The Bucs have gotten plenty of miles (and points) out of Matt Bryant. The 34-year-old has an average 83.1 percent success rate on field goals the past four seasons. But the one thing coach Raheem Morris and GM Mark Dominik have vowed to do is increase the level of competition among all players. That means no job is safe, even for a player who owns a franchise record 62-yard field goal.
To that end, Mike Nugent, 27, was signed during the offseason and will be given every opportunity to win the job.
