Buccaneers HC Dirk Koetter was asked if he’s concerned about the team’s depth at any position and whether or not they’ll end up making more roster moves in the coming weeks.
“You’re never exactly where you want to be,” Koetter said, via Eric Horchy of PewterReport.com. “Every team has depth at some positions and not at others. We’re looking to add some pieces at a couple of spots, but you’re not going to add them this time of year. Some of those things aren’t going to happen until final cut-downs. Think about it, when you start going down from 90 to 53 and every team lets about 40 guys go, that’s a lot of good football players on the streets and there will be some guys out there at that time.”
Koetter added, “Of course we have a couple of spots, but for now our guys are our guys and we’re going to coach them up and they’re doing a good job of soaking it in.”
- Paul Schwartz writes that fifth-round RB Paul Perkins has the “inside track” to securing a roster spot this summer.
- This means that Andre Williams and Orleans Darkwa are on the hot seat and likely heading into training camp battling for the final running back spot on the roster.
