Chris Godwin: Living up to Expectations1 min read
Bruce Arians made it clear that he thought Chris Godwin could be a 100+ reception receiver and that he would never leave the field, it seems that Arians is sticking to that and utilizing Godwin everywhere he can.
The word coming out of AdventHealth Training Center is that Godwin is getting time in the slot, and for a lot of folks, that’s exactly what they wanted to see. I even said this myself. The Buccaneers were blessed when they were able to select him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft and Godwin’s ability is a Godsend.
Head Coach Bruce Arians said that the third-year receiver is continually improving, and his growth is more than evident. During his past two seasons, he caught 93 passes for 1,367 and 8 touchdowns. He did all of this in 7 starts.
“Yeah, it’s exactly what I expected of him – just continuation of growth from last year, playing in the slot, playing outside and being a go-to guy down the middle.”
Godwin becoming the Go to Guy in the middle, may not be an overused statement during the regular season, but it’s something I would like to see. I’ve always thought he would be a heck of a target while in the slot.
