Buccaneers Specialists (3): Ryan Succop – K, Bradley Pinion – P, Zach Triner – LS

There really isn’t too much to say here. Ryan Succop, Bradley Pinion, and Zach Triner were the three specialists and 2020 and should be again in 2021.

Sure, undrafted free agent kicker Jose Borregales has had a great camp thus far, but the Bucs gave Succop the bucks this offseason with an extension, and was lights out in 2020. Despite some slight flair of the dramatics, Succop will remain the Buccaneers kicker.

With the Buccaneers bringing back all 22 starters and some change in their quest to “go for two” as champions, there really wasn’t going to be too much excitement when it came to the final 53-man roster. That doesn’t mean that the 2021 team won’t be different than the 2020 batch of Bucs. In the NFL, nothing is guaranteed and no two teams are identical.

Preseason brings a lot of excitement for fans as it marks the long-awaited return of football, but also gives them a small glimpse of what’s to come. For the Buccaneers, these preseason games will make or break the dreams of some roster hopefuls, as we can see what they can do with live reps. The projections will surely change as preseason goes on, but for now in the pre-preseason, this is what we think the 2021 Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look like.
