We’re halfway through the preseason and the Buccaneers are playing host to the Cleveland Browns Friday evening at Raymond James Stadium.
This is typically the week where we see the majority of the starters playing. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case this time around under new head coach Bruce Arians. This past week, Arians spoke on whether or not the starters would play a good chunk of the game. But there is nothing definitive and it looks like they will wait and see how the first couple of series progress.
One thing is for certain, we will not be seeing wide receiver Mike Evans. And quite frankly, we don’t have to.
