5 Standouts from Training Camp, August 22

A few players who impressed during the Buccaneers' training camp practice on Tuesday.


  1. CB Brent Grimes**
    The Buccaneers must have been happy to see their standout cornerback back on the practice field on Tuesday. Grimes retutned to practice after suffering a leg injury earlier in camp and, although he wasn't a full participant, he was in pads and did some individual work. It doesn't seem like he'll have any issues reporting for duty against Miami in Week 1.  


  1. P Bryan Anger**
    Anger kicks prettier balls than most regular people can throw. He was booming perfect spirals all practice on Tuesday and has regular booted 60-yard punts in practice and during warm-ups. Anger also serves as the Buccaneers' holder and salvaged a poor snap, though the kick was ultimately missed.

3. CB Vernon Hargreaves
Hargreaves got his hands on at least two passes on Tuesday, knocking away a Jameis Winston pass intended for DeSean Jackson during red zone drills and deflecting a pass intended for Freddie Martino during team drills. Hargreaves has been working against Jackson for the majority of camp and has been showing steady improvement.

  1. DT Clinton McDonald**
    McDonald was dominant during one-on-one pass-rush drills, beating Joe Hawley on back-to-back reps. McDonald is listed as the Buccaneers' second-string three technique but is expected to play a significant role within the team's defense.

5. DE George Johnson
Like McDonald, Johnson is a rotational player who is expected to play a fair amount. He hit a smooth spin move during pass-rush drills to pick up a sack against Korren Kriven, reaching the quarterback before Kirven could get his hands set. Johnson and Ryan Russell have been working with the Buccaneers' first-team defense in obvious passing situations, with Noah Spence on the other end.
