Bucs' Minicamp Notes

With the Bucs' minicamp underway at IMG Performance Institute in Bradenton, reports have been flooding in about the events there. Pewter Report has been keeping their Twitter account up to date, Stephen Holder is making notes on his Twitter account, JoeBucsFan is updating their site and the Tampa Tribune is updating its Twitter page and its blog. If you want to get up to the minute updates, follow those guys, otherwise you can keep reading for the most important things to take away from this minicamp. 

  • Some 40-50 players are attending. 
  • Gerald McCoy is showing his leadership skills, leading the defensive line drills and teaching younger players. 
  • For the Offensive Line, Davin Joseph is the one leading drills, and he's incredible shape. The same thing goes for Jeremy Trueblood
  • McCoy has also re-shaped his body, becoming bigger in his upper body but leaner around his midsection. Earlier reports had said that McCoy was working on becoming faster and on his upper body strength, and this looks like the result. 
  • Aqib Talib is training, Tanard Jackson is on the roster to participate. 
  • Most free agents showed up, but Cadillac Williams and Barrett Ruud are not present for now. 
  • Legarrette Blount is also absent. 
  • Having recovered from injuries, Gerald McCoy and Cody Grimm are participating in drills and look 100%. Arrelious Benn is also participating, but does not look full speed. 
  • Kareem Huggins and Brian Price are present but not participating in drills. 
  • Rookies Mason Foster and Adrian Clayborn are participating, dispite earlier reports that rookies would attend the symposium instead. Seems these two value the team work more, which should give them a headstart going into the season. Both look to be in 'incredible shape'.
