THE 2021 BUCCANEER OPPONENTSThis season’s schedule will be a 17-game event as the NFL added a game that really counted and removed one of the meaningless pre-sesason games. The last change to the playing schedule came in 1978 when the NFL went from 14 to 16 games. This does mean an unbalanced schedule with half the teams playing an extra road game one season and then an extra home game the following year. The Bucs will fall into that nine road game group in 2021 with a trip to Indianapolis being added to their normal schedule that features the NFC North and the AFC East on the regular rota. The actual schedule will be announced on May 12.HOME GAMESROAD GAMES

1st ROUND PICK - OLB Joe Tryon6-5, 259, WashingtonThe Bucs positioned themselves to draft the best available player by re-signing all 22 Super Bowl starters on offense and defense. But there's a drop-off after Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul, with JPP entering the last year of his contract. Tryon's in a great spot to contribute right away to their pass rush without the pressure of starting right away.
