It's been an uninspired offseason in Tampa Bay, at least in terms of its promotional work. Despite the buzz created by drafting Jameis Winston No. 1 overall this spring, the franchise has tripped over itself when trying to build excitement for the upcoming year.

First was their ill-conceived "Siege The Day" campaign, which failed to recognize the definition of the word "siege." Now, The Bucs have tasked themselves with teaching women how to enjoy football.

In a press release from the team, the Bucs' RED Women's Movement seems innocuous at first, but the tone quickly takes a sharp turn. The release explains how the new campaign will work to increase the female fan's knowledge of the game -- but that's not all.

"In addition, RED will re-invent the female fan experience by providing insight into topics such as: what goes on behind the scenes on gamedays at Raymond James Stadium; how to maximize their gameday experience; how to blend personal Buccaneer pride with the latest NFL fashions; as well as tips on sharing their experiences and ideas via social media platforms such as Pinterest," per the report.

Textbook sexism right there. Still, it isn't shamelessly offensive in the way we've promised our readers in our headline. Can you pump just a little more ignorance and condescension from your deep well, Tampa Bay?

Oh, look: Here's a sample of the team's educational efforts, which features its bold attempt to explain the concept of a play clock.

"There are a few reasons why having a play clock is beneficial to the game," per the first installment of the team's educational article series. "Without it, teams would have an unlimited amount of time in between plays, which allows for an unlimited amount of strategizing and unlimited amount of time for players to rest and recover."

Well done, Tampa Bay. You did it! You're good at something!

Granted, it's not the thing you'd probably prefer to be good at, assuming that's still football. But hey, let's take the wins where we can get 'em, right? You need all the help you can get.

Best, Worst NFL Team Arrest Rates



Adrian Peterson is the poster-child, but the Vikings have a genuinely systemic problem: Their 32 arrests in the past 10 years are tied for the league lead. As fans grow impatient with illegal activity among players, franchises like Minnesota's may feel the heat for their role.



Tied with the Vikings is the Denver Broncos, which has had as many arrests since 2005 as the NFL has teams. Despite the well-known locker room presences of Tim Tebow and then Peyton Manning, Broncos players have a knack for finding trouble.



With their recent streak of playoff appearances, you can't quite call them the Bungles. But that string of successes has come amid plenty of off-field problems: Cincinnati's NFL team has had 31 arrests since 2005.



Pacman Jones may be one of the team's most notorious criminal problems, but he's far from alone. In the past 10 years, a Titans player has been arrested 30 times.



It's fitting that a franchise that flies a pirate flag at games would be on the lesser end of the player-arrest spectrum. The Bucs have struggled with off-field problems in the last decade, tallying 26 arrests.



Carolina is one of three teams with only nine arrests in 10 years. Only five of the NFL's 32 teams have averaged fewer than one arrest per year.



The Cowboys can't seem to put it all together and make a run at the Super Bowl, but their off-field distractions aren't a major detractor. The franchise has just nine arrests to its name since 2005.



Maybe it's the steady leadership of coach Bill Belichick, who has always had a no-nonsense approach to being a team leader. If so, his system is working: the Patriots have the third-best mark in the league with only nine arrests in the past decade.



On the downside, rookie head coach Bill O'Brien inherited a team that went 2-14 last season. On the bright side, the locker room hasn't been crawling with bad influences. Houston has had only eight arrests in the past 10 years, the second-best mark in the NFL.



That's right: The least criminally offensive NFL team can be found in Arizona. The Cardinals franchise can claim just seven arrests in the past 10 years.
