On NFL Network’s morning football show Good Morning Football, Peter Schrager offered up his suggestions on what the Bucs should do moving forward via a segment called “Extreme Team Makeover.”
The major points that Schrager offered up included keeping the front seven largely intact by re-signing outside linebackers Jason Pierre-Paul and Shaq Barrett, along with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh who joined Tampa Bay last off-season on a one-year deal.
The show host added that the Bucs should bolster their run game through the draft by adding D’Andre Swift, a do-it-all back out of the University of Georgia to pair with third-year back Ronald Jones. In a year where Jones made a significant step forward, he racked up 724 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns on an average of 4.2 yards per carry, adding another 309 receiving yards on 31 receptions.
Swift finished the 2019 season with a career-high in rushing yards with 1,218, getting into the end zone seven times on the ground and totaling 6.6 yards per carry over his three-year career with the Bulldogs in Athens.
The biggest move suggested by Schrager however, was an answer to the question the football world has been waiting for: What do the Bucs do with Jameis Winston?
Schrager suggested taking a “huge swing” at New England’s legendary quarterback Tom Brady by pitching Florida’s warm weather and Tampa Bay’s elite receiving duo of Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, both of which eclipsed the 1,100-yard mark this past season despite hamstring injuries that cut their seasons short.
“Go after Tom Brady,” Schrager said. “Why not? Give him the world, give him a blank check and let him have his say on things.”
