the team announced on Wednesday.,Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo has signed a reserve/future contract with the Los Angeles Chargers
Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said a point of emphasis this offseason will be finding a consistent kicker who can stick around long term.
The Bolts used five kickers in 2017 -- including punter Drew Kaser -- and finished at a league-low 67 percent on field goal attempts. Aguayo spent time on the Carolina Panthers' practice squad after being cut by both the Buccaneers and Chicago Bears before the season.
The Bucs traded into the second round of the 2016 draft to select Aguayo, making him the highest-drafted kicker since Mike Nugent in 2005. Aguayo struggled in his only season with the Buccaneers, however, missing nine field goal attempts and two extra point attempts.
Chargers general manager Tom Telesco took blame for the Chargers' struggles at kicker during the 2017 season while talking to reporters at an end-of-season news conference.
"One of my biggest regrets this year [is] I did not do a good enough job addressing that position, Anthony," Telesco said. "I kind of put our head coach, in a tough position as far as managing the football game. So, it happens. I'm not really happy about it. We'll assess where we were, and we'll get it fixed."
Aguayo likely will have some competition. The Chargers still have Nick Rose under contract from last season. They claimed Rose off waivers after the Washington Redskins released him in Week 16.
And Telesco said it's possible the Chargers bring back veteran Nick Novak and let Kaser handle kickoffs.
The top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles will kick off their postseason against the sixth-seeded Atlanta Falcons as rare home underdogs for Saturday's NFC Divisional Round matchup. The Eagles have not been home dogs in the playoffs since 2000, when they upset the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21-3, while the Falcons are listed as road chalk in the postseason for the first time.
according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.,NFL point spread: The Falcons opened as 2.5-point favorites; the total was 44 early in the week
McCoy finished the 2017 season with his lowest sack total in five years,Authentic O. J. Howard Jersey, racking up just six. However, he did manage to notch 24 quarterback hits this season as he anchored Tampa Bay’s struggling defense which as a unit managed to accumulate just 22 sacks.
McCoy was also hit with a biceps injury and missed Tampa Bay’s matchup versus the Falcons in Week 15 which obviously contributed to his lack of production. But the veteran defensive tackle still managed to be a dominant force for the Bucs this season despite the defense’s severe issues generating an effective pass rush and pressuring quarterbacks.
McCoy was clearly upset about not being voted an All-Pro this season and hopefully missing out will only fuel his drive to anchor Tampa Bay’s defense new to heights this year.,Authentic Justin Evans Jersey,As you can see
Olson, working with coach Sean McVay and offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur,Authentic Chris Godwin Jersey, helped quarterback Jared Goff develop into a top-10 passer this season.
Gruden, who gave McVay his first coaching job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,Authentic Kendell Beckwith Jersey, made the announcement during an introductory news conference in Oakland. Gruden cited Olson’s experience coaching Raiders quarterback Derek Carr when he was the team’s offensive coordinator in 2014.
“His intel there will be very important,” Gruden said. “He coached with me in Tampa and he coached with Sean McVay,Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey, one of my ex-assistants in L.A., so the system of football that we run there will be a real natural flow.”

"Great coach, great motivator, great teacher in terms of just understanding the big picture, great leader,” McVay said this week when Gruden’s hiring was imminent. “He's gotten exposed to a lot of different things.
will he run the same offense that he was running when I got a chance to work with him in Tampa? Or will he now implement some of the different things that he's had a chance to kind of continue to get exposure to over the last handful of years?,“I'll be interested to see
hate the fact that the we'll have to go against his next year. It will be fun. But he's a great coach and you see why Oakland is so excited about being able to get him back to the Raiders.",“Either way
Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Dirk Koetter has been retained and will serve as the head ball coach once again for the 2018 NFL season. The Glazer family and general manager Jason Licht made the decision to keep him and informed him of the news prior to the Bucs’ win over the New Orleans Saints.
expectations to meet and a ton of work. He has already begun addressing the team’s needs for the upcoming season. Koetter took some time to discuss those concerns during a press conference before the season officially came to an end.,Koetter knows very well that he has a lot to prove
” Koetter said. “The No. 2 biggest issue is we can’t get pressure with a four-man rush. I’m not telling anybody any big secrets here. Those were our two biggest things that need to be addressed.”,“Score more points — that is one issue
Koetter also made it clear the Bucs plan to work on addressing those concerns this offseason through the draft and free agency to have a much better 2018 campaign — hopefully one that ends in a long-awaited playoff berth.
it’s incredibly evident that he also has plenty of areas he needs to continue working on.,Although Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has accomplished quite a few milestones in his young career
Winston finished this season completing 3,504 passing yards and 19 touchdown throws for a 92.2 quarterback rating. He has now thrown for 11,Womens Mike Evans Jersey, which is more yards than any player in his first three NFL seasons except Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck. However,636 passing yards in his NFL tenure,Womens O. J. Howard Jersey, the biggest concern surrounding Winston is the fact that he’s a turnover machine.
The young quarterback finished the year with 11 interceptions and 10 fumbles in 13 games which is a major issue that needs to be addressed this offseason and sooner rather than later.
Bucs coach Dirk Koetter discussed Winston’s issues with turning the ball over and how the team plans to address the concern this offseason before the start of next season.,Therefore
“Turnovers are the number one thing that get you beat,Womens Justin Evans Jersey, so I’m very concerned, Jameis knows that. He knows. Jameis is streaky with his turnovers. He can go three or four games and not turn the ball over and then [turn it over three times in another game]. It’s rare that you can overturn a negative turnover ratio. It’s definitely something that has to be corrected and that is one of the top things that would help us not be 3-7 in one-score games because they are hard to overcome when you don’t win the turnover [battle]. Most teams are in the 90 percent [range] when they win the turnover battle. We are real close to that.”,Womens Chris Godwin Jersey,” Koetter said. “Again
The good news is the Bucs will have plenty of time to address Winston’s struggles along with the recent of this team’s concerns before the season officially gets underway in a few months.
The NFL club took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon to offer its former coach a “welcome back.”
It had been reported from a number of media outlets that Gruden would return as coach and receive a formal introduction Tuesday during a news conference.
Gruden had said earlier Saturday during a national broadcast of the AFC wild-card game between the Titans and Chiefs in Kansas City that “nothing’s official yet” when play-by-play broadcaster Sean McDonough wished him well in his new endeavour.
