The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had high hopes for 2017. They had one of the league’s hot young quarterbacks, a good defense, and an offense that had gotten much better in 2016. However, injuries and other problems knocked the Buccaneers high hopes down, and they finished the season 5-11, sinking to last place in the NFC South. So what did they do this off season to get back on track?

The first thing the team did this off season was to release running back and former second-round draft choice Doug Martin, who has dealt with injuries and off the field issues his entire time in Tampa Bay. In addition, they also cut ties with defensive tackle Robert Ayers Jr. In free agency, they signed defensive tackle Beau Allen, defensive end Vinny Curry, and center Ryan Jensen. Other than that it was a very quiet free agency for the team.

For the draft, the team had eight selections and used them wisely. In round one they beefed up their defensive line with tackle Vita Vea from Washington. With their first of three selections in round two, they quickly grabbed Martin’s replacement at running back with Ronald Jones from USC. With their other two second-round selections, they opted for a pair of cornerbacks, M.J. Stewart from North Carolina and Carlton Davis from Auburn. In round three they added depth to their offensive line with tackle Alex Cappa from Humbolt State. In round four they added depth to their free safety position with Jordan Whitehead from Pittsburgh. With their last two choices, they went wide receiver Justin Watson from Penn and inside linebacker Jack Cichy from Wisconsin.

Several years ago the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were one of the NFL’s up and coming teams. Injuries, coaching changes, and personel are starting to manifest again, and this has led to Tampa Bay taking a few steps backward. This off season, the “pirate ship” is looking for safe harbor.

Step one was to fire head coach Dirk Koetter and replace him with Bruce Arians, a great hire. That locker room needs to be put back in line, and Arians is just the man to do it. In free agency, they added outside linebacker Deon Bucannon for one season, wide receiver Breshad Perriman for one season, linebacker Shaquil Barrett for one season, offensive guard Earl Watford for one season, safety Kentrell Brice for one season, and quarterback Blaine Gabbert for one season.

For the draft, the Buccaneers priority was the defense which was shown by their first five selections all being defense- inside linebacker Devin White from LSU, cornerback Sean Buntin from Central Michigan, cornerback Jamel Dean from Auburn, safety Mike Edwards from Kentucky, and defensive end Anthony Nelson from Iowa. In round five they added a new kicker in Matt Gay from Utah. Their final two selections were wide receiver Scott Miller from Bowling Green, and defensive tackle Terry Beckner from Missouri. Perhaps now with Arians in charge he can settle down Winston again, and put him back on the road to success. That may not happen right away this season, but eventually it should.
