2017 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Season 42 Brief

Our 2017 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season is the franchise's 42nd season in the National Football League, the 20th playing home games at Raymond James Stadium and the second under head coach Dirk Koetter.

On March 9, 2017, the Buccaneers signed former Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson, defensive tackle Chris Baker, former Dallas Cowboys safety J. J. Wilcox (traded to Pittsburgh Steelers), and former New York Jets kicker Nick Folk.

The team was hampered with poor performance and an early kicking situation, as they failed to improve or match their 9–7 record from the previous season. After a loss to the Detroit Lions, they were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs with a 4–9 record. This is their tenth consecutive season without a playoff appearance, with their last being in the 2007 season. Also, the Buccaneers with a record of 5-11-0 finished last in the NFC South for the seventh time in nine seasons.

HBO featured the Buccaneers in preseason on its HBO's Hard Knocks show.

The first transactions of the year occurred shortly after the conclusion of the 2016 regular season on January 2, 2017, when the Buccaneers signed offensive lineman Josh Allen, safety Isaiah Johnson, offensive lineman Mike Liedtke, cornerback Cody Riggs, running back Blake Sims, and tight end Tevin Westbrook to reserve/futures contracts.

On January 4, the Bucs signed tight end Kivon Cartwright and kicker John Lunsford to reserve/futures contracts. On January 5, the Bucs signed Edmonton Eskimos wide receiver Derel Walker, Saskatchewan Roughriders Jeff Knox Jr and guard Jarvis Harrison.

On September 3, the club signed T. J. Ward, previously with Denver, for a one-year deal worth $5 million.

After a bye in Week 1 due to Hurricane Irma, Tampa Bay began their season in Week 2 against Chicago. Jameis Winston threw for 204 yards and 1 touchdown pass to Mike Evans, as the Buccaneers routed the Bears 29-7. Bears quarterback (and former Buccaneer) Mike Glennon lost a fumble, and threw two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown.

Week 3, Before the game, wide receivers Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson participated in "National Anthem Gate" by kneeling during the national anthem after comments made by president Donald Trump about national anthem protests two days prior. The Vikings jumped out to a 28-3 lead by the third quarter, while the Buccaneers defense could not contain Case Keenum, who threw for 369 yards and three touchdown passes. After quarterback Jameis Winston threw his second interception, a frustrated Evans was seen kicking over the ice tub on the sidelines.

In Week 15, after losing our fourth straight game it marked the first time since 2014 where the Bucs didn't win at least one of the two games against the Falcons. Jameis Winston played, arguably, his best game of the season finishing 27/35 on passes, throwing three touchdowns with no interceptions. A late fourth quarter pass to Adam Humphries brought the Bucs within three points, but kicker Pat Murray missed a 54-yard field goal with 0 seconds remaining to seal the loss. The Bucs move to 4-10 on the season, with the last two games being against division rivals New Orleans and Carolina.

In Week 16, The Buccaneers dropped their fifth straight for the second time this season. With this loss, the Bucs have had 7 of their 11 losses come by 7 points or less.

New Years Eve, last game of the 2017 season and the Buccaneers were ready to battle the final stand at home against the New Orleans Saints and the BuccaneersFans were not disapointed at all with a season ending victory 31-24.

Raymond James, repair the sails, scrub the barnacles, ready the cannons and order the gun-powder... 2018 we are ready.
