Two Bucs Break Out In Fight At OTAs

According to, a fight broke out at practice on Monday between rookie defensive tackle Akeem Spence and tackle Jeremy Zuttah. Spence emerged from the scrum without a jersey.

After practice, Spence said the fight happened because Zuttah fired off the ball too aggressively on the first snap.

“Hopefully [Zuttah] respects me for that because I want to be a part of the team,” Spence said. “It’s just me not knowing the speed. . . . Now I know I need to throttle it down a little bit but at the same time get my work.

Contact during offseason workouts often occurs via young players trying to prove themselves. Which makes it more important for the coaching staffs to educate the young players as to the limits of permissible contact during these sessions.
