The Buccaneers will feature running backs in the passing game much more
Better said, the Bucs will feature one running back in the passing game more. Giovani Bernard was a sneaky acquisition by Tom Brady and company this offseason that should play a massive role in the offense this season.
After Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette, and Ke’Shawn Vaughn struggled to catch passes from Brady for the better part of the season, having a competent running back to rely on as a receiver should be a breath of fresh air from a viewership perspective.
It has been extremely hard to watch Buccaneer running backs bobble easy passes with nothing but green grass in front of them, and the time has come for a dramatic change in this department.
Everyone knows that Brady loves throwing passes to his running backs out of the backfield, and Bernard should be the perfect player to pair with the GOAT. With a bit of burst left and great hands, Bernard should get a substantial percentage of the running back targets for the Bucs this year, which should open up the offense even more.
Brady was able to make the offense work just fine last season en route to a Super Bowl victory without a consistent guy catching out of the backfield, but the presence of Bernard will just make a great offense even better.
