The Tampa Bay Secondary has been a patchwork of former and new players. And with the carousel-ing that has been going on, with the defensive rotation this season, it seems to be coming together slowly but surely. But, the linebackers and the down lineman have played consistently. Arbitrarily. With all the pieces in place, V- Jax’s return and the return of Austin Sefferain-Jenkins, The Buccanneers could be looking at a playoff run. Not just fantasizing about it.
“Rookie Jameis Winston isn’t the only reason the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been able to turn around their season following a slow start.”We talked about being relevant. We are. We’re in the mix,” Smith said. “Everything that we set in front of us is there. So that’s the carrot. It would be great to win two in a row, great to get to .500. All of those things, though, are automatically built into what our goals are weekly.” – Reported by Fred Goodall
