Sears was excused from minicamp
Guard Arron Sears was the only player excused from the Bucs mandatory minicamp Tuesday, according to a team official.
Sears has a 'personal issue,' that forced him to miss all of the Bucs' 14 Organization Team Activities. Since he was excused by the club, he will not be subject to an $8,000 fine for missing the mandatory minicamp.
Quarterback Brian Griese also was a no-show Tuesday, but his absence was not excused.
