On what is an extremely potent offense, questions still remain for the Bucs offensive line. So far this mini camp they still have yet to practice together as a unit with several players watching from the sidelines due to injuries, but HC Bruce Arians remains confident they will develop chemistry before the start of the regular season.
“It should be really good. We’ve had one or two guys miss quite a bit. So, about five guys haven’t been out on the field together, which I’d like to see some chemistry that way, but we have plenty of time when we put the pads on to get that done. You can see they’re seeing every blitz known to man that they’ve seen this spring and you see them starting to see it pop where they’re coming from and it’s not easy to pick up. I’ve been down this road with Todd once before and it’s tough on the offense the first time around.”
With the re-signing of LT Donovan Smith and the signing of free agent G Earl Watford, the offensive line takes up roughly 24.8 percent of the salary cap, so let’s hope Arians is right. If not, it’s gonna be a long season for Jameis Winston and the rest of the Bucs offense, which will leave fans with much to be desired.
