The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers have made headlines for the wrong reasons, but the Buccaneers new WR2 for the playoffs has officially broken out.
Just in case you live under a rock, or out of the country, you may not of heard about the ballyhoo that happened with Antonio Brown. Then again, even if those two scenarios were the case you probably still would’ve heard about it anyway. The point is, he’s gone from Tampa Bay and that’s all we really need to talk about anymore about the former Bucs wide out. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.
That said, when one door closes another one opens. Fortunately for Buccaneers fans from sea to shining sea, Cyril Grayson has kicked down any door that was in front of him straight in and paraded right on through.
The young breakout wide receiver has bursted onto the scene in an absolutely colossal way. He first caught the eye of Bucs fans when he caught a 50-yard touchdown in New Orleans. He came into eye of the NFL public at large this past Sunday when he caught a 33-yard touchdown from Tom Brady to win the game against the New York Jets in MetLife Stadium. Sidenote, that is a sentence that no one ever thought would be written but that’s a discussion for another day. Grayson’s touchdown capped off a six catch, 81-yard day.
The point is, Grayson has made plays aside from those to tape measure home runs. So far on the season he has ten catches for 212 yards in two touchdowns in limited time, but has still broken out with impeccable timing just as the Buccaneers needed him to most.
The Buccaneers are in shambles health-wise, and while they are getting healthier, with the playoffs starting they certainly are not in an ideal situation. This is particularly true in the wide receiver department, but with the way Grayson has been playing, especially in crunch time, the Bucs can rest easy knowing they have their WR2 opposite Mike Evans for the playoffs.
Cyril Grayson has arrived, and while Buccaneers fans are rejoicing, the rest of the NFL while on paper may be excited to see how they look on paper, they will learn real quick of the talent that is Grace and if they haven’t already.
