Rick Stroud from the Tampa Bay Times joined Dukes and Bell to talk about the latest with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Stroud on Gerlad McCoy wanting to 'put a stamp' on this season, “A lot of guys are approaching this final game like professionals and these guys know their tape is their resume.”

Stroud when asked about Desean Jackson wanting out of Tampa Bay, “I think he is gone this offseason. He developed some really bad habits. He is a celebrity that plays football. Once the Bucs went back to Jameis (Winston) Desean seemed disinterested. He has already sold his house in Tampa so I think he is gone.”

Stroud on Winston’s future, “I think they want him back and they want to see what he does in that 5th year. But it will be interesting to see what happens to him if Dirk Koetter is let go.”

Stroud went on to talk about the lackluster rookie season from Ronald Jones and the lack of development on the defensive side of the football.
