Zack Moss

Unlike what Dillon or Elliott might bring to Tampa Bay, Zack Moss is closer to what the Bucs have in Rachaad White as a dual-threat back.

Last year in Indy, Moss finished with 986 total yards and seven touchdowns. Most of his production came on the ground but he did show flashes of being able to spark the Colts offense with some great catch-and-run plays. He'd essentially be a younger version of Chase Edmonds, who has a lot of the same qualities as Moss right up to their size and stature and backs under 6'0".

He's also established himself as a purely complementary back, which isn't as much of an insult as that may seem. He played a secondary role in Buffalo but did so by logging almost 1,200 total yards and ten touchdowns over the course of two seasons and change in Buffalo (he played five games for the Bills in 2022 before being traded).

That depth role is what the Bucs brought Edmonds in to do last year, although an injury wiped out most of his season. Moss is a bit on the pricey end, but he'd offer a younger upgrade to Edmonds. He could even be signed as an RB3 if the Bucs don't believe Sean Tucker can be that guy next year, which would give Tampa Bay a pretty strong running back room.

Market Value: $4.6M
