10 Cheapest Beers in the NFL

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Price of a small draft beer: $5.75 for 16 ounces
Price per ounce: 36 cents

The quarterback once considered the future face of the franchise, Josh Freeman, was been benched for backup Mike Glennon before being released. Coach Greg Schiano may or may not have leaked confidential drug test information about Freeman to the media, has chafed players including star cornerback Darelle Revis with his aggressive style and drawn fire from both the New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals for having his players dive after the ball when the opposing offense kneels down to run out the clock. It hasn't helped that Schiano's team lost both times it tried the latter.

The team is 0-4. It hasn't had a winning season since 2010, hasn't made the playoffs since 2007 and hasn't won a playoff game since winning the Super Bowl a decade ago.

Yet none of that is why Bucs fans deserve one of the cheapest beers in the league. The fact that they've seen just five of the teams 24 home games on local television between 2010 and last year, despite shelling out 100% of the costs of $165 million Raymond James Stadium, warrants some cheap suds. As does the news that, at least for this season, that blackout streak is over. Bucs management announced last week that they -- and not the team's television affiliates or sponsors -- would send a check to the league if attendance fell below the league's new, optional 85% minimum.

That's a big reward for a fan base that's put up with more than its share of insults in the past few years. Some reasonably priced concessions only further salve that wound.
