Training camp is now in full swing, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are starting to iron out the details surrounding their running back room for 2020.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need their running backs to be better in 2020. The run game has been more of an after-thought in Tampa Bay in years past, but an effective run game could be instrumental in taking this team to the next level (i.e., the playoffs).

Ever since Doug Martin started to slow down, the Buccaneer backfield was governed by committee mostly. One player may receive more reps than the others, but riding the hot hand was often the approach.

This strategy was met with mixed results. Sometimes, the Bucs could run the ball well enough to chew the clock and build towards play-action passes, but other times, backs would fail to build momentum, and the run game would halt later in games.

With the talent currently on the roster, the Bucs should not have excuses for not posting decent running stats for the first time in half a decade. While training camp news should be taken worth a grain of salt due to the nature of practice, the run game in Tampa Bay could be better than ever in 2020.
