Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp news and notes

Steel city intern

TAMPA — Former Steelers LB Greg Lloyd is among the Bucs' minority fellowship interns this season.

Lloyd, 45, spent 11 seasons with the Steelers and one with the Panthers, recording 54 1/2 sacks and 11 interceptions. He will work primarily with linebackers.

The program means a lot to Bucs coach Raheem Morris, who began his NFL coaching career as a minority fellowship intern working for Herm Edwards and the Jets.

"You guys know how much that program meant to me. You know how much that program means to a lot of aspiring young coaches in this league," Morris said.

Although Lloyd is not familiar with the Bucs' one-gap scheme of defense, he was an elite pass rusher from the linebacker position and should be a help to players such as Quincy Black.

"Every once in a while you get guys you can learn from as well," Morris said. "He's a guy who rushed a lot of quarterbacks and did a lot of things in this league and put up a bunch of stats in this league. He doesn't necessarily know our system, but what he brings to us is to talk about that linebacker room and how those things are. You can go on and on about him working with a guy like Quincy and talking about demeanor. Those things are very important."

Another intern in the program is Junior Smith, the running backs coach at East Carolina and will work with the backs for the Bucs.

Quote of the day

"Last year, if you remember what I did to increase the tempo is I made those drills live. I didn't have to do that today. They got better as practice went on."

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
