Cumming's Weekly Dose

Trib columnist and Bucs beat writer Roy Cummings offers up a training camp preview, which includes position battles.

Everyone knows that Carnell Williams will eventually surpass Michael Pittman so thankfully, Cummings spends little time breaking that position battle down. Instead, he recommends focusing on the battles between returning starters and incoming rookies at left tackle and left guard.

Two of the position battles I will be paying attention to is the one for fullback and the one for strong safety. Alstott is a fan favorite but his production has slipped due to injury, while rookie Razzano has impressed coaches and has decent hands out of the backfield. At safety, Super Bowl MVP Dexter Jackson will have to compete with second year player, Will Allen.
