    Just don’t tell mike.seven about Vea, according to him, he’s already an over weight bust. Guess he knows better than everyone else including the scouts that called him a top fifteen pick

      Think Vince Willfork with the added ability to get to the QB.

    They didnt believe in him enough last season to play him over a terrible Doug Martin for stretches. So I dont believe it yet. I do believe in him tho. Add Rojo and it could be good if the Oline tightens up.

      As blatantly obvious as it was that Barber was playing better last year, I like to think the staff gave Martin the benefit of the doubt simply because of his cap numbers. I really do hate to think our staff was that blind to what was happening on the field

    Please tell me they’re not gonna waste RoJo like it looks they may do to OJ! Barber showed little last season to prove he’s a #1 BellCow NFL Running Back. If they don’t get OJ Howard heavily involved in the offense and keep starting Barber because they’re trying to prove they’re smarter than most everyone else……BOTH Koetter and Licht deserve to be fired. I hope this isn’t the case, but when I keep reading all the smoke they’re blowing up our Keisters re: Barber, it’s extremely worrisome. If Barber comes out and has 1800 all purpose yards, Great. But I’m NOT seeing it. Of course, I’m not being paid Millions of dollars to do so either.

      it seems like they’re leaning toward a committee approach which I’m all for. Rojo and Barber compliment each others’ skill sets very well.

    Don’t worry. It will be a RB competition in Preseason. Once Jones breaks off an electric run for a TD he will be the starter. When preseason starts Barber will start with the first string. Now if he breaks off electric runs and scores TDs and Jones doesn’t he will earn the starting position but they will platoon anyway to keep them both rested. Another great article as usual, Scott!

    Bucs 2018 backfield = PB & J. Don’t let this marketing gold go to waste!

    Rojo and Barber will be a great 1-2 punch for us in a committee. People are getting too tied up in the “starter” status but both will get their touches and should provide a nice jump in production over last year.

    Godwin will be our #2 receiver at some point this season. He may not start there initially but he’s shown the ability to play there. Moving DJax to the slot will also help provide a good mismatch for us in the middle to exploit. Many people focus on DJax’s field stretching ability and forget he can put up big RAC numbers on underneath and crossing routes as well.
