They're very quick, so we have to capitalize on some of that. He's just out to prove what he can do. However, Rodgers is a nice insurance policy who had a pair of 100-yard games in 2016, as well as a strong contributor on special teams. As expected, again, Sims's return did not change the Bucs' plans to address the running back corps in the draft. Barber emerged as the starting running back late in the season last year and led the team in rushing with 423 yards on 108 carries which averaged 3.9 yards per carry. He is a decent pass protector, but when it comes to the running aspect of his game, he just isn’t that good.

That leaves three backs on the roster. As the Buccaneers wrap up their offseason workout program, we are taking a new position-by-position look at how the 90-man roster will stack up for the start of training camp in late July.

[…], NXT TakeOver: Wargames 2020 Results A.K.A. At this point I don’t see Sims improving as a runner, but you never know. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 2018 offensive backfield may not end up being significantly different than last year's version, at least in terms of the list of names involved. So I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do when we really get the pads on, but I know he's going to do alright because he's tough and he's got a chip on his shoulder. Despite the bumps in the road the team may face in 2018, the future is bright for Tampa. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released running back Doug Martin, the team announced Tuesday. Key Question: How will the carries be split between Barber and Jones? "With the two young guys, those two young guys, they have speed," said Running Backs Coach Tim Spencer. Tampa Bay’s Running game was certainly nothing to write home about in 2017. But he's a fast learner. "Obviously, he's got some work to do in terms of being able to run certain pass routes, motioning around, catching the ball, but he can pick up the blitzes and things like that. Jones was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second round with the 38th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The last two years the Bucs haven't ranked any higher than 28th in 10 or 20-yard runs, and they've had zero carries of 50 or more yards. Tampa Bay thought they had filled their void at running back by selecting USC’s Ronald Jones with a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft. I actually agree and feel pretty good about Peyton Barber as our featured back. Search for: « It’s Ronald Jones, II, In Round 2. Jason Licht and his staff have been busy….. Taking his place is former USC star Ronald Jones, the 38th overall pick in last month's draft. Koetter and company probably won't head into training camp with a preconceived notion of exactly how they want to split the carries. The biggest thing I want to see Barber improve on is pass protection as he still struggled with it at times last season. Kyle Brandt from Good Morning Football said “there are only about five running backs that can take the ball 80 yards and the Bucs have one of them”. Koetter has been the Buccaneers' play-caller the last three years, first as the offensive coordinator and then as the head coach. "They have some speed that we really hadn't had at the running back spot. We'll see how it goes. Bucs are in need on a Running Back since they cut Doug Martin. The Buccaneers reportedly have workouts/visits lined up with #LSU RB Derrius Guice, SDSU RB Rashaad Penny, NC State RB Nyheim Hines and Miami RB Mark Walton. April 4, 2018 12:22 pm. In the 48–10 loss, he had ten carries for 29 rushing yards. Though Barber was starting by the end of last season (and still figures to play a prominent role in 2018), the last six seasons have essentially been the Doug Martin era in the Bucs' backfield. Only last year, did the situation become untenable, in part due to a lot of early deficits, and the Bucs only ran on 49.2 of their first downs, ranking 25th in the league. Tampa Bay Demon Says: I believe that Wilson is going to surprise a lot of fans when he starts playing in the pre-season games. SRS: -2.56 (21st of 32), SOS: 1.69 Offensive Coordinator: Todd Monken. He had 335 rushing yards over that span, including a 100-yard game in his first start at Green Bay, and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. It was an expected move given Martin's numbers the previous two seasons and the size of his contract; he has since signed with the Oakland Raiders, his hometown team. Did that boost their rankings? That was a similar total to 2016 but in 2015 â again, the last year the Bucs had the running game they wanted â Tampa Bay backs combined for 89 receptions and the duo of Martin and Sims had 832 yards and five touchdowns via the passing attack. With the 2018 NFL season quickly approaching, we look at how each team stacks up in regards to their starting running back as we rank all 32 - Page 4 Barber was an undrafted free agent three years ago. Rarely would he run the ball maybe every once in awhile he would have a big run. Wilson profiles as a potential third-down back and also has return ability. With Falcons’ star linebacker, Deion Jones, out, Tampa Bay should be able to find success on the ground. In 2015, Tampa Bay ranked 10th in the NFL in carries of 10 or more yards and first in carries of 20 or more yards. In 2018, the No. Rodgers is set to make 1.6 million dollars this season if he can stay on the roster.

All-time Receiving Leader: Mike Evans 510 rec, 7,873 yds, 59 TD In terms of a roster spot, Johnson is more likely in competition with the likes of Alan Cross and Donnie Ernsberger than the above tailbacks. This year's crop of tailbacks offered a lot of quality options early in the second round â Georgia's Nick Chubb went a few picks before Jones and Auburn's Kerryon Johnson followed a few later â and the Bucs surprised no one when they dipped into that depth. He made his NFL debut in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears. Feel free to follow me on twitter @TB_Bucs_4life or leave a comment below. This may be his last chance in the NFL so he could make the most of it. During mini camp and OTAs, Jones has shown flashes of being impressive. I like the way he runs, I like his attitude, I like the way he's learning and being able to pick up things. The Buccaneers tallied a convincing win over the Minnesota Vikings coming off their bye week. Size-wise, he has good size but he'll probably put on some more pounds. Previous Season Next Season.
