One of the most critical things the Bucs absolutely must do this off-season is get help for Jameis by giving him more playmakers he can get the ball to and let them make plays.
The Bucs lacked players that were capable of getting yards after the catch or breakout runs. According to sportingcharts.com, During the 2015 season, the Bucs ranked 16th in explosive plays but in 2016, that rank dipped to 30th in the NFL, only beating the Rams and Vikings, ouch.
I am going to discuss a few players the Bucs can bring in via free agency to help the offense produce more big plays.
WR Kenny Britt
This is personally my top receiver to bring in. He should come at a reasonable price and is a legit tried and true #2 receiver the moment he is signed. He would help Evans a lot being another big-bodied receiver that has respectable speed on the opposite side.
WR Desean Jackson
There has been chatter that he wants to go back to the Eagles, but if that ends up falling through, Jackson would add huge play ability. Jackson is among the elite in the NFL when it comes to the deep pass.
WR Kenny Stills
It has been reported that he wants to stay in Miami, but it might be tempting for him to get an offer from Bucs and play with Jameis along with being a focal point of the offense. He brings lots of speed and would help open things up for the offense.
RB Latavius Murray
Murray is capable of being an every-down back, he can run between the tackles, catch the ball, good in pass protection, and has a nose for the end zone. He would help bring stability to our backfield.
RB Christine Michael
Michael was having a pretty good season being the Seahawks lead back until Thomas Rawls came back from injury. He can be an every-down back for the Bucs if signed.
TE Mychal Rivera
Rivera has been with the Raiders, he doesn’t have the greatest stat line, but he can be an under the radar, cheap pickup, he brings wide receiver-like-athleticism to the TE position, can be a good counterpart for Brate.
