Odell Beckham Jr: Tom Brady wishes come true with the Buccaneers

Tom Brady has his way with the Buccaneers. Can we really rule anything out? Just so we can get ahead of this, the Buccaneers are almost assuredly not going to add Odell Beckham Jr. OBJ’s price tag is too high, and it makes little sense for the Bucs to move off of Godwin for a […] Odell Beckham Jr: Tom Brady wishes come true with the Buccaneers - The Pewter Plank - The Pewter Plank - A Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Report: Buccaneers getting Odell Beckham, Jr. could be ‘challenging’ if Tom Brady wants him

Browns’ Odell Beckham (13) waves to fans prior to the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Cleveland at Raymond James Stadium in August of 2019. | Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports Recent reports had this pairing as one to watch this offseason. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in a tight spot with their salary cap situation. With potential help on the horizon to free up some money with reports that quarterback Tom Brady and the Bucs are close to a restructure, they would still be in a tough position to even bring back the core of their Super Bowl roster that are...

After profiling potential fits for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and upcoming free-agents Adrian Peterson, Haason Reddick, Patrick Peterson and K.J. Wright, next up for me is Los Angeles Rams linebacker Leonard Floyd. If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lose Shaquil Barrett to free-agency, they could find his replacement in Floyd who would be looking forward to a February 2022 homecoming, in Super Bowl 56.

Tampa Bay should re-sign Ryan Succop while they have the chance

After spending years chasing place-kickers, drafting them, bringing in free agents, what have you, the Bucs, like the proverbial blind pig, finally found their perfect acorn and need to sign Ryan Succop now or risk another fiasco looking for his replacement.

How the Buccaneers can address their RB situation

Matt Breida #22 of the Miami Dolphins in action against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ With names like James White, Rex Burkhead, and Najee Harris being thrown around as guys to fill the hole in the Bucs RB room, I wanted to take a look at a few names that people aren’t really talking about. With free agency and the draft approaching more quickly every day, we’re going to see a lot of the questions we have about this team answered. Will Chris Godwin be tagged? Will Shaq Barrett be back?

Free Agent Spotlight: WR, T.Y. Hilton

Photo by Nic Antaya/ Could the longtime Indianapolis receiver be the next to join forces with Tom Brady in Tampa? For several years now, wide receiver has been one of the biggest positions of strength for the Buccaneers. It certainly was in 2020, with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson all contributing and making for a group that was five-deep. Not to mention, Justin Watson has shown to be a capable pass-catcher himself and even he was typically Tampa Bay’s sixth choice at the position last season. However, for as strong as the...

Report: Buccaneers, Tom Brady ‘getting closer’ to restructuring contract

Photo by Patrick Smith/ The veteran quarterback is doing his part to help the team bring back the core for another run. The Buccaneers are full steam ahead in their efforts of retaining most of the roster from 2020. Part of that effort is restructuring contracts, including veteran quarterback Tom Brady.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Top 10 worst free agency signings in team history

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren’t always great at this free agency stuff. The 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl LV with a roster that resembled the 2014 NFL All-Pro Team. Tom Brady, Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski, and Ndamukong Suh were all All-Pros that season.
