DE Noah Spence
All signs point towards Noah Spence ending up with another team next season. Despite the Buccaneers fielding the worst defense in the NFL, Spence still cannot get onto the field.
So far this season, the former second-round selection has 18 total snaps on the season. Spence appeared on the stat sheet once this season. He picked up a combined tackle against the Washington Redskins.
A consistent healthy scratch, Spence’s well-documented injury history has caught up to him. Spence dealt with a shoulder issue throughout his young career, and it could be the reason why he doesn’t see much time.
Coming out of the 2016 Draft, Spence was one of the most physically gifted pass rushers in his class. Tampa Bay hoped he would be the player to fix their putrid pass rush.
Three years later, Spence is emergency depth.
In a pivotal season for Spence, it looks like it won’t turn out the way that most Buccaneers fans had hoped.
