There isn’t a lot the Buccaneers can do to save their season as of now, but bringing back some pieces from the Super Bowl is a good place to start.

This is a dark time for the Buccaneers. The losses have been brutal, the coaching staff leaves plenty to be desired, and the players have left a lot of opportunities on the field.

There have been dozens of issues for this team. Can they fix them all in time for the playoffs? That much remains to be seen, but it doesn’t mean that Tampa just needs to give up.

There are moves out there that can start to slowly flip the script, and the Bucs staying busy in the free agent market is going to help in its own small way.

The first of the moves made by the Bucs have turned their sights back to the roster that won the Super Bowl. Two familiar faces are coming back to Tampa; Tyler Johnson and Ryan Smith.

This is a cool move that could help in some small areas but don’t expect it to completely move the needle. Smith will do well on special teams when given the chance and Johnson is a better receiver than Scotty Miller and Jaelon Darden, but the problems in Tampa go well beyond two guys that will do little more than play special teams.

Tampa may hope that these two could help bring the team some success in their roles similar to what we saw during the Super Bowl run, but it is going to take some quality performances to get back to that point.

Hopefully this is the first move of many that has the Buccaneers trying to improve their struggling roster before the end of the season.
