The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are returning most of their starters from the 2019 campaign, but that doesn’t mean all of the jobs are secure.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were fortunate to return almost all of their big name-players from 2019. Jameis Winston was the most notable exclusion, but his replacement by Tom Brady helps soften the blow a little bit.

Other than Winston, the Bucs were able to keep all of their other starters on the roster, and the depth chart was supplemented by an extremely successful draft and free agency period.

While the Bucs would like to have as many veterans as possible return to their positions for consistency’s sake, sometimes the best option is to move in a new direction.

As previously mentioned, the Buccaneers have put together an incredibly successful offseason, and the roster is filled with viable talent across the board. The Bucs may choose to shape the team in a similar way to 2019, but they are by no means forced to do so.

The sole focus for Tampa Bay right now is to make it to the playoffs and beyond. In an effort to keep those hopes alive, Bruce Arians may choose to shake things up and switch out some of these returners for new faces to give the team the best chance possible to dominate in 2020.
