The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are beginning training camp under the cloud of the coronavirus pandemic, experiencing testing for COVID-19 preceding they get the all-clear to take an interest.
What’s more, doubtlessly players will want to partake in the current year’s camp, as the 2020 Buccaneers look bound to snap a decades-long playoff drought since they have Tom Brady under center.
The six-time Super Bowl champion will start his post-Patriots career in Tampa this year, hoping to manage his group to an appearance in Super Bowl LV, which will be played at Raymond James Stadium.
While Brady and the Tampa Bay offense appeared to be ready for a major year, the Bucs protection will at last be the greatest factor in choosing how far this group goes. The Buccaneers offense was tied for third in scoring a year ago, yet their pass defense positioned 30th, giving up 270.1 yards per game.
Heading into training camp, the Bucs will hope to address that issue by updating rookie safety Antoine Winfield regarding Todd Bowles’ system. Concerning what else the protection can do to improve, Jenna Laine of ESPN predicts the Bucs could likewise sign a rotational pass-rusher off the waiver wire to supplement starters Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul.
Retaining Pierre-Paul, Barrett and Ndamukong Suh was likely the greatest win for the Bucs this offseason after the Brady signing. JPP had 8.5 sacks in 10 games last season in the wake of missing the first half of the year while recuperating from a fractured neck.
