The Buccaneers are moving back in the right direction after beating the Rams. Still, the team needs to keep making moves to improve.

Good teams never stop getting better. Are the Buccaneers a good team? That much remains to be seen as of now, but that doesn’t mean that the Bucs can’t make a statement by the end of the season.

The Bucs stayed quiet at the trade deadline. This much surprised some people given the need to win now, but no trades doesn’t mean the team isn’t going to keep trying to win.

Trades might be off the table, but the Buccaneers do still have free agency at their disposal. The good news is that the team has looked in some cool directions for pieces to keep this team competitive at the end of the season.

One of the current names to keep an eye on is wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The Buccaneers have a mountain of issues that are larger than talent at wide receiver, but it is still a cool move by a team that needs an infusion from wherever it can get one.

One wide receiver, especially one with a history of injuries, likely does little for the Bucs in the grand scheme of things. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin aren’t going to lose reps, but it is worth noting that Julio Jones and Russell Gage are still missing time.

Could OBJ replace some of those reps for Tom Brady and the offense? Perhaps.

A healthy Beckham is going to be better than what the Bucs have with their depth receivers. In a world of binary, this move does make the team better, and that could be all that matters.

This is certainly worth keeping an eye on over the coming weeks.
