Rookie Devin White has had a really strong first week with the Bucs, and Bruce Arians is laying down the law already, even in practices that are technically "optional."

No Gerald McCoy for the Bucs' first OTA practice Tuesday. Attendance for these is voluntary. He has not been present for any other portion of the offseason program either.

In his first practice with veterans, Devin White picked off Jameis Winston. That's his third pick since he's been in Tampa. I was really impressed with the way he led the huddle. "Devin's not shy. That's what we like about him," Bruce Arians said. "He jumped out, [learned] the defense quickly for today's installation and wasn't bashful about calling the defense and getting everybody lined up."

Coach Arians said Vernon Hargreaves was not mentally ready to practice today, but would not go beyond that. "You'd have to talk to Vernon. He's gotta get his mind right to practice," Arians said. The Bucs picked up the fifth-year option on Hargreaves' contract just three weeks ago. Carlton Davis had a physical issue that forced him to leave practice early.

The Bucs have signed four tryout players from this past weekend's rookie camp: safety D'Cota Dixon, outside linebacker David Kenney, tackle Riley Mayfield and wide receiver Spencer Schnell. Tackle Israel Helms and wide receiver Malik Taylor were waived, tight end Isaiah Searight was waived/injured and running back Kerwynn Williams was released.

Devin White believes his late brother, J'Marco Jewel Greenard, played a role in him coming to Tampa. He was a big Bucs fan. "I know once I set foot on that field at Raymond James Stadium, he's gonna be with me. He's really gonna give me an extra boost because I always play with him, for him and through him."

Impressive first day at Bucs' rookie camp for cornerbacks Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting. Both had pick-sixes. Dean leaped high into the air for a nice grab — that 41-inch vertical sure helps. Linebacker Devin White had one too but dropped it. Bruce Arians said he was impressed with the way White took command of the huddle.

Source confirms that after consulting with multiple doctors, Jason Pierre-Paul will not undergo neck surgery on his fractured neck. They will revisit it in four months to see how it's healing, as NFL Network reported. I'm told that it's still possible that he plays this year.

Source: JPP opts against neck surgery for now

Buccaneers star Jason Pierre-Paul will not undergo surgery on his fractured neck at this time, but he and his doctors will revisit the injury in four months, a source told ESPN.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians on Kendell Beckwith possibly never taking the field again: "You hate to see guys lose their career[s] off the field. For Kendell, he was a bright prospect and it's just unfortunate. You have to move on. For me, I was never really counting on him coming back. I was hoping, but that's one of the reasons Devin [White] is here."

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said Jason Pierre-Paul is still being evaluated to determine the extent of his neck injury. "All we can do is just pray and hope for the best, and hope it's just one of those five or six-month things and go from there."

Bucs LB Beckwith to miss second straight season

Bucs linebacker Kendell Beckwith, who missed all of last season after suffering a fractured ankle in a car accident in April 2018, will miss the 2019 season, and sources told ESPN that his career could be in jeopardy.

Here's a first look at Bucs' fifth overall pick Devin White, who ultimately settled on No. 45 for his jersey. His favorite, No. 40, already belonged to Buccaneer Ring of Honor member Mike Alstott. He said there wasn't even a conversation about it. "When you see his name in that stadium, that's the ultimate respect," White said. "A change is sometimes good and I feel like this was a good change, just because of who I have to respect. And one day someone might have to respect me that way."

The Bucs have officially signed five of their eight draft selections: cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (second round), outside linebacker Anthony Nelson (fourth round), kicker Matt Gay (fifth round), wide receiver Scotty Miller (sixth round) and defensive lineman Terry Beckner Jr. (seventh round).

I've obtained a copy of the crash report involving Jason Pierre-Paul. The officer on scene concluded that weather conditions, including a wet road, were contributing circumstances in the accident. He did not suspect alcohol or drug use. No field sobriety testing was conducted. The crash also states that the driver was "not distracted," nor was vision obscured.

Sources: JPP has fractured neck, may miss '19

Bucs DE Jason Pierre-Paul will likely need surgery and will visit specialists this week in the hope that he might be able to play this season after suffering a fractured neck, sources told ESPN.

The Bucs have signed running back Kerwynn Williams and waived wide receiver Sergio Bailey, team announced.

Jason Pierre-Paul is to make $14.9 million this year, plus incentives. What's interesting is that $7.5 million of his base salary became fully-guaranteed on March 15. But that guarantee doesn't cover a player placed on the non-football injury list (NFI). They can get out of this.
