Saturday For The Bubble Players
August 17th, 2021
Last week Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians believed he already knows of roughly 35 players who will be on the Bucs’ final-53 man roster next month.
And it seems as if most of those guys will have Saturday night off.
Arians has spoken the past couple of days he expects a very physical two days of practice with the Titans who come to town tomorrow for controlled scrimmages leading up to the preseason game Saturday night.
Arians hinted because of the expected physical nature of the controlled scrimmages, he wasn’t keen on getting many of his players beat up a third time in four days. So yesterday he told the local pen and mic club he doesn’t think any starter will play on Saturday night.
In answering a question about the possibility of Tom Brady playing Saturday, Arians admitted he very much doubted it and added, “We probably won’t play any starters.”
So Saturday is for the bubble players. Guys who don’t have jobs locked up quite yet.
Joe is very interested to see how Ryan Griffin and Kyle Trask play.
Last week Griffin didn’t have the best of evenings against Cincinnati’s camp meat. Facing future Skyline Chili ladlers, Trask, though No. 4 on the Bucs’ depth chart, fared better.
