– Cross as basically H-back (but likely active on most game-days given how much Koetter loves TEs).
* Westbrook deactivated for most games and possibly sneak him onto the PS if they think he won’t be poached.
Looks pretty straight-forward to me. Koetter and Jameis both love 12 personnel and Koetter changes his game plan according to his personnel. Bucs move up to the Ravens/Bengals level of mid-40s % plays in 12 personnel. Both Brate and whatever 1st TE they would pick-up would be able to play Hybrid-Slot/Flex for effectively an 11 personnel look. Both TEs would be able to see a theoretical 70 + % of snaps (barring injury) with those personnel groupings plus jumbo.
With Howard, pass protection, run-blocking, and predictability based on down-and-distance and personnel groupings improves.
