Speaking to the media, the Buccaneers’ new number 5 claimed he needs at least a week of practice before challenging for a spot on the matchday roster.

“It’s anybody’s guess. I need at least a week of practice to really hone things in, to play at the level that I’m capable of. I think it’d be foolish to expect me to come out this week and play at a super high level,” Sherman said at the press conference.
