Hargreaves is running with the first-team defense thus far in camp and has repeatedly made plays in coordinator Todd Bowles' new defensive scheme, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
There was cautious optimism throughout the offseason that both Hargreaves and fellow corner Carlton Davis would take well to Bowles' aggressive bump-and-run coverage schemes, and both players have validated that expectation thus far. Smith reports Hargreaves has consistently flashed in each of the first five practices of camp, with heady interceptions last Saturday in a two-minute drill against the first-team offense and another in Tuesday's practice especially standing out. Hargreaves earned a ball-hawking reputation during his three college seasons at Florida, garnering 10 interceptions and 27 defensed passes overall. However, through 26 NFL games, the 2016 first-round pick has just one interception and 15 pass breakups while primarily playing in off-coverage and zone schemes that proved to be bad fits for his skill set.

- Hargreaves was held out of Tuesday's practice for non-injury reasons, with coach Bruce Arians saying the cornerback "has to get his mind right in practice," Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
- Hargreaves saw his fifth-year team option exercised by the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
- Hargreaves will be playing press coverage much more often and lining up exclusively on the outside in new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "It's everything that I do. It's kind of like taking me back to college," Hargreaves said of the new scheme, which is more aggressive than the read-and-react system favored by former defensive coordinator Mike Smith. "It's that same scheme [as the Florida Gators used] -- blitz the quarterback, man-to-man on the outside and let's get after it." All Vernon Hargreaves News
