Buccaneers’ RB White “Can Be Special”


It’s no secret the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had one of the worst rushing attacks in the NFL in 2022. The majority of that rushing attack left with the departure of Leonard Fournette. That leaves second year back Rachaad White as the lead back in a room that includes Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Chase Edmonds and Patrick Laird.

After posting over 700 yards from scrimmage as a rookie, Buccaneers’ assistant head coach/run game coordinator Harold Goodwin thinks White has a leg-up.

“I would think right now ‘Chaad’s the lead horse until he’s not. As you guys saw last year, he’s capable, he can be special.”

But Goodwin has faith in the entire running back room.

“Love Rachaad White, love ‘Sneak’ [Ke’Shawn Vaughn], love Patrick, and Edmonds is coming in as well,” Goodwin stated. “I’m just excited for those guys, they are going to get opportunities and I think all of them are impressive. They all bring something to the table and let them fight it out. See who gets the most reps but obviously I think anyone of those guys can start.”

The Buccaneers seem confident in their running back room heading into training camp. With a new quarterback in tow, they’re definitely going to need to lean on the rushing attack.
