The Bucs in one word: “Youngry”

Tampa’s first depth chart of the year was released Monday, and the average age of the starters on the team is 25.9 years old. Only three starters are above 30.

Combine that youth with a 10-6 season last year that fell short of the playoffs, and coach Raheem Morris has coined a new word for his players: “Youngry.”

(Yeah, Morris first said this a while back. But we didn’t see it until Tuesday on and it’s too great to pass up.)

We continue to be disappointed there was no Hard Knocks this year about the Bucs.

It would have been fun to learn more about the youngriest team in the league.
