Bowles Getting Defense Ready For Different Kind Of Wildcat

Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is getting his defense ready for the New Orleans Saints offense, minus future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Bress, who is out with a hand injury. But that doesn't mean the challenge will be an easy one. That's because for one, Saints head coach Sean Payton uses the wildcat offensive package in his system. The Saints, who will start quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for the third straight game, also use Taysom Hill to run the wildcat package. Hill, who played quarterback at BYU, is used in the Saints offense at multiple positions. But because of his experience at quarterback, Payton is comfortable with having the second year player throw the football out of the wildcat offensive set.

Bowles was interviewed by the media on Thursday & emphasized that the challenge of stopping the Saints wildcat set is more difficult than other wildcat sets in the NFL because of Hill's ability to throw the football.
