Bucs put Donald Penn back to field a punt

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers put Donald Penn back to catch a punt in practice this morning.

No, the left tackle isn’t expanding his role to special teams. But he is probably the most popular player on the roster for the rest of the day.

First-year Bucs coach Greg Schiano gave Penn a chance to catch one punt. The prize? If he caught it, Tampa would wrap up its practice one hour early. Penn caught the ball, according to the Pewter Report, and practice ended.
