Now that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 53-man roster has been somewhat finalized (around here it’s always a ‘fluid situation’) and the focus has shifted to preparing for the New York Jets, the team has released its first depth chart of the 2013 regular season.
Rookie Akeem Spence has earned the starting nose tackle job opposite Gerald McCoy.
Brian Leonard will back up running back Doug Martin.
Daniel Te’o-Nesheim has won the starting left defensive end job over Da’Quan Bowers.
Dekoda Watson will be the starter at strongside linebacker over Jonathan Casillas.
And what could be the biggest surprise — Leonard Johnson is listed to start opposite Darrelle Revis, instead of Johnthan Banks.
