Five Tampa Bay Buccaneers who need 2020 season to happen
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to end a 12-year streak of missing the playoffs this season and they have the means to do it. But there are certainly questions up-in-the-air currently.
Oh, and none of them relate to anything having to do with on-the-field talent, development or analysis.
Buccaneers fans, along with the rest of the country, are patiently waiting to hear about the fate of the 2020 season. While most believe we’ll play, there are many NFL players who are voicing their concerns as we inch closer to the start of training camps.
That could, in turn, lead to the season being postponed until further notice or even canceled if conditions worsened.
Here are five Tampa Bay Buccaneers who need the 2020 season to happen.
5. O.J. Howard
O.J. Howard is in the final year of his rookie deal and he needs to make the most of it. There have been talks and discussions of the Buccaneers attempting to trade Howard- though none of that has come to fruition yet- and it’s clear that he needs to prove himself heading into this season.
A season canceled would only further hurt Howard’s chances of signing a second deal once that rookie contract comes to a close.
Another year passed means one less opportunity for him to prove himself and that’s something that the former first-round pick simply can’t afford.
