The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are preparing to be a competitive team in 2020, which will make earning a spot on the roster much harder.
Making an NFL roster is already an impressive feat in and of itself, but making the roster of a team that is expecting a mountain of success, like the Buccaneers, is even harder.
Tampa Bay has the potential to be competitive in the playoff race for the first time in over a decade, and more thought will go into the preparation of this roster than most recent years.
The Buccaneers have to make sure that this team is perfectly constructed to be a viable playoff power, and this is going to make it extremely hard for some of the younger or newer players to make the final roster.
This is often not entirely telling of a player’s actual ability, but the guys that have been with the team for a while will have an advantage. With the weird offseason still progressing in an atypical way, some of these new players are going to have a very difficult time solidifying their position early on.
With the Buccaneers trying to build the best team possible, these players might not get a fair chance to make the roster in 2020.
