Buccaneers need to stay busy with free agents
Injuries aren’t just going to magically disappear for the Buccaneers. It is fair to reason that this wide receiver corps will never be healthy at the same time if the start of this season is any indication, and being complacent is how you end up with a receiver playing starting reps that has four catches on 13 targets.
If the Bucs are going to move on from Miller, which they absolutely should, they will need to keep going out and finding guys like Cole Beasley.
This was a better signing than most people would give it credit for, but the Bucs can’t stop there. Chris Godwin and Julio Jones are both going to be questionable even on weeks where they are healthy. The Bucs can’t let injuries slow them down longer than they already have.
The market has grown smaller with most of the quality receivers already with other teams, but new names are going to pop up over the coming weeks as former quality players return from injuries, and this is where the Bucs need to keep a close eye on the matter.
Could Will Fuller finally be healthy for the first time in years? What about T.Y. Hilton? Maybe the Bucs go with a younger guy that hasn’t been great but has been healthy?
Regardless, there are better options out there than what the Bucs have now, and wasting Tom Brady’s final season due to a lack of wide receiver consistency is silly.
