5 Standouts from Buccaneers vs. Browns

Five players who performed well in the Buccaneers' preseason game against the Browns.


1. LB Lavonte David
David was all over the field on Saturday and his stat sheet reflected that. He earned six tackles, the most of any Buccaneer, and recorded one of the team's three pass deflections. Five of David's tackles were solo, also a team-high.

2. RB Doug Martin
Martin looked explosive in camp and has had a strong preseason thus far. He continued to build momentum for the regular season on Saturday, leading the Bucs in rushing yards, carries and yards per attempt against the Browns. He finished with nine carries for 40 yards and scored the team's only touchdown, racing 19 yards for a score in the second quarter.

3. LB Kwon Alexander
David was the only player to record more stops than Alexander, the Bucs' leading tackler this preseason. Alexander also recorded the Bucs' only sack, laying a big-time hit on Josh McCown right before halftime, in addition to two tackles for losses and a quarterback hit. 

4. DL William Gholston
Gholston entered the game in the second quarter and had success immediately, recording a tackle for a loss on his very first play. Gholston, who played most of his snaps on the interior, finished the game with two TFLs and four tackles. He looked especially sharp against the run and was able to maintain his position on the line of scrimmage well.

5. WR Vincent Jackson
Jackson entered Saturday's game averaging nearly 30 yards per reception and continued to have success working downfield on Saturday. He caught two passes for 38 yards, a team-high, and averaged 19 yards per catch. His 26-yard catch in the second quarter set up touchdown run on the following play.
