Spires: D-Line key
Defensive end Greg Spires is well aware of the expectations.
"Last year we didnt get as many sacks as we wanted, so we have a lot of pressure to go out there and get the sacks and help this team," he said "With Simeon (Rice) being healthy (plus) we brought a couple (new) guys in, hopefully we'll solve that problem."
The Bucs have revamped their defensive front, adding Gaines Adams, Kevin Carter and Ryan Sims.
By the way, there's more to come here. Word is we're going to hear from Mike Alstott soon. Maybe we'll ask him if this is going to be his final season -- again.
