The Bucs Should Not Be Done Adding to the Roster

The Bucs Should Not Be Done Adding to the Roster

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via While the team is a Super Bowl contender, there is always room for improvement Full disclosure, this piece has been in my head for a little while now and even before Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement. Now the message is even more clear. The Bucs should not be done adding pieces to the team and now they may have to add more than one player to the mix. With Gronk not returning, suddenly tight end becomes a potential position of need for the team and there are still a decent number of options available in free agency before...

Can Cade Otton Step up in his Rookie Season for the Bucs?

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via Will the 4th round pick be able to fill some big shoes in Tampa Bay’s offense? With Rob Gronkowski retiring from the NFL this week, it leaves the Bucs with a large looming question mark at their starting tight end position, and leaves them with a room consisting of longtime veteran Cam Brate, rookies Cade Otton, and Ko Kieft, as well as second year tight end Codey McElroy. The Bucs may very well add another veteran tight end into the mix as well, but one can assume that there might be a battle this upcoming training camp for...
