    Pat Yasinskas

    TAMPA, Fla. - When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left Solomon Patton off their 53-man roster, they seemingly left the kickoff and punt-return jobs wide open. Patton handled the duties through much of the preseason and had fared pretty well. The common ...

  2. Bucs overloaded at running back

    Pat Yasinskas

    The most common post-draft question I'm getting is why did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers use a third-round draft pick on West Virginia running back Charles Sims. The Bucs already had Doug Martin, Mike James, Bobby Rainey and Jeff Demps on the roster, s...

    Pat Yasinskas

    TAMPA, Fla. -- The common theme emerging from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' search for a general manager is that they're looking for someone who hasn't held that title before. The reported candidates include Lake Dawson, Lionel Vital, Marc Ross, Tom G...

  4. Saints need to figure out Vaccaro's role

    Pat Yasinskas

    With the New Orleans Saints' selection of Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro, there's a common assumption that either strong safety Roman Harper or free safety Malcolm Jenkins will be on the way out. But I'm not so sure that's the case. I think the Saints...

  5. Could Ronde Barber play elsewhere?

    Pat Yasinskas

    There's a very common assumption that veteran defensive back Ronde Barber either will return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or retire. Those clearly are the two leading scenarios, but let me throw out one more that is purely hypothetical. What if ...

  6. Bucs, Falcons make most of injuries

    Pat Yasinskas

    When a team's season goes bad, one common response is to point to injuries. Sometimes that holds merit and sometimes it doesn't. We don't have to look any further than the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers to see that. At least at the ...

  7. Could Panthers be active at trade deadline?

    Pat Yasinskas

    The NFL's trading deadline is next Tuesday. Historically, not a lot happens because trades aren't as common in the NFL as they are in the NBA and Major League Baseball. Still, it's fun to speculate about potential trades. Plus, I think this is one...

  9. Saints not alone in bounty charges

    Pat Yasinskas

    Ever since March 2, when the NFL first publicly accused the New Orleans Saints of running a bounty program, I've heard a lot of common refrains. One of them has been, "Oh, that happens everywhere." I kept waiting to hear that another NFL team w...

  10. Comparing Claiborne to Peterson

    Pat Yasinskas

    Morris Claiborne is the best cornerback in this year's draft. Patrick Peterson was the best cornerback in last year's draft. Besides that, they've got a lot in common. Both played at LSU. Peterson went No. 5 overall to the Arizona Cardinals. Claib...

  11. Why not Blackmon to Bucs, Panthers?

    Pat Yasinskas

    There are pretty common assumptions among Tampa Bay and Carolina fans that the Bucs will take either LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne or Alabama running back Trent Richardson with the fifth overall pick in the draft and Carolina will take a defensive ...

  12. Saints taking center stage at 4 p.m.

    Pat Yasinskas

    One common complaint we talk about often in these parts is how the NFC South sometimes gets lost in the shadows of divisions or teams with bigger markets and higher profiles. Well, maybe we should be careful what we wish for. The NFC South is abou...

  14. Wrap-up: Panthers 38, Buccaneers 19

    Pat Yasinskas

    Thoughts on the Carolina Panthers' 38-19 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. What it means: Both teams are 4-8, but that's about the only thing the teams have in common these days. This was a big step for t...

  16. Saints have good history against winless

    Pat Yasinskas

    The New Orleans Saints' next two games are against Indianapolis and St. Louis. If the common thread those teams share right now didn't set off any bells, let me fill you in. The Colts and Rams are both winless. That obviously means these games sho...
