This issue with RBs isn’t the least of the teams issues.
They have RoJo who can’t block and has hands like Michael Clayton with blindfolds on, and Sneak Vaughn who showed very little for being a third round back.
So they have two runners. They need two more. My suggesting of adding AD is to supplant the role that McCoy had, which was the veteran and emergency sub if necessary. It isn’t because AD is a great back.
As for replacing Fournette who is most likely going to price himself off the team, should be White or a kid they draft fairly early, but not with round 1. Don’t care that it is basically a second d rounder, just don’t do it. Draft a lineman, if some sort with that pick.
So the depth and experience in that room is going to be thin until further notice. Brady doesn’t like dummies playing running back. They can screw a lot of stuff up in an offense.
Bring back Fournette. Bring in James White plus Duke Johnson or Marlon Mack. Jettison Rojo who is one dimensional and not exactly mind blowing at that one dimension. Vaughn gets another shot to learn and develop.
I don’t think Ke’Vaughn had a bad year. It was certainly better than Rojo’s rookie season.
I saw potential.
Would love to see the Bucs bring in 2-3 FA vets to compete.
They’ll probably draft one but hopefully not unless someone on their board falls to them/ BPA.
Hopefully in the mid-end of the draft but it would be hard not to take one of the top 3 with their 1st pick unless a top pick in the trenches is there.
It seemed to me like Vaughn had a fumble problem and Jones is a liability in the pass game. I hope they succeed, but there is risk in both. I hope for a vet pass catcher and a 3rd or 4th rounder. Let the cream rise.
