Episode 33: Discussing the Departure of Darrelle Revis
Ken and Leo spent the last episode discussing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offseason changes, but they avoided talking about one specific topic. Darrelle Revis. So for this episode, the guys talk about the decision to cut Darrelle Revis after failed attempts to trade him. Where do the Bucs go from here without one of the best players of this generation? Did the Buccaneers make the right move in simply cutting Revis? Have they done enough with other free agent signings to make up for losing the best player at corner in the NFL? If you thought Ken sounded upset in the last episode, just wait until you listen to this one!

Episode 32: Free Agency Recap: Discussing the Newest Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ken and Leo are back to discuss all of the changes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers now that the initial flurry of roster moves have been made during the 2014 free agency frenzy. The guys consider the addition of Michael Johnson, and if he can be the elite pass rusher that Lovie Smith wants in his defense. Can Clinton McDonald give the Buccaneers their money's worth as an interior disruption on passing downs? They also consider Alterraun Verner, and while not comparing him to any previous Buccaneers (that comes in another podcast), the guys discuss the playmaking ability and contract of the Bucs' newest defensive back. (Note: This podcast was recorded before Evan Dietrich-Smith was signed.) (Note: Discussion of Darrelle Revis and the impact of his departure will happen on the next podcast.)

Special Episode 5: Talking NFL Draft with Ben Natan
Ben Natan of WithTheFirstPick.com joined Leo for a special episode of the podcast to discuss the NFL Draft and some of the prospects that he likes, and doesn't like in this year's class. The guys begin by discussing the top quarterbacks in this draft, as Ben reveals the one quarterback (and only one quarterback) he'd take with a top-10 pick. Ben and Leo then discuss the other options the Buccaneers will have at the seventh spot in the draft. Can Khalil Mack fit the Buccaneers' defense? Which tackle is better, Jake Matthews or Greg Robinson? And is Sammy Watkins a sure-fire star in the NFL who is ready to have an "elite" impact? Finally, the guys discuss some of Ben's favorite mid to late round players, to give you some insight into some less-talked about players who may surprise you in the NFL.

Episode 31: What Does the Future Hold for Penn, Joseph and the Bucs Offensive Line?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled a new logo and helmet this past week, but as Ken and Leo discuss on this episode of the podcast, that won't be the last change the Buccaneers make this summer. Discussions are raging on among Buccaneer fans about Donald Penn, Carl Nicks, Davin Joseph and the Buccaneers' offensive line. What do the guys think about the disappointing front line for the 2013 Bucs? Ken and Leo discuss Penn's level of play, Joseph's contract and Carl Nicks' injury status, and look ahead to the NFL Draft and if adding a left tackle via the draft makes sense.

What do the Buccaneers have in Mike Glennon, and what are others seeing in him that the writers of The Pewter Plank don't?
