  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Gets new competition from draft

    Palmer and rookie third-round pick Jalen McMillan are the top candidates for Tampa Bay's No. 3 receiver job, Joshua Queipo of PewterReport.com reports.

    Palmer, a 2023 sixth-round pick, held the role for nearly all of his rookie season, though he was perhaps miscast in the slot. New offensive coordinator Liam Coen said he wants to put Chris Godwin back in the slot as his primary alignment, which means the team's No. 3 receiver this upcoming season likely will play a majority of his snaps outside. While that's perhaps good news for Palmer given his speed (4.33-second 40-yard dash time at the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine) wheels, McMillan has decent speed in his own right (4.47-second 40-yard dash time) and is slightly taller and heavier (6-foot-1 and 197 pounds) than Palmer (six-foot, 192). There's also the matter of Palmer being a much later draft pick and then struggling with his opportunities as a rookie; he caught just 57.4 percent of his 68 targets and averaged 9.9 yards per catch.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Remaining in No. 3 role

    Palmer looks slated to run it back as the No. 3 wide receiver for Tampa Bay with Mike Evans having re-signed on a two-year deal and quarterback Baker Mayfield set to return via a three-year, $100 million contract, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

    Palmer will get a chance to build on a solid rookie season in which he logged a 39-385-3 line across 17 regular-season games, with another year to build offseason chemistry with Mayfield. The presence of two core wideouts in Evans and Chris Godwin will allow Palmer to focus on contributing as a complementary player, a role that could make better use of his field-stretching abilities than if the 2023 sixth-round pick had been asked to truly step up as a No. 2 receiver, had Evans been allowed to walk.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Pair of grabs to close out season

    Palmer brought in both targets for 32 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday.

    Palmer closed out his rookie campaign with a typical showing, making good use of a modest amount of opportunities with 23- and nine-yard grabs. The sixth-round pick followed up a 39-385-3 line across 17 regular-season games with a combined 3-88-1 tally in two postseason contests, and he could potentially be in line to assume a No. 2 role in 2024 if Mike Evans is allowed to walk in free agency this offseason.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Effective with two touches in win

    Palmer brought in one of two targets for a 56-yard touchdown and rushed once for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night.

    The speedy rookie was a hit in his first career postseason appearance, ripping off a touchdown late in the third quarter on which he broke a James Bradberry tackle attempt and then outraced multiple defenders to the end zone. Palmer has enjoyed a steady complementary role since Week 1, recording at least one catch in every regular-season game and multiple grabs in 12 contests, and he's now scored twice in the last three games. Palmer's field-stretching abilities could be a good fit for the fast track of Ford Field in Sunday's divisional-round battle against the Lions.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Pair of grabs in Week 18 win

    Palmer brought in two of six targets for 10 yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    The rookie finished third on the team in targets, but he wasn't overly efficient with them on an afternoon where Baker Mayfield threw for just 137 yards overall. Palmer closed out the regular season with at least five targets in three straight contests and a 39-385-3 receiving line, and he'll now aim to continue producing in a third receiver role versus the Eagles' vulnerable secondary in Monday night's wild-card matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Suiting up in regular-season finale

    Palmer (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

    Palmer practiced in limited fashion throughout the week, suggesting he would be available to play. With his status confirmed, he'll be set to serve as Tampa Bay's third receiver after parlaying 11 targets into 126 yards and a touchdown in his last two games.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Gets designation for Week 18

    Palmer (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

    Palmer will take an injury designation into the weekend after he was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday while managing the hip issue. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin remain the Buccaneers' unquestioned top two receivers, but Palmer has carved out a solid role of his own as the team's No. 3 wideout over the second half of the season. He's drawn at least five targets in five of Tampa Bay's last seven games, putting together a 20-187-1 receiving line while carrying three times for 22 yards over that stretch.

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Stays limited Thursday

    Palmer (hip) was limited at Thursday's practice.

    Palmer maintained his activity level from Wednesday's walkthrough as he tends to a hip injury, giving him just one more chance to get back to full participation before the Buccaneers potentially give him a designation ahead of Sunday's game in Carolina. If he's able to suit up this weekend, he'll look to build about his most productive two-game stretch of the season (8-126-1 on 11 targets between Weeks 16 and 17).

  • Buccaneers' Trey Palmer: Dealing with hip issue

    Palmer was a limited participant at Wednesday's walkthrough due to a hip injury.

    Palmer has had two of his top four performances of his rookie season over the last two games, combining for eight catches (on 11 targets) for 126 yards and one touchdown. With a health concern now in tow, his status will be one to watch as the week goes on to get a sense of his potential to play Sunday at Carolina.
