The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have some tough decisions to make in the coming months and that may involve parting ways with several players.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be looking to re-sign several unrestricted free agents during the 2020 offseason and will be parting ways with others.

Because the Buccaneers are set up nicely in the NFL Draft and have a solid young core, the organization may look for some different options rather than keeping the same roster intact.

Here’s a look at five Buccaneers who might be finished in Tampa Bay.

5. O.J. Howard

O.J. Howard is the only player to make the list who isn’t an unrestricted free agent. Howard is still on his rookie contract, but it’s clear that his market value is still high.

Though the Buccaneers have been complimentary of Howard as of late, he still could be a potential trading block piece for the organization.

If Bruce Arians isn’t convinced that Howard can become an elite blocker and likes other tight ends better, the Buccaneers could trade Howard and get a second-round pick in return.

Tampa Bay could also accept a few late-round picks for Howard, if they wanted to choose quantity over potential quality.

Howard’s name is going to be floated out there in trade circles and it will be interesting to see if that amounts to anything over the course of these next few weeks.
