I sat down with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston this morning to talk about the profound impact Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had on his life. He told me one of his favorite quotes is from MLK: "Don't let finite disappointment affect your infinite dreams."

Nobody extends the play like Rodgers

Including playoffs, Aaron Rodgers has thrown 22 touchdowns this season after holding the ball for more than three seconds. That's easily most in the league, with Jameis Winston and Matt Ryan a distant second and third. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Looks like Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston will have another busy offseason in the Tampa Bay community. He'll be the grand marshal at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade in St. Petersburg on Monday. He'll also be attending the Tampa Organization of Black Affairs (TOBA) MLK Breakfast that morning.

The Bucs have officially confirmed Mike Smith's contact extension. This is from Smith: "While I did have a chance to speak with a few organizations about head coaching opportunities earlier this offseason, it became very clear to me that I am in an ideal situation here with the Buccaneers. For the next couple years, I am fully committed and focused on my role with Dirk and the organization and will not be pursuing head coaching opportunities during this time."

More weapons needed in Tampa Bay

Mike Evans has blossomed as the Bucs' top receiver, but there aren't any other dynamic options on the depth chart. An explosive receiver should be targeted in April's draft. Biggest draft need

For Bucs punter Bryan Anger's extension, he'll make an average of $3.4 million per year over the next five years with $6.5 million guaranteed. The total cash value is $18.7 million, which would make him the third-highest paid punter in the league. There is an additional $1.25 million for not likely to be earned (NLTBE) incentives. His previous deal with the Bucs was for one year, $1.75 million.
