  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Gets big pick-six in win

    Barrett recorded two tackles, including a sack, and returned an interception for a touchdown against the Bears in a Week 2 victory Sunday.

    Barrett was on the field for just over half of Tampa Bay's defensive snaps and made the most of his playing time, registering a sack of Justin Fields early in the second quarter and notching a pick-six late in the fourth period to put the Bucs up by 10 points. The touchdown was the nine-year veteran's first in the NFL. The sack was also his first so far this season.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Feels 'close to 100 percent'

    Barrett, who suffered a torn Achilles in Week 8 last season, feels like he's already close to full health early in training camp, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Barrett is just a few days over nine months removed from his Oct. 27 Achilles tear, but he managed to avoid the active/PUP list to start training camp and then operated at full speed in the Buccaneers' first practice Wednesday. Barrett credits the team's medical and training staff for developing a plan that put him on pace to be healthy for the start of camp and also allow him to immediately begin participating without restrictions mentally. "All of the running and the change of direction stuff I've been doing with the trainers helped me get a level of confidence in myself," he said. "So, it's just a matter of getting out here and going against an offensive tackle and getting some pressure against me while I'm trying to turn the corner."
