Forget the old adage; offense is what actually wins championships in the modern NFL. Good thing the Buccaneers continue to address their offense.

The Buccaneers are an offensive team above all else. If Tom Brady and company aren’t cooking, this team stands little chance of winning anything during this era.

There have been a few games where the defense was able to step up and help out in key moments, but the modern game is based on who plays better on the offensive side of the ball above all else.

In the spirit of always trying to get better on offense, the Buccaneers have reached out to recent free agent running back Ty’son Williams.

Williams wasn’t used in a huge volume by the Ravens last season, but he did show in limited reps that he can make noise without getting the ball much. 5.3 yards per carry and 9.3 yards per reception is nothing to scoff at.

Going after another running back with the room mostly set for the Bucs may seem like overkill, but the injuries at the position last season should show why going after guys like Williams is so important. Todd Bowles and company have made it clear that they want to keep the ball on the ground with greater efficiency in 2022. You can’t do that if you don’t have bodies in the running back room.

Williams would probably be a long shot to make the roster with so many established options, but it would be interesting to see a camp competition between Williams and a guy like Ke’Shawn Vaughn. Also, in a much more unlikely universe, what happens if Rachaad White looks like he could replace Giovani Bernard?

There is some freedom here, and at least reaching out to Williams is a quality move by the Buccaneers.
