Tampa Bay Buccaneers' projected roster
By Pat Yasinskas
Examining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' roster:
McCown is getting all the first-team work and has looked sharp. The Bucs aren't likely to keep a third quarterback on the 53-man roster.
RUNNING BACKS (6)
The Bucs are infatuated with Demps' speed, but it remains to be seen if he can do enough to earn a roster spot.
The slot receiver position is wide open and can be claimed by whoever has the best camp.
TIGHT ENDS (3)
Veteran Luke Stocker is very much on the bubble.
OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (9)
The departure of Carl Nicks leaves the team short at guard. The Bucs may look for help from the outside.
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN (9)
Bowers, who never has lived up to his potential, is on the hot seat. He needs a strong camp to secure a roster spot.
The Bucs still could use a little stronger depth at this position.
Leonard Johnson looks like the early favorite to claim the nickelback job.
Goldson's looking to bounce back after a rough first year with the Bucs. Wright and Tandy provide solid depth.
This won’t change unless there’s an injury.
