Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Four potential first-time Pro Bowlers
Amazingly, the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers had only one player named to the Pro Bowl of their absolutely loaded roaster, and it was Jason Pierre-Paul of all people. It wasn’t just that he was the only Buccaneers player that played in the game because of postseason wear and tear, or in 2020’s case attend the event thanks to COVID, he was the only one to be voted, period. No disrespect at all to JPP, but with the talent on this roster (that has their entire starting lineup returning in case you didn’t hear) it’s a little surprising all things considered.
After absolutely shellacking the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes, not to mention all-but retiring Drew Brees and driving Aaron Rodgers out of Green Bay in the same postseason, the Buccaneers put on a show in from of the world that they are one of the most talented teams we’ve ever seen, and they’re back to “go for two”.
Tom Brady may have won Super Bowl MVP, and gets the most notoriety, but make no mistake about it, this was a team effort, and more and more Buccaneers will be getting more national recognition. The Buccaneers roster features a lot of veterans who have made Pro Bowls on other teams, as well as only a couple of home-grown veterans who have been voted.
The Buccaneers also feature a plethora of young talent yet to be called Pro Bowlers, and here are our top four, in no particular order.
