"Bucs Buzz" is your daily dose of headlines on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from news outlets all over the internet. Check here every day to get your dose of the "Buzz."
The Tampa-area media is in full throttle now that camp has started. In the Tampa Tribune, Roy Cummings wrote about the pressure on Gaines Adams and Patrick Chukwurah, now that Simeon Rice is gone. Anwar Richardson wrote about the shock players felt after Rice's release. And columnist Joe Henderson talked to Derrick Brooks, who saw Rice's release as a reminder that no one's job is safe.
In the St. Petersburg Times, the veterans talk about the sting of seeing Rice go. Rice himself actually said that if the Bucs had shown him more respect, he probably would have stayed. And columnist Gary Shelton writes that first-round pick Gaines Adams is now expected to carry a, much heavier load.
The Tennessee Titans are interested in bringing Rice to their roster, according to the Associated Press. For that matter, so have the New York Giants, who may lose their sack master, Michael Strahan to retirement, says the Newark Star-Ledger. And a lot would have to happen for Rice to join his former mentor, Rod Marinelli, in Detroit, writes the Detroit Free-Press.
Chris Harry had his own take on the Rice repercussions, complete with words from Gaines Adams in this article in the Orlando Sentinel. And there are other players at Bucs camp, as Harry writes that quarterback Jeff Garcia enjoyed the tempo of his first camp workout.
