Have to see how Matt Elam will step in at safety. The rookie should get plenty of playing time in the first preseason game and he will be looking to impress.

 

Buccaneers Player to Watch:  Josh Freeman 

This is a big year for Josh Freeman. He has weapons all around him and he will need to step up and get the football out to them. He just needs to manage the game.

Matchup to Watch: Doug Martin vs Baltimore Run Defense

The muscle hamster will not be in the game that long, but he still will be a player to watch and it will be interesting to see how the Ravens defense does trying to slow him down.
