With the Buccaneers setting a new standard for the rock-bottom point in their season almost every week — they will set a new franchise record for points allowed if they give up 25 points vs. the Falcons Sunday — big changes could be coming to the team, including some significant restructuring on defense. The franchise is committed to developing its young defensive linemen — DT Gerald McCoy has said he's ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn biceps that landed him on injured reserve — and is very optimistic about their future. Sources expect linebacker and the secondary will be the areas the team focuses on strengthening. Starters OLB Geno Hayes, SS Sean Jones and CB Ronde Barber will be free agents and might not be back and there's a good chance there will be a new defensive coordinator whether head coach Raheem Morris, who currently serves in that capacity, is fired or not.
