      2019 offseason , we have approached a position group that seems to have plenty of depth on the surface, but if you look close enough, you’ll see that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have to bring in some help from the outside. The Bucs have Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as their sure-fire pass-catchers for 2019. Those two are a great start, but depending on Bruce Arians’ evaluations of Justin Watson, Adam Humphries, and DeSean Jackson – the Bucs could be in pretty desperate need of some receivers.Jackson’s $10 million cap hit, lack of production, and bad attitude are known all too well and the word on the street is that Humphries – an unrestricted free agent in 2019 – may be able to find himself on the good side of a contract that’s worth close to what Jackson would make this year.If that’s the case, then it’d be almost impossible for Tampa Bay to bring back Hump.So, the Bucs need a backup plan, therefore, here we are. Just like the offensive line, these receivers that we are about to look at don’t have to be starters. They are simply options that could fill the potential void at the slot position and the potential lack of a vertical threat.Don’t rule out the possibility of an in-house candidate making their case for one of those roles, but for this article’s purpose, we will only look at free agents. The highest-graded receiver in the league was Deandre Hopkins. He finished with a 92.0 overall grade that included a 92.2 receiving grade and a 63.8 run blocking grade. The 92.2 mark was the highest amongst all receivers in 2018.With all of this now in front of us Tampa Bay Buccaneers T-Shirt , let’s find out who the Bucs can bring in at receiver for the 2019 campaign. 1. Wide Receiver, Adam Humphries, Tampa BayPFF Grade: 75.2 Overall/74.0 Receiving/67.3 Run Blocking/781 total snapsThis one is pretty obvious. Hump finished with career-high marks all across the board outside of yards per reception. There is no reason to think that he wouldn’t find a role in Bruce Arians’ offense. But as our own Alex Salvarezza and I discussed on our most recent episode of Overtime, Humphries may be offered/demand as much as $10 million during free agency. There is no way Tampa Bay could afford that salary. They’d break even if they cut Jackson and paid Humphries $10 million, but the thought here is to expand the cap, not even it out. The Bucs could use that $10 million elsewhere, because there are plenty of holes on the current roster. The former undrafted free agent finished with 76 catches for 816 yards and five touchdowns in 2018. His a tremendous route runner, insanely tough, and has only gotten better as the years have passed. The sweet spot here is right around $6-$7 million per year. That’s really all that Tampa Bay can afford, but if Humphries is wanted elsewhere – and there have been plenty of rumblings of interest – then there’s no reason to deny the thought that he could reach $10 million in salary. Let’s hope he gives the Bucs a hometown discount. Honorable Mentions: Golden Tate, Cole Beasley2. Wide Receiver, Tyrell Williams, Los Angeles ChargersPFF Grade: 65.9 Overall/66.4 Receiving/58.9 Run Blocking/857 Total SnapsI’ll admit on this one that I’m a bit biased. This is my dude right here. Williams is a 6-foot-4 205-pound speedster that can run a 4.33 40-yard dash. His size and speed are a rare combination and he is a pretty decent run blocker as well. Just like Hump, Williams went undrafted – except he hails from Western Oregon instead of Clemson – and now finds himself in prime position to make some pretty decent money in free agency.He finished last year with almost the same stat line as Jackson. He wound up hauling in 41 receptions for 653 yards and five touchdowns in2018, good for 15.9 yards per reception. This cat would be a true difference-maker if the Bucs were to sign him. It’d be like having Vincent Jackson – the other Jackson – lined up opposite of Mike Evans all over again Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , except this time you have a player who is “on the up” instead of in decline.And Williams is much faster than Jackson. Much, much faster.The Bucs also have the salary cap working in their favor. Not necessarily their cap in particular, but the Chargers’ cap. L.A. has around $21.9 million in cap, but guess who is due a new deal after this season?Melvin Gordon.You know he is going to want to get paid and he is the key to that offense outside of Philip Rivers. It would stun the NFL if the Chargers let him walk.So, that likely means that the Chargers will have to say goodbye to someone(s) and that someone in particular could be Williams. If that ends up being the case, keep your fingers crossed that Tampa Bay ends up becoming Williams’ new home.Honorable Mentions: Phillip Dorsett, Josh Gordon3. Wide Receiver, John Brown, Baltimore RavensPFF Grade: 64.7 Overall/65.1 Receiving/54.4 Run Blocking/797 Total SnapsOut of all three options, Brown is the most likely candidate to land in Tampa Bay. He’s projected to earn around $6 million and not only does he have familiarity with Arians and his system/scheme, but it’s safe to say that Arians was able to get the best out of Brown. He finished with a 1,000 yard season in 2015 and caught 113 receptions in his first two seasons under Arians.But Brown was diagnosed with sickle-cell anemia in 2016 and that apparently gave him some issues with his hamstring. He wasn’t able to build off of his promising sophomore campaign and even had more issues with his hamstring that kept him out of six games in 2017. All of that was put aside in 2018, however, as Brown played in all 16 games and finished the season with 42 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns. At 5-foot-11 178-pounds, he is basically the same size as Jackson and can run a 4.34. Brown is essentially Jackson without the attitude. Their measurables are nearly identical and they both possess elite speed. Signing Brown makes the most sense out of all of the other options and when you consider how Arians is bringing a lot of his former staff together Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie , you have to ask yourself, ‘why wouldn’t he bring backs some former players, too’.Honorable Mention: Jermaine Kearse Make no mistake about it, this is a big game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and if they can find a way to win, they will be a game out of the playoffs with three games remaining.The Buccaneers will be playing host to th 10-2New Orleans Saints on Sunday. These teams last faced off in week 1, where the Buccaneers picked up a 48-40 road win. Both teams wont put up a combined 88 points again, but if the Buccaneers who are currently 9 陆 point underdogs want to pull of the upset, here are the keys to the game. Win the turnover battle: I know, its cliche, but I think this is there only shot to win this game. Over the last two weeks, Tampa Bay is +6 in the turnover battle and what do you know, they are 2-0 in those games. The defense must force a mistake or two, whether it be a fumble or interception and the offense must take care of the football. You aren’t going to have a repeat performance of last Sunday when the defense forced four turnovers, but it needs to be similar to week one, where they forced two crucial fumbles.If the Buccaneers are +2 in the turnover margin Cheap Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , they will have a chance to win this game in the fourth quarter. 2. Establish some sort of run game: Look, the Buccaneers won’t be a dominant running team the last four games of the season, but in order to beat the Saints, you need to keep Drew Brees off the field. Dirk Koetter cannot abandon the run game unless the team is down by multiple scores. If Peyton Barber can get 3-4 yards per carry throughout the game, especially on first downs that would be a huge success for this offense and would help set up one on one matchups on the outside in the play action passing game. Run the clock a bit more than usual in this one. 3. Red Zone defense: It’s no secret, the Saints will be able to move the ball against the Buccaneers defense. Heck, the Carolina Panthers had over 440 yards of offense last week, so there is no reason to think the Saints can’t do the same. The key will be holding them to field goals instead of touchdowns. The Buccaneers are allowing touchdowns on 85.37% of RZ trips this season, which is dead last in the NFL, by a wide margin. That cannot be the case on Sunday. 4. Don’t kill drives with penalties: This also isn’t a secret, the Buccaneers will be able to move the ball on Sunday. Too many times we have seen drives stall or result in field goals because of bad penalties on the offensive line. You cannot beat a 10-2 team by ruining drives with dumb penalties. Play smart clean football along the O-line and let Winston march the boys down the field. 5. Get some sort of pressure on Drew Brees:We saved possibly the most important aspect of the game for last. Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks in the league at getting the ball out quick. The defensive line needs to show up in this game for all four quarters and be relentless with their pass rush. You don’t necessarily have to get 4-5 sacks, but if you can effect some throws like they did last week, you will at least limit the big play ability from the Saints.
