Gruden going great guns

Gruden The Bucs have more than just a passing fancy with the shotgun formation. Absent from Jon Gruden's voluminous playbook in the past, the shotgun will get a workout at training camp at the rate of 30 of 40 snaps a day.

"I grew up in a different place, I guess," Gruden said. "I grew up under Bill Walsh and Mike Holmgren, and those guys weren't in the gun very often. ...But modern-day football now is a blitz league, a creative blitz league. There aren't a lot of teams that line up conventionally, snap-in and snap-out. We're looking for an edge in pass protection and the shotgun can certainly help us."
