A depth spot on the Buccaneers offensive line will be hard to win
Brad Seaton hasn’t been a significant contributor for the Buccaneers during the regular season, much like Ryan Griffin, and that will make it difficult to justify keeping him on the roster. The Bucs already have a decent backup in Josh Wells, and there is likely only one other spot for a player like Seaton.
Seaton will go up against various offensive linemen during camp to earn this final spot, and it will be an uphill battle.
This battle will boil down to Seaton versus UDFA Calvin Ashley, and while Seaton has the experience advantage, Ashley has all the tools to be a great backup at the NFL level.
Another name to watch on this front is recent third-round pick Robert Hainsey. Hainsey is listed on the team website as a tackle due to the fact that he played that role in college, but he is likely a better option on the inside of the line.
Hainsey becomes an intriguing option when evaluating the rest of the interior offensive line. The Bucs have a very solid three on the inside that should return for the future, so Hainsey could be a long-term backup that could play anywhere on the line for the Bucs, making him a more reliable option than Seaton.
Seaton has the experience that makes him a good option to lean on in a depth role, but the Bucs have some younger guys that could turn into more down the road while also bringing a higher level of production in the present.
