Wow. Still no RB. The Bucs apparently have high hopes for Vaughn. Cool.
What a great draft!

It’s a strange call dude.
In the deepest RB draft in a handful of years, and with our 2 starting RB’s not under contract after this season, we seriously ended up with nothing at the position. I’m just really confused on this one. Guys like Gainwell, went in the 5th round for crying out loud. Much rather Gainwell, over an extremely slow LB, who can’t cover fast RB’s or TE’s(in a division with CMC, Kamara, and now K.Pitts)

the team has 4 quality RBs and do not need another one. Kick returns will be handled by Darden.
As for next year they can sign and draft as needed.

4 quality? Hmm. I see 3 quality. Enlighten me on the 4th? And the only 2/4 that have ever proven at any point in their careers, to be able to carry the ball at least 150 times per year, are Rojo and LF(both of their contracts are up after this year). And you say, ehh we’ll deal with it next year, and just draft RB’s if needed. Who knows what our team needs will be in the draft next year. And this was one of the deepest RB classes of the last decade. Highly doubt next years will be anywhere… Read more »

Good answer, RW. You’ve convinced me, bossman. Thanks!

Vaughn ran well when given the chance averaging over 4 yards a carry. He hit the hole fast and showed shiftiness in traffic. His first pass reception was a TD where he knocked over a safety at the goal line.

I’m not saying I think Vaughn is a bust. I’m just saying, based off last year, the jury is still out. At times, it looked like the stage was too big for him. Hopefully this year, with a normal off-season, he’ll look a lot more confident. But knowing that, and knowing that we have 2 starting RB’s(both of which are flawed, and shouldn’t get a huge payday from Licht), whose contracts are up after this season, I think it was a strange call to completely ignore RB, in a very very deep class of RB’s

I wouldn’t get too worked up over having a RB signed for next year. It’s about the easiest position to fill on a football team. I’d be just as happy filling in the RB position year to year. There are always guys available and rookies can walk right in and play.
