ON THIS DAY IN BUCCANEER HISTORY August 22, 1987  Tampa Bay 29 NY Jets 27 Steve DeBerg threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Phil Freeman with 3:38 left in the game to give the Bucs a win in their home pre-season opener under Ray Perkins.   This was also the first chance for Tampa fans to see No.1 overall pick Vinny Testaverde in action and naturally he threw an interception to help set up the Jets’ first touchdown.

BUCS TRADE FOR RISHAW JOHNSON The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making good on their promise to continue trying to build their talent base at the guard position.   On Thursday, the team traded safety Kelcie McCray to the Kansas City Chiefs for guard prospect Rishaw Johnson.   An Ole Miss product, Johnson (6-foot-5, 313 pounds) signed as an undrafted free agent with Seattle in 2012 and played for the Chiefs in 2013. “We said we’d continue to look for players that we think will help our football team, so we’re pretty excited about getting Rishaw here into the mix,’’ Bucs coach Lovie Smith said.   “He’ll be a guard for us, but he’s played a little bit of center, also. So, he gives us a little bit of flexibility there. He’s a big athlete, young, looks pretty good on video.   Whenever you get a chance to add a big, young athlete you have to be excited about that. Being on an active roster for a while with Seattle and Kansas City, we know those guys, and, of course, he’s a good player.’’
