Rashad Greene, Jacksonville Jaguars
So, this one’s a little bit out of the Madden trade book of a Buc’s fan who is also a Florida State fan – not that I’m a Seminoles’ fan.
Rashad Greene was Jameis Winston’s favorite target at Florida State and the two connected so many times Greene has the school record for catches in a single-season with 99 his senior season.
99 catches is a good year in the NFL with 16 games, let alone 14 collegiate games.

A change of scenery could do this young receiver some good, and playing with a quarterback he instantly has rapport with would accelerate the young man’s learning curve immensely.
As a dual sport track star at FSU, Greene doesn’t have top-end speed, but he does have enough to get on top of coverages and make defenders pay for underplaying his routes.
The Buccaneer may be able to off-load one of their expendable cornerbacks here as the Jags do need some depth at both corner and safety positions.
If this were to happen, it would likely be in exchange for Johnthan Banks and a late-round draft pick. He was drafted in 2015 in the fifth round, so we’re talking 6th or 7th, but honestly giving up a 5th for a guy who knows your passer, has speed and caught 99 balls just over a year ago is worth the risk in my opinion.
Again, this isn’t a move which is even a vague rumor in the outer reaches of football chat rooms, but it’s a move I’d personally love to see happen.
