Here is the Buccaneers unofficial depth chart for the season opener against the Cowboys. The biggest surprise is the current starting tailback, who ended last season injured.


Here is the Buccaneers unofficial depth chart when the team opens the season against the Dallas Cowboys. The biggest surprise is who is currently listed as the starting tailback, but what a nice surprise it is. Rookie Sammie Stroughter takes over the second kick return spot alongside with Clifton Smith. Also, it looks like the team expects Talib to not be suspended by the league. With the loss of Tanard Jackson for four games, Talib is desperately needed in the secondary especially with the team only carrying three safeties on the roster. Jermaine Phillips steps back into the safety position while Geno Hayes will get a chance to claim the starting linebacker job as his own.
