Are you behind on Bucs news? Not to worry. Get caught up here, with stuff you may have missed this week:
If you think NFL rookies are getting screwed over by the new CBA, you’ll be happy to know that Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis has done his part, giving second-year safety Mark Barron $50,000 for the No. 24 jersey . That’s quite a bit of change.
The Bucs signed former Arizona Cardinals cornerback Michael Adams , released offensive guard Jeremy Lewis. Adams played in a lot of the Cardinals’ defensive subpackages and on special teams. He’ll join a pretty crowed defensive backs meeting room in Tampa.
Running back Doug Martin had a spectacular rookie campaign, but he’s not resting on his laurels. Hear how Martin’s improving his game , and what he uses as motivation.
Bucs single game tickets went on sale this week for the team’s home opener against the Saints. I joined the David Baumann Show on Wednesday to talk about attendance, the Barron-Revis jersey swap, and what it will take to get this team to return to a football town.
(Speaking of the David Baumann Show…Our own DB brought home some hardware this week . He was named to Radio Ink’s 35 Under 35 “Rising Stars.” Congrats!)
For the second year in a row, the Bucs will be holding joint practices with the New England Patriots prior to their nationally-televised preseason game on August 16.
The world lost a talented actor in James Gandolfini, star of HBO’s The Sopranos, but Bucs head coach Greg Schiano lost a dear friend . Gandolfini, a Rutgers alum, helped Schiano put his former college program on the map.
Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman did an interview with a local radio station about the upcoming season. A particular quote of his raised a few eyebrows, but what’s more unsettling, is how that quote was portrayed in headlines. I joined the Charlie Bernstein Show to talk about it Friday .
Darrelle Revis seems to be enjoying being away from the New York media fishbowl, telling the Beaver County times, “It’s real laid back down there.” 
Revis appears in a new commercial this week, along with several Bucs players, promoting ticket sales. The slogan? “Light the fuse.” Check it out here .
If you thought Gerald McCoy’s looked a bit leaner at minicamp, consider this — the Bucs defensive tackle has lost nearly 20 pounds as he prepares for his fourth NFL season. He talks about his weight loss and the transition last year to a new defense under Greg Schiano and Bill Sheridan.
The Bucs could lose up to $270 million in a class-action lawsuit. A Gainesville business owner alleges that the team sent him excessive junk faxes in 2009.
