Top Coverage Players: Dane Fletcher, Jason Williams. Teams like SF and PHI have made significant investments in their core ST units by adding players who specialize in these areas. Both of the top two ST performers for the Bucs are UFAs and the team has already resigned Jason Williams.
Punter: Michael Koenen. Koenen has been a versatile kicker for TB, handling both Punts and Kickoffs for the Bucs. He was rewarded handsomely for his previous work, but has not matched the same performance, specifically with his Punting and as such does not warrant the same compensation. Tampa may be able to simply adjust his compensation, but they will most likely spend evaluation time on draft eligible Punters.
Long Snapper: Andrew DePaola. DePaola is a former Rutgers player and holdover from the Schiano days in Tampa. He has a functional snap, but lacks consistency, strength to block in the midline and displays below average coverage skills. Tampa should look to bring in camp competition at the position.
Place Kicker: Patrick Murray. Murray had a good year despite limited attempts and it is expected that he returns and that he will make a bigger contribution as the offense progresses.
