The biggest wave of free agency has ended. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have improved with their additions. Can they crack the top ten in these Power Rankings?
The Buccaneers have been a team towards the lower middle tier of most writers Power Rankings. Recently Elliot Harrison released his first post Super Bowl Power Rankings which can be seen here, and he had the Buccaneers all the up at number ten. DeSean Jackson and Chris Baker were at positions of need for the Buccaneers. Now with the 9-7 team getting better 10 wins and the playoffs should be the exception. The NFC South has to be taken down before the Bucs can make the playoffs and there are some tough rivals in Atlanta, New Orleans, and Carolina. Atlanta and Carolina were the past two teams representing the NFC in the Super Bowl and New Orleans has a super bowl victory this decade with the same quarterback.
In the NFL anything can happen on Sunday but this is a ranking based off the team on paper right now. Some teams definitely got better but other teams lost some key pieces to start them off towards the bottom of the league on this list.
