Bring him up the road from Jacksonville and give Peyton Barber a change of pace back. T.J. Yeldon would be a great fit with Bruce Arians as he has the skill set of a poor man’s David Johnson and could provide the Buccaneers with a solid receiver out of the backfield as well as a proven runner between the tackles as well.
He did not end on the best of terms in Jacksonville as team Vice President Tom Couglin condemned him and teammate Leonard Fournette for their actions on the sidelines during week 17 of the 2018 season. However, in Tampa Bay, Yeldon would be kept in check as Arians has been known to keep his house in order.
Throughout his four-year career, the former Alabama running back has rushed for 1,872 yards and six touchdowns in a limited role with the Jaguars. However, given his controlled amount of touches, Yeldon has averaged four yards per carry. In addition, the versatile back has caught 171 passes for 1,300 yards and six additional touchdowns.
Given a full-time load, or even a bigger role in Tampa Bay, Yeldon could be looking at a breakout season. If Tampa Bay is looking to add another running back to the room, they should give Yeldon a phone call.
