How many future Hall of Fame players do the Buccaneers have on their roster right now? Could they add more?
Individual accolades don’t matter so much when a team like the Buccaneers is competing for a Super Bowl, but it’s hard not to get swept up in the star power that Tampa has assembled.
The Bucs have future Hall of Fame talent spread throughout their roster, and there is a decent chance that a few more names could join before the season ends, giving the Buccaneers one of the most impressive rosters ever assembled.
First, let’s look at the current locks for the Hall of Fame on the Bucs.
Has there ever been an easier player to put in the Hall of Fame? Probably not. First ballot of all first balloters.
The greatest tight end of all time also has a very clear spot in this prestigious group.
You may not like him off the field, but Brown is one of the best wide receivers of all time, and winning the Super Bowl with the Bucs helped make this an obvious decision for the remaining holdouts.
If the NFL never played another game, these guys make the list without question. However, the Buccaneers also have a few names that are getting close to earning the same honor for themselves.
There is still some discussion outside of Tampa on whether or not David deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame, but Bucs fans know the truth. David is and has been one of the best linebackers in the league for quite some time now, and a few more good seasons from him mixed with some more post-season chances should make this much easier for other fans to wrap their heads around.
The best offensive player in team history and an NFL record-holder probably makes a compelling case to join the Hall of Fame. Evans still needs a few more seasons to solidify his legacy, but he is very close now.
With three players as locks to go into the Hall of Fame and with two more that aren’t far off, the Bucs already have a great roster historically in this sense, especially when considering some of the young players that also have the time to make a name for themselves.
But even a team like the Buccaneers needs help from time to time, and there is a way Tampa can add even more future Hall of Famers to their roster through free agency this season.
Tampa needs some help in their secondary, and who is better to target than one of the best man corners of all time? Sherman is a fit on paper, and his career makes him an obvious choice for the Hall of Fame down the road.
The Bucs also need help in their run game, and Adrian Peterson could be an addition to the roster if Tampa decides to trade one of their current players.
