This year’s elections in the Buccaneers locker room have gone off without a hitch and with little surprises. The new team leaders will now be:
- Offensive captains are QB Josh McCown (#12) and WR Vincent Jackson (#83)
- Defensive captains are DT Gerald McCoy (#93) and LB Lavonte David (#54)
- Special Teams captain is P Michael Koenen (#9)
Head Coach Lovie Smith announced the captains at a press conference on Monday.
“Those will be our five captains for the year, and I do lean on them you know for a lot of things,” Smith said.
With that formality out of the way the Buccaneers can now focus on Sunday’s game against Carolina.
