Buccaneers: Five players to watch week three versus Minnesota
By Zach Sauers
CB- Vernon Hargreaves
What goes along with a successful quarterback? Successful receivers… and for the Vikings, they have two.
Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs highlight a young and talented receiving core for this Vikings team, and both corners Brent Grimes and Vernon Hargreaves for the Bucs will have their hands full throughout this game.
Thielen, who is second in yards this year for a receiver, has shown he has the ability to make teams weary along side his deep threat partner in Diggs.
Defensive Coordinator Mike Smith will need to rely on his young second-year corner in Hargreaves to prove that he has matured since last season for this match-up, which is why he makes this list.
Hargreaves, who had a dropped interception last week versus the Bears, showed progress throughout the off-season and pre-season that he welcomes opposing quarterbacks to throw his way. Reference the Andy Dalton pass above.
Veteran Grimes will hold his own this week, but will his young partner due to the same?
