Leftwich makes it rain TDs at Bucs practice

TAMPA, Fla. — A few observations from my visit to Buccaneers training camp today:

  • The team continued its morning practice after it was delayed 30 minutes by storms and lightning.
  • QB Byron Leftwich showed a nice red-zone touch on two scoring passes to TE Jeremy Stevens.
  • Defensive star of the morning practice: rookie CB E.J. Biggers. He is 6-foot and 180 pounds, but he leveled WR Dexter Jackson inside the 5-yard line down the sideline, breaking up a deep pass. It was a truly ferocious hit that every Bucs teammate and coach noticed. Then Biggers recovered a fumble. Active. A nose for the game. Not bad for a seventh-round draft pick.
  • New coach Raheem Morris is working on special teams in the middle of practice. This certainly lets players know its importance.
  • It’s easy to see why the Bucs remain excited about second-year QB Josh Johnson. At the position, he is a natural, smooth operator in his motions.
  • Linemen on both sides of the ball are having issues with snap counts and timing.
