  • Buccaneers' K.J. Britt: Ready for bigger role

    Head coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that Britt is ready to become a three-down defensive player in 2024, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Britt has also demonstrated a better grasp of the mental part of the game, according to Bowles. The 24-year-old recorded 29 tackles (16 solo) and one pass defensed last season. He looks poised to take on a bigger role in the upcoming campaign, likely as a starter at inside linebacker next to Lavonte David.

The third-year pro's numbers were all the more surprising considering he filled a rotational role for the third time in as many pro seasons in 2023, posting 29 tackles (16 solo) and one defensed pass over 16 games. Britt, a 2021 fifth-round pick, heads into the final year of his rookie contract in 2024 and could have an inside track on replacing Devin White next season if the latter is allowed to walk in free agency.

  • Buccaneers' K.J. Britt: Limited to start week

    Britt was knocked out of the Bucs' Week 13 win over the Panthers early in the first quarter after sustaining a back injury. He played just seven snaps on defense and recorded two tackles, and because of the injuries to the Bucs' linebacker corps, safety Ryan Neal was forced to fill in alongside J.J. Russell for the rest of the game. Britt's limited session Wednesday could indicate that the back issue won't cause him to miss time, which is welcome news for the Bucs' defense with Devin White (foot) not participating in practice to start the week.
