The Buccaneers still need depth at wide receiver.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are turning their sights to the 2021 season and a repeat in the Super Bowl. Year two of the Tom Brady experiment could prove more exciting than the first, but the Bucs need to remain aggressive in free agency to keep the talent at its peak.

Bruce Arians and company have done a great job of keeping most of the free agents on the team, but the next few months and the 2021 NFL Draft will be critical in a repeat run to the playoffs.

Brady had plenty of above-average targets on the receiver front in 2020, but the Bucs still need more help through free agency and the draft if they want to keep as many options on the field as possible.

Player #1

Antonio Brown

The Buccaneers need to bring Antonio Brown back. Regardless of the question marks or his history, his fit with Tom Brady was undeniable. The offense is better with Brown on the field, and no argument exists that places Scotty Miller or Tyler Johnson over Brown at this point in their careers.

If Brown had a robust free-agent market, he would already be with a new team. Given the lack of smoke or fire, the Buccaneers should have the ability to retain their third star receiver with relative ease.

Even if they do sign Brown, the Bucs would be wise also to find another young player for the future, but at the moment, there are few options better than Brown to be the #3 in Tampa.
