The Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the NFL in 1976.

  • Since then Peyton Barber Jersey , the Bucs have drafted 25 quarterbacks. And they’ve never signed any of them to a second contract.Two years ago, when the Bucs were surging and Jameis Winston was generating fringe MVP chatter, it looked like that trend would end. Currently, it’s looking like there won’t be a second contract for Winston, after all.Benched after a disastrous four-interception performance against the Bengals, Winston now has to process failure while still being ready to succeed if needed. As former Bucs coach Tony Dungy explained on Tuesday’s PFT Live, Winston needs to realize that 31 other teams are watching him now, and that he needs to conduct himself accordingly. That means becoming the best backup quarterback he can be, helping starter Ryan Fitzpatrick while being prepared at all times to play after any/every snap.Considering the history of Bucs quarterbacks Authentic Ryan Smith Jersey , Winston would be wise to take Dungy’s advice to heart. After all, three quarterbacks drafted by the Bucs — Doug Williams (first round in 1978), Steve Young (supplemental first round in 1984), and Trent Dilfer (first round in 1994) — went on to win Super Bowls with other teams.Here’s another piece of advice that someone needs to give to Winston: Quit trying to do more than you’re physically able to do. One of the most important skills for any athlete is to realize the limits of athletic ability. Winston all too often tries to make plays he just isn’t capable of making, creating an ungainly, awkward moment that leaves him more frustrated than Michael Scott while playing basketball.For now, Winston won’t be playing anything. When the chance to play arises again, and it will, he needs to display at all times an appreciation of the line that separates the things he can do from the things he can’t do Youth Justin Evans Jersey , and to stay on the right side of that line. Tennessee cornerback Adoree Jackson was flipping for joy after a couple of interceptions defending Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and the rest of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The 18th pick overall in 2017 by the Titans, Jackson celebrated picking off a pass to DeSean Jackson Thursday in a one-on-one drill with a flip. With few people on the far side of the field watching, Jackson made sure to flip again after intercepting a pass intended for Tampa Bay tight end O.J. Howard."Back home, they'd give me a 10," Jackson said. "If I was in the Olympics, I probably wouldn't get a high score I don't think. I didn't stick my landing correctly. I didn't do the right things. I didn't tuck or none of that. Everybody said they were scared when I was in the air. ... I'd have gave me a seven."Titans coach Mike Vrabel has no issue with how Jackson likes to celebrate big plays."If he wants to backflip after he intercepts the ball or bats it down, I'm all for it," Vrabel said.The Buccaneers and Titans wrapped up their second joint practice Thursday in a prelude to their exhibition game Saturday night , and these sessions have provided a good preseason test for a Tennessee secondary that wants to be one of the NFL's best, if not the best, against a group of wide receivers that helped Tampa Bay rank fourth in the NFL last season in passing offense.Evans and his teammates got the best of the Titans on Wednesday with Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter noting that offense should beat defense in 1-on-1 drills. Koetter thought his receivers came out "smoking" with Evans having a really good practice."They've got good corners, we've got good receivers," Koetter said. "It's fun to watch those guys compete."The Titans bounced back Thursday, setting a tone in 1-on-1s with Malcolm Butler breaking up a pass to DeSean Jackson. That's the drill where Butler's teammate used a tip from fellow cornerback Logan Ryan to watch for a specific move. Jackson turned, got his left hand in tipping the ball to himself for the interception."Kudos to Logan for getting me in position, and I just had to make the play," the Titans cornerback said.The 6-foot-5 Evans gave Tennessee a strong test at 6-foot-5 with at least 1 O. J. Howard Jersey ,000 yards receiving in each of his first four seasons. Evans also gave the Titans defensive backs a good review."Oh, I like them," Evans said. "Butler, physical, experienced corner. Adoree Jackson, hell of an athlete, and Logan Ryan he has game. Very experienced, very smart."Adoree Jackson called the joint practices a lot of competition with both teams pitting their first-team units against each other."You're fired up," Jackson said. "You're trying to show out Authentic Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , they're trying to show out. They're trying to expose you, you're trying to expose them, and it's all about getting better. Man, I feel like I sweated more in these joint practices than I did my whole life."Both Vrabel and Koetter made it clear before these practices to avoid fighting, and they were successful with the exception of back-to-back plays with the Titans' first-team offense on the field.Bucs safety Chris Conte hit Titans running back Dion Lewis hard, prompting pushing and shoving. Vrabel and Titans general manager Jon Robinson both ran in to break it up. On the next play with Derrick Henry running, the Titans and Bucs pushed and shoved each other again.NOTES: Bucs rookie Alex Cappa worked at right guard with the first-team after Caleb Benenoch got a bit banged up in the first team period. Koetter said Bennenoch returned. ... Bucs CB Ryan Smith went inside with trainers, and Koetter did not have an update. ... Titans TE Delanie Walker walked gingerly inside with a team doctor after a catch across the middle.Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalker
