A veteran addition for the Buccaneers
When we speak of veterans, players like Antonio Brown would be the best option. While not over the hump, Brown is a good mix of a player that can still play at a high level without dominating the market.
In a similar fashion, the Bucs could look for an older option that still produces in a player like Larry Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald may make some people laugh at the notion that he can still contribute on a Super Bowl team, but the fit is there. In 2020, Fitzgerald still hauled in 54 receptions for 409 yards. The Buccaneers can use every part of a stat line like that.
Tampa Bay wouldn’t need Fitzgerald to be a star. All they would need is a consistent player that can serve as another leader on a very young team. If Larry can provide something in the realm of 40 catches and 300+ yards in relief of Evans and Godwin, this signing would be a success.
Unfortunately, trying to pry Fitzgerald away from Arizona will be difficult, but not impossible. As a staple in Arizona that could easily retire there, Fitzgerald will have to weigh whether or not he is done with football yet. If he wants to continue playing, the Buccaneers could be the best fit.
As a team that is still in contention for the Super Bowl that has a coach that Fitzgerald has played for in the past, Tampa makes more sense than most people would assume.
