The Buccaneers’ roster already boasts a tight end that is expected to start and do big things. If he continues to have difficulty staying on the field, who else do the Bucs have at the position.
Dirk Koetter and Jameis Winston head into 2016 with quite a few weapons at their disposal with the Buccaneers. In the backfield, they have Doug Martin, coming off of a huge season, and Charles Sims, his perfect complement off of the bench. Nothing helps a young quarterback more than a solid running game. One is nice, two is better.

Not too far behind are the weapons on the outside. Mike Evans is well on his way to elite status. Vincent Jackson is back and healthy. The third wide receiver remains to be seen, but there is certainly a long list of players to choose from. Add to that a second year with Dirk Koetter running the program, and the offense has a lot going for it.
But, what about the tight end position? Where does it stand? The position has potential, but it’s tenuous. Let’s examine.
