Buccaneers' Noah Spence drops 10 pounds to add speed

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Noah Spence said he is down around 10 pounds.

What It Means:

"I feel so much better," said Spence, who added he is "240, 243" right now after being listed at 251 last season. Spence's teammates seem to be impressed with the work he has put in: Gerald McCoy said he expects a "breakout year" from the sophomore while Robert Ayers said Spence could be "a 15-plus sack guy."

Spence recorded 5.5 sacks in 572 defensive snaps as a rookie. The Buccaneers were seventh-best last season in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.
