This year’s Bucs hardly resemble the team that went 7-9 in 2019, but it’s worth taking a quick look at where they came from.
Jameis Winston became the first quarterback to throw for at least 30 touchdowns AND 30 interceptions in one season, a rollercoaster performance epitomized by his matchup with Carolina in London where he threw for 400 yards and a touchdown, but also tossed five interceptions and lost a fumble. Winston has since moved on to New Orleans where he’s now the backup quarterback.
Mike Evans and Chris Godwin remain as Tampa’s primary receiving threats. They combined for 2,490 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns last year, making them one of four wide receiver tandems to each top 1,000 yards receiving.
Running back Ronald Jones returns after he and Peyton Barber, now with Washington, split carries in 2019.
