Although most are assuming that either Mike Williams or Arrelious Benn will start opposite Vincent Jackson at wide receiver for the Buccaneers, don’t rule out Preston Parker. He did some good things as a receiver and return man this year and he’s drawn praise from HC Greg Schiano and QB Josh Freeman.

Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman on the team's WR corps: “Obviously Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson are freaks. They are tremendous talents,” Freeman said. “Another guy that is just unbelievable – and I’m so happy and so excited about this guy’s progression with how he has come out and performed – is Preston Parker. He’s been unbelievable. And we have Arrelious Benn and Tiquan Underwood, who was a guy I traded with for the combine. He’s not the biggest guy, but he’s really fast and runs sharp routes. Arrelious is doing an awesome job. Sammie [Stroughter] is doing awesome – and so is [Dezmon] Briscoe.”
Throughout the majority of OTAs, Parker and Stroughter have been running second team behind Jackson and Williams, with Benn, Ed Gant, Underwood and Briscoe all rotating with the third team. Yet it’s clear that Parker is establishing himself as the team’s third receiver on the depth chart by doing some great work in the slot.

Bucs rookie WR Arrelious Benn injured a knee in the second quarter, the severity of which wasn't clear. Benn, after catching his only pass, turned up the field for a 16-yard gain but was upended by two defenders, one of which appeared to hit the side of Benn's knee with a helmet.
"Right now I have to figure out what's wrong and then go to the next thing," Benn said.
Asked what happened on the play, he said, "I have no idea. I don't even want to know."
Benn will be evaluated further today. On a day the Bucs were already shorthanded at receiver with Sammie Stroughter out with a hamstring injury, Benn was replaced by Maurice Stovall. Preston Parker and Dezmon Briscoe appeared, each catching at least one pass.
