection of Ronald Jones II in the second round of this year’s draft, it was clear that the Buccaneers were going to mix him into a one-two punch with third-year pro Peyton Barber. But what has seemed fairly unclear throughout the summer was which of the two would occupy the No. 1 spot. After Monday’s practice Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens T-Shirt , head coach Dirk Koetter acknowledged that Barber currently occupies the starting role. From Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times: Koetter appears to be sending mixed signals here, as he both names a starter and says there’s still time to sort things out. Regardless, it seems that Barber is making it hard for Jones to come in and take over as the lead guy, despite what many have predicted over the last few months. Koetter later made it obvious that Tampa Bay won’t be using a three-down back, noting how difficult it is to rely on just one guy with the way the NFL is nowadays. Barber got almost all of the snaps with the starting offense in the preseason opener against the Dolphins, rushing for 21 yards and a touchdown on four carries. In 2017, he was the lone bright spot in a poor Buccaneer backfield. He finished the year as the team’s leading rusher with 423 yards, averaging 3.9 yards per carry. Doug Martin had 30 more carries than him, but put up just 406 yards.Jones only nine yards on eight carries in last Thursday’s preseason opener, but did pick up his first touchdown. He saw most of his snaps behind a second team offensive line that was missing a few guys, so his lack of production shouldn’t be all that alarming.Rotating in behind Barber could be what’s best for the rookie as he continues to further develop as a pass-catcher and improve his pass-blocking. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get some snaps with the starters as the preseason rolls on, but it’s more than clear that the Bucs have no plans on phasing Barber out of the mix. For now, and potentially for the foreseeable future, Barber is the “one” in what should be a strong one-two threat.
