The Buccaneers appear to finally like their secondary, which ends a subpar performance drought from the pivotal position group. The top three are etched in stone for 2020, but the remainder of the group could use some work.
If injuries are a concern or due to COVID-19, the Bucs may be better off to find as many talented players at these key positional groups as possible in the hopes that they will never be needed, but they are available.
The uncertainty of 2020 could create the need for a veteran corner with a proven track record. Aqib Talib has struggled with injuries over the past few seasons, but he could be an immense help in a pinch if the Buccaneers require a proven corner’s services.
Talib is one of the best corners in Buccaneer history, and it isn’t a long shot that he would be open to the idea of returning to the team that drafted him on a cheap contract to finish his career. His role would be dramatically different, but the roster corners are all young and could use a veteran presence to help take the next steps.
Talib probably shouldn’t be called upon to start for an extended period due to his age, but he may be more trustworthy on the field than some of the deeper depth options.
