TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps is trying to make the best of an opportunity to revive his football career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The former University of Florida running back made his NFL debut last year, appearing in two games after joining the Bucs following the close of his track and field season.

The 24-year-old, who was called the fastest player in the league by coach Lovie Smith, subsequently decided to take up football full time and is expected to see action Friday when Tampa Bay plays its preseason opener at Jacksonville, which will take its first look at rookie quarterback Blake Bortles in a game.
