In reacting to this news, SB Nation's Bucs Nation noted that all of the team's captains are crucial to the Bucs' success in the 2012 season:

What's significant, though, is that each of these players on offense and defense is a key cog on the new team - someone without whom, that side of the ball could easily collapse. The Bucs need these captains to live up to their billing, or we might see a repeat of last year.
