The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offensive attack opens up with its new WR weapon
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a new weapon in the offensive attack and that’s at least cause for a little positivity as we head down the stretch of the 2020 season.
The Buccaneers added WR Antonio Brown to the roster just a few weeks ago and while he has been brought on slowly and with a short leash due to his off-the-field conduct in the past, there’s no doubt that Brown is opening up another dimension in the Tampa Bay offense. Assuming the Bucs can learn and develop chemistry with one another.
With the addition of Brown, the Buccaneers have three wide receivers who would start anywhere in the league in Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Brown. Now, they’re all starting to get healthy and that should be a telling sign for the remaining opponents on their schedule.
Antonio Brown might not be a Pro-Bowler anymore, but he still adds another dimension to the Buccaneers’ offense
What we saw from Antonio Brown against the Los Angeles Rams should be a foreshadowing of things to come.
Brown is able to sneak underneath coverages and he’s still able to beat the vast majority of defensive backs who line up against him. If you go back and watch that Rams game, what you’ll see is that there were several times- especially in the second half- where Brown drew a second defender and that opened up a guy like Godwin.
The most prominent example of this happened on the Bucs’ last touchdown of the game where Godwin caught the pass from Tom Brady and leaped into the end zone.
Brown may come with baggage, but there’s no doubt he is playing an integral role in this offense and if the Bucs can find a way to figure out the roles that everyone should be playing, they could be dangerous as we head into December and the playoffs.
