Buccaneers fans are going to love Dee Delaney.
While roster cutting may be one of the worst parts of the NFL season, especially when fan favorites get cut, there is another side of this process worth watching. The Buccaneers may have moved on from some great players, but there are some new faces that will quickly cause the fanbase to fall in love.
Corner Dee Delaney looks like this player to watch in 2021. After an extremely difficult competition during camp to earn the last corner spot, Delaney more than earned his spot on the 53-man roster, and he will continue to prove why every week.
Delaney’s story makes him very easy to root for. After bouncing around several NFL practice squads, Delaney has finally shown out during training camp, and he has a very secure job going into the season.
Delaney’s job is more than safe, even when the Bucs make the final cuts later this week when several players return from COVID-19 protocols. The Bucs need corner to be a deep position after the injuries it faced last season.
As far as the newest Buccaneers corner is concerned, there aren’t a lot of players that are easier to root for. Everyone loves a good success story, and Delaney’s humility and drive after an arduous journey to where he is at is something fans will eat up.
Delaney dominated in the preseason games and camp, and it feels good to see a player work so hard to see it all come together when it matters most. Delaney was everywhere on defense and special teams during the preseason, and it’ll be fun to see how he translates his game to the faster speed of the regular season.
Dee Delaney may be one of the last corners to make the final roster, but his impact in 2021 in search of his first Super Bowl ring will justify his spot on the team over several other respectable names.
