Concerned that keeping Matt over all the others might be returning to the 2019 season and those two huge losses due to bad kicking. Licht tried a little desperation heave. There, sitting in free agency is none other than Ryan Succop. He had had some successful seasons, and perhaps his last season was a fluke. He was coming off an injury and maybe he just needed more time to heal?

Let’s bring him in, maybe he can give Gay some competition.

One could say that Succop gave Gay some competition. He, in fact, competitioned Gay out of a job. And now, here we are in free agency with Succop again looking for a job. Only now, he has a bounce-back year to back him up.

Let him go and pray for another miracle? Or just get his contract settled and not worry about who will be kicking field goals and extra points next season.

It’s easy to see why Ryan would love to stay in Tampa. Who wouldn’t want to stay where the quarterback throws the Lombardi Trophy on a deep out across 15 feet of water that’s 70-feet deep?
