Other potential losses for the Buccaneers
Next on the list is “Playoff Lenny” Leonard Fournette. Fournette was a great addition to the team last season. He had some incredible plays, especially coming down to the end of the season. Still, is there a talented back out there who could replace him?

Thinking that we still have Ronald Jones under contract, Fournette is less of a need. There’s little question that Fournette was a key addition to the Lombardi run, but money is money, and sometimes you gotta make a deal.
Sorry if it means Fournette has to go, but that’s today’s NFL. How to make the juicy juicier. See you, Lenny, hello James White. And yes, we can also consider LeSean McCoy a goner. Nice guy, but very little production. Can you say no bang for the Buc(ks)?
If Antonio Brown won’t stick around with TB Tom for next season at a low price, he may be a goner as well. AB is a good football player, and staying at Papa Tom’s house, he was forced to follow Papa Tom’s rules. Just like our parents used to tell us, “This is my house, and if you live under my roof, you’ll follow my rules.” It seemed to work for Brown, as we heard no new inflammations regarding his off-field antics.
Hooray for AB. There are still thousands of Steeler fans who have him at the top of their hated player lists, and likely for good reason. He is known for his attitude, which like all divas, tends to slop onto the field and into real life from time to time. But this season, it was not a problem.
So, if he is willing to play another season on the cheap, keep him. If he thinks he can parlay his SB LV performance and ring into a whopping contract, let it be with another NFL team and not the Bucs. We have receivers sitting on the sidelines who are more than willing to pick up his leftovers.
