The Bucs' passing game was in some rarefied air last season. Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams formed the third-most productive tandem of wideouts in the NFL (excluding tight ends) with a combined 2,380 receiving yards, behind only the Falcons' Roddy White and Julio Jones (2,549) and the Broncos' Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker (2,498).

But QB Josh Freeman could use a third target. A year ago, it was RB Doug Martin, who caught 49 passes, two more than departed TE Dallas Clark.

Right now, there is a three-way battle for the third receiver spot, but the player to watch as the Bucs head into their mandatory minicamp Tuesday is Cowboys free agent Kevin Ogletree.

The former Virginia star has played in 29 games the past two seasons with the Cowboys and is coming off his best year, with 32 catches for 436 yards and four TDs.

In the Cowboys offense, Ogletree was no better than a fourth option for QB Tony Romo, behind Dez Bryant, TE Dallas Clark and WR Miles Austin.

In Tampa Bay, Ogletree is in a battle for the third receiver spot with Tiquan Underwood, David Douglas and Chris Owusu.

"We're a lot younger team here," Ogletree said. "Guys are filled with energy and passion and emotion. Not that they weren't like that in Dallas, but here we're so young. It just feels like a high school locker room, kind of … not maturity-wise, but in wanting to just go play football."

Helping Ogletree is the fact that his former position coach in Dallas, John Garrett, accepted a similar position with the Bucs. Though the feeling is that Ogletree would play slot receiver, he has the ability to move outside as well.
