3. Bucs sign Derrick Henry in free agency

The biggest struggle for the Bucs, last season, came when trying to run the ball. Some of that can be blamed on the lack of consistency up front across the offensive line, and some can be pinned on the Bucs' running back room not having someone who can be a between-the-tackles type of runner.

Derrick Henry is on his way out of Tennessee after some incredibly memorable years, but he has publicly stated he's far from retirement. He's even said that he believes he can run for 2,000 yards again, just as he did a few years back.

Tampa Bay being a competitive team should be appealing to Henry in free agency, but also having a need at the position means this could be a great match.

Now, Rachaad White will still have a lot of impact on this offense. But, having a guy like Henry to take some pressure off and getting some early down carries is going to make White even better. Keeping White fresh and allowing him to do what he does best (in space and the receiving game) will allow this offense to flourish on the ground.
