Checking in on the quarterbacks in the NFC South

Sonja Greenfield, OTFB Reporter

I’ve hit the NFC North and NFC East.  This week, I head down to the durrty south.

These quarterbacks are about as stable as they get, outside of Tampa Bay, and even that’s not that truly unstable.   Despite quarterback Jameis Winston‘s issues, he’s still in the mix.

So, lets look at Winston, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, and Cam Newton and ask the question, “What will 2019 look like for these quarterbacks?”

Since I’ve mentioned Winston, let’s start with Tampa Bay.

How the offseason is shaping up for Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sonja Greenfield, OTFB Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

On an OurTurf podcast earlier this year, I spoke with my fellow reporters about what coaching job I felt would be a good situation to get into.  Dayna and I agreed:  Tampa Bay.

There are no sky-high expectations because they finished last in their division.  They have a decent group of players that they can work with.  Players such as two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans, linebacker Lavonte David, and a pretty solid defensive corps with players such as defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul, Carl Nassib, and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy

There’s a lot of good groundwork that can be built upon, that new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles can take advantage of.  Granted, McCoy could be leaving Tampa Bay, however, that would give them about $13 million in cap room, should they do that.  That would also allow their 2018 1st round pick, DT Vita Vea a good chance to shine, even though last season he was hampered by injury.

Tampa Bay fires head coach Dirk Koetter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

Three years into his head coaching tenure, the Buccaneers have parted ways with head coach Dirk Koetter.

Their former offensive coordinator was promoted to Head Coach in 2016. The thought was that he and their draft pick, quarterback Jameis Winston would grow together and get this thing off the ground in Tampa.

Unfortunately, it didn’t work.  Koetter’s tenure started off pretty well in 2016.  The Buccaneers finished with a 9-7 record and 2nd in the division, Winston even made the Pro Bowl.

However, after that, things started not going so well.

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Tampa Bay Buccanneers quarterback Jameis Winston was hoping that his past actions would somehow get lost in mini-camp news, but that was not the case.  On Thursday, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter tweeted this:

Winston is being investigated by the league for a possible incident that occurred more than two years ago.
