With roughly half of training camp in the rearview mirror and the beginning of the regular season less than a month away, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fast-approaching some very important roster deadlines that loom on the horizon.
They have to decide who'll replace injured place-kicker Connor Barth, who was lost for the season after tearing his Achilles tendon at a charity basketball game last month. As it currently stands, their choices are either 10-year veteran Lawrence Tynes or Derek Dimke, entering his second year in the league.
Another interesting contest is at running back, where there are a bevy of capable backs vying to serve as the primary backup to Doug Martin. Then, there is the battle for the third receiver position between newcomer Kevin Ogletree and Tiquan Underwood.
Other pending decisions include who will win the starting spot at tight end between Tom Crabtree, Luke Stocker and Danny Noble, among others, as well as at outside linebacker where free-agent signee Jonathan Casillas and Dekoda Watson are locked in a heated competition.
With all of this in mind, here are the winners and losers from training camp, thus far.
