After a letdown in 2019 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will need to see major improvements from some of their younger players who see significant playing time.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers find themselves in interesting territory entering the 2019 season. They are coming off back-to-back 5-11 seasons and have hired a new head coach in Bruce Arians.
However, despite hiring one of the more saavy veteran coaches in the league who brought along a star-studded coaching staff which includes Todd Bowles and Byron Leftwich, the national media pundits are not high on the Buccaneers’ chances this season. With no cap space and the loss of a handful of key veterans, Tampa Bay will have to depend on their younger talents.
With the addition of the incoming rookies, particularly Devin White and Sean Murphy-Bunting, as well as some quality free agents such as Deone Bucannon and Breshad Perriman, the Buccaneers are looking to take major strides in their first season under Arians. In order to do so, their other youngsters must come of age.
The Buccaneers have a handful of young, talented players, but unfortunately at least three of them did not live up to expectations in 2018. If the Buccaneers have plans of proving the national talking heads wrong and making a name for themselves in 2019, they will need a bounce-back performance from these three youngsters who are expected to see starting roles or large amounts of snaps.
