Last Sunday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium apparently didn’t whet the appetite of football fans in the Tampa area.The game was the lowest attended game in eight years Bryan Anger Jersey , drawing just 40,682 fans in actual attendance to the stadium that can hold 65,618 regularly and be expanded up to 75,000 for large events.According to Rick Stroud of the , the Buccaneers have responded by offering a limited number of free tickets to season pass holders for this Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. The team sent emails to ticket holders on Wednesday announcing the ticket availability on a first-come, first-served basis.“Arrive early to get the party started and let’s make sure the Panthers know this is OUR house,” the email read., per Stroud.The Buccaneers have the third-lowest average attendance in the NFL this season behind only the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers, who play at the smallest stadium in the league as a temporary home. The game against the 49ers was the lowest attended home game since only 39,781 fans attended a game against the Panthers in 2010. The Panthers would finish the season 2-14 with the Buccaneers going 10-6 but missing the playoffs.“We have always looked for ways to add to the fan experience, and this offer is just another example of our desire to bring added value to our season pass聽 members,” said Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford.“We have made similar offers over the years and the holiday seemed like a great opportunity to thank our loyal season pass members with a special opportunity like this.” Tampa Bay‘s bid to lure Bruce Arians out of retirement and back to the NFL included a pitch from baseball manager Joe Maddon.The 66-year-old coach grew up in York, Pennsylvania, not far from Maddon’s hometown of Hazelton. He and the Chicago Cubs skipper have grown close since Buccaneers general Jason Licht introduced them several years ago.Maddon, 64, managed the Tampa Bay Rays for nine years before moving on to the Cubs in 2015. He lives in Florida during the offseason and owns a popular South Tampa restaurant where he and Arians dined last weekend.“I had already convinced myself. But we’re old friends,” Arians said Thursday, when he formally was introduced as Tampa Bay’s fifth new coach in a decade.“It was more break bread Gerald McCoy Jersey , have fun. I didn’t need any convincing.”Arians coached the Arizona Cardinals for five years, compiling a 49-30-1 record and making the playoffs twice before retiring after the 2017 season.He cited health concerns and a desire to spend more time with family for walking away, but was unable to fill the void working in a broadcast booth the past year.“There’s something about growing up in the locker room, the bonds and relationships you build in building a football team,” Arians said. “The ups the downs, and all the things that go in between, is probably what I love most about the game. I missed the arena.”The Bucs, who haven’t made the playoffs since 2007, fired former coach Dirk Koetter on Dec. 30. Armed with a checklist of what the club wanted in a replacement, Licht interviewed Arians, as well as Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Dallas Cowboys defensive backs coach Kris Richard.More Tampa Bay Buccaneers newsNFL history: Buccaneers become first team with two female coaches on staffBucs agree to terms with LB Bucannon, WR Perriman, punter Pinion in free agencyBuccaneers reportedly set to sign Breshad Perriman after WRvoided agreement with BrownsBuccaneers re-sign offensive tackle Donovan Smith to 3-year, $41.25 million contractJaguars CB Jalen Ramsey catches a TD on offense as AFC thumps NFC in rainy Pro Bowl in OrlandoLicht knew Arians from the GM’s days as vice president of player personnel in Arizona, but stressed he also was everything the Bucs were looking for 鈥?a coach with a commanding presence and proven track record for winning and developing players and assistant coaches, as well as someone who would bring some swagger to the team.“He wants to put a (Super Bowl) ring on everyone’s hand in this organization,” Licht said.“He has a fire and passion for this game that burns very deep inside ,” Bucs owner/co-chairman Bryan Glazer said, adding Arians is a “confident, proven leader and has a clear vision and plan for getting our franchise back to playing winning football.”And Arians, who inherits Jameis Winston as his starting quarterback, doesn’t believe it’ll take long to transform the Bucs into a championship contender.“I think we have the core here to win quickly,” Arians said. “I’m not about building, I’m about reloading.”When Arians was hired in Arizona, he took over a team that finished 5-11 the year before his arrival and went 10-6 in his first season in 2013.“This one’s much easier, I believe,” he said. “When I walked into Arizona we had no quarterbacks.”However, the Cardinals quickly filled that void by trading for Carson Palmer.Arians has known Winston since the 25-year-old quarterback was a high school player attending one of the coach’s football camps in Birmingham, Alabama.Winston is 21-33 as a starter over the past four seasons and only one quarterback 鈥?Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles 鈥?has more turnovers than Winston’s 75 since he entered the league as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft.Winston is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Arians said there’s no added on pressure on former Heisman Trophy winner to prove he’s Tampa Bay’s long-term solution at quarterback.“No pressure. No pressure whatsoever. I want him to relax and play the game. Talent’s no issue. It’s just (playing) a little smarter,” said Arians, who’s hiring former Cardinals assistant Byron Leftwich as his offensive coordinator.“With Clyde Christenson as his quarterback coach and Byron, he’s going to be coached as well as he’s ever been and more prepared than he’s ever been fundamentally and mentally,” Arians added. “It’s his team. I’ll tell our players in the first meeting. This isn’t my team, it’s your team. We’ll be as good as you want to be.”
