The Bucs released K Rodrigo Blankenship. That leaves Chase McLaughlin as the only kicker on the roster. We'll see if Tampa adds any further competition over the next couple of weeks, but McLaughlin looks like a good bet to open the season as the Bucs' kicker. He's a weak fantasy option on an offense that figures to struggle post-Tom Brady.

The Bucs are signing K Rodrigo Blankenship, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Blankenship nailed 86.5% of his FG attempts as a rookie for the Colts back in 2020. But he missed most of 2021 with a hip injury and was dumped by the Colts last September. Blankenship had surgery in January to repair a torn muscle in his leg, per Rapoport, and is "finally healthy for the first time in over a year." He'll compete with K Chase McLaughlin for Tampa's starting job.
