After a less than ideal start to his career, cornerback Vernon Hargreaves is on the road to redemption with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 2016 NFL Draft has turned out to be historically bad for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as not a single player taken has panned out for them. However, two are starting to put it all together under their new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and head coach Bruce Arians.
Yesterday, we covered how Noah Spence may finally be ready to live up to the hype he had coming out of Eastern Kentucky; a former Ohio State Buckeye who was dismissed from the team. Today, first rounder Vernon Hargreaves is the topic, as he is on the right path down his road to redemption.
After becoming the Buccaneers’ first round selection and the 11th overall pick in the draft, he has yet to live up to the title of a first round pick in Tampa Bay. His play has been sub-par for one thing thus far, but the health of his body has been another.
Hargreaves has played just one full season during his three year tenure with the Buccaneers to this point. As a rookie, Hargreaves started all 16 games, taking some growing pains along the way and finished with one interception, but has not played a full season yet.
