PewterReport.com and Westshore Financial present the Pewter Nation Podcast, a weekly audio hour of news, analysis and inside scoop on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers delivered with a dose of humor and insight from Bucs beat writers Scott Reynolds, Mark Cook, Taylor Jenkins and Matt Matera, who also serves as the show’s producer. Look for the Pewter Nation Podcast each week on PewterReport.com for your listening pleasure during the 2020 season.

Some of the PR staff is in Indy for the 2020 NFL Combine and this podcast is the first appearance for Jon Ledyard! It was an even more important day on as the media heard from Bruce Arians and Jason Licht for the first time this offseason. How true were their sentiments? Well that’s what the guy’s are trying to decipher. As the Jameis Winston saga continues, it’s looking more like they could go with the franchise tag so the Bucs have more time to weigh their options.

The group heard from some of the prospects today, and after Arians’ press conference, the Bucs could be going for an every down running back that is a good receiver as well. Speaking of receivers, SR gives a name of a guy here this week that he is a big fan of, and could be sleeper in a later round. Find out that plus much more in a brand new episode of the Pewter Nation Podcast.

  1. IF they flood the OL position via the draft that is fine with me!

  2. SR is such a big Derek Carr fan. He says how Arians wants winners in one sentence then says its very possible Arians brings in Carr. Its funny. Thank goodness Jon Ledyard reeled him back in on the downgrade Carr would be in Arians offense. It was also interesting to listen to these guys remark about how Licht said rookies aren’t an early option for the Bucs at all. Maybe a day 3 guy in the 4th round or later.

    • Did not see it that way at all.

      SR clearly seems to like Jameis as a better option than Carr. He is just echoing though that Arians has said a lot about there may be some other quarterbacks the Buc’s may have interest in. He just said that he is ok with the Buc’s making the decision on whether they want to stay with Jameis or move on from Jameis.

      On the other hand, Jon Ledyard has clearly been consistent in that he is a huge Jameis fan over EVERY option out there whether free agent, trade, or rookie.

      So I saw them staying in their lanes.

  3. I agree on Carr. He would be a down grade imo as well. There is no evidence if he was forced to throw more and more difficult throws like Arians runs that he would be much better than Winston with 15 int. Or so…

    If he’s so talented why after one season would Gruden dump him? I don’t believe it’s all about getting Brady. It’s all rumor at this point. Even if it is about Brady does he have enough left in the tank to do much at 43 and would it be worth dumping your supposedly so talented young franchise QB to get him for a year or 2? Doesn’t make sense unless you didn’t want him regardless of Brady’s situation.

  4. Not that you guys have to disagree just to disagree but in this podcast you really do pretty much agree on everything. As time continues to go by, I hope that you check yourself so it does not just become a group think type of site.

  5. I think the team likes Howard and Brate. But long term Howard has the better value and greater upside.

    Sure, the Bucs also like McElroy, Hudson, Auclair and Leggett. Bucs are very lucky to have such a deep TE group along with Brate and Howard.

    But at the end of the day here are the Bucs catch leaders (receptions) according to the 2019 season:

    1. C. Godwin 86
    2. M. Evans 67
    3(T). B. Perriman 36
    3(T). C. Brate 36 rec
    4. D. Ogunbowale 35
    5. OJ Howard 34

    Howard is going to make a little over $3 mil according to over the cap while Brate is going to make $6mil which is 3% of the Bucs cap.

    To me it is a no brainer that the Bucs move on from Brate and not Howard. I can see the point of view of the PR staff if they feel Howard has greater trade value. However, Howard is dirt cheap and the Bucs have the ability to pick up his option later in the year.

    Unless a team offers the Bucs a sweetheart deal for Howard I think he sticks for the Bucs. Brate on the other hand isn’t as guaranteed to return. Bucs could afford to keep both of them just in case of injury to one another.

  6. You guys have wayyyyy to many advertisements on your podcast. Out of 60 minutes a good 20 minutes of airtime is advertisements. It’s like a podcast and an infomercial all in 1. Can we please shorten that?

  7. There has been a lot of talk about re-signing the big three of JPP, Shaq, and Suh.

    But what about Nassib, Roach and Minter? Bringing back the big three with Nassib, Roach and Minter would set up the defense nicely with just needing a vet CB and a vet safety in the mix.

    What I am saying is that this could lead to the Bucs going for an offensive heavy draft for the most part.

  8. Excellent podcast – good analysis and general discussion about the team. Jon seems to mesh well with the group. Look forward to the next podcast.

    Agree on the Winston theme, I don’t see Brady coming to Tampa and everyone else is not better. Everyone says Carr (and others) don’t turn the ball over but I seem to remember it being discussed more than once (especially by Carson Palmer) that the 1st year in Arians offense is a riddle for the QB and the interception go up. Why would it be different for Carr or Rivers or anyone else? So, we might as well tag Winston and get our back-up QB (or future starter) in the draft. I will say I disagree about the OL. All last year in the offseason, BA talked about not drafting an OL prospect because that’s just developing a player for the next coach. That seemed like a deeply held conviction, so I don’t think he’s changed his mind. If they draft OL, it will be mid-draft and maybe only one. The rest will come via free agency or undrafted guys. Just my opinion of what will happen – not what I think should happen.
