Tampa Bay Buccaneers use minicamp to add two new weapons
By John Paul
With the Tom Brady mania that has swept up Tampa Bay this offseason, many Buccaneers fans and the front office know that they need to have a “win now” mentality. This would explain why the team has made aggressive moves to secure players they feel can impact the team this coming season such as running back Leonard Fournette.
However, it is also important to remember that after next year, Brady will no-doubt be gone, and the team will have some rebuilding in front of them before they can expect to make another Super Bowl run.
That is why Bucs fans should be happy to hear the news that the Bucs are still actively looking to acquire talent wherever they can find it.
Following the rookie minicamp practices, the Bucs chose to sign 6’3″ 210lb wide receiver Kameron Brown who played his college career at Coastal Carolina. They also signed Yale tight-end, J.J. Howland after his solid performance at the camp.
The Bucs know neither of these players will likely see the field this year unless the offense suffers a multitude of injuries, so these are obviously players that the front office believes can be developed into contributors in the coming years or camp bodies at the very least.
Buccaneers fans should be particularly happy about the pickup of a tight end considering the team is in need of one after this year.
As for Brown, a team can never have enough fast and big wide receivers, so he is definitely worth giving a chance. The Athletic’s Dane Brugler listed Brown in his “Best of the Rest” receiver rankings putting him at No. 162 among wideouts.
With the pickup of the two offensive players, the Bucs also signed defensive lineman Mike Greene out of James Madison. The signings also came with the release of wideout Austin Watkins and defensive lineman Kobe Smith.
