The third day of Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp was the least eventful of the three by far, but had some new players show up, and saw the shoulder pads be put on and hits start to be dealt out by players.
Although there weren’t many especially explosive plays, there is often more to be said for what you do when you don’t touch the ball as much as there is when you do. I was again at this morning’s rainy practice in the stands and shot more videos of Bucs making plays, so let’s go ahead and break it down.
Wide Receiver Josh Huff
The Bucs signed Huff last season after he was released by the Eagles following an arrest on gun/marijuana related charges. Huff was a dynamic return threat for the Eagles and the Bucs were in dire need of one, so the needs matched. However, Huff’s impact was near-nonexistent last year, and he had issues on special teams at times. The team opted to give him another shot in camp this year, and despite the fact that he didn’t do much during the first two days of camp, Huff showed up nicely today.
This play was pretty simple — receivers coach Todd Monken was running players through a drill where they ran an outside dig route and despite a slightly overthrown ball, Huff made a great leap and extension for the ball to get it and stay in bounds.
Huff also consistently made nice catches over the middle of the field and didn’t have any drops on the day.
