This may be the most controversial of the selections, especially since some Buccaneers fans still want to see Tampa Bay sign Devonta Freeman, but it was the right choice for the franchise to stay away.
This one has nothing to do with character or talent, though.
While Freeman hasn’t shown the ability to be a consistent Pro-Bowl level running back, he certainly has talent. The problem is that he wants to paid like he’s a Pro-Bowler.
The Bucs don’t have much cap space and even if they did, it wouldn’t make sense to fill up the room with a running back when you have Ronald Jones II and just recently drafted two running backs.
While Freeman is certainly an eye-catching name, there are other veterans who could play the role of filling depth and would do so for far less cash in return.
