Calijah Kancey Acquired Coordination

Joe was saved by the Bucs on Monday, hehe. Joe was on the verge of losing his mind over all the draft material and throwing himself out of the window. The NFL might very well advance the draft by a few weeks, lawd.


Thus, to kick off OTAs, the Bucs (happily) released a few guys for availability on Monday. Calijah Kancey, a defensive tackle, is one player that Joe thinks has star potential.


Kancey’s first year wasn’t going well at first. He hurt his calf during the first week of training camp. Kancey had to work on that damn thing for almost two months.

Despite being able to play 11 plays in the season opener against Minnesota, Kancey (as expected) attempted to return too soon and didn’t return until the Lions game in Week 6.


Kancey claimed that probably the most important lesson he took away from his calf injury last year was patience.


Kancey remarked, “I definitely learned a lot about myself.” Due to the calf injury setback and the somewhat delayed start to the season, things were a little unclear at first.

Regaining my sense of self and my college self was my main goal. I expected college and the NFL to be the same easy. It arrived gradually. I was up against seasoned players who had played in the league for a long time, so I had to learn a new scheme.


“It all just started to pick up when I got the repetitions, which was all I needed to get.” It’s where I want to be, working from my final position and getting better.


How much did that calf injury hinder his ability to produce and feel like a full-fledged defensive lineman again? Kancey claimed that it wasn’t until almost the season.

Joe is confident that Kancey will develop into a monster since he has the entire offseason to work out at an NFL weight room and, ideally, a healthy training camp.
