The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently brought in former Chicago Bears back up Josh McCown in hopes of putting up some huge numbers this season.
Last year they had a terrible fall out with former starting quarterback Josh Freeman and faced a couple of MRSA cases that sidelined a couple players. So it’s safe to say that they were pretty much cursed, which is too bad.
This was a team that I was very excited about watching coming into the 2013 season. I figured they would compete for the NFC South after bulking up their defense but things didn’t work out that way. Now if you want to be able to have a successful passing game like the Chicago Bears did in Chicago, you’re going to need some solid protection.
According to Scott Smith on Twitter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers added offensive tackle/guard Oniel Cousins. Cousins started four games at right guard for the Cleveland Browns last season and needs to work on his pass protection.
Bucs working thru the weekend: The team has agreed to terms with former Cleveland guard Oniel Cousins on a 1-year deal.

Cousins was hurried more than 15 times through 295 snaps so it’s obvious he needs to improve his frame and foot work even though he only gave up one sack.
