Bruce Arians was asked if he would use Howard and Brate together and his answer goes against the mainstream belief that Arians doesn’t use his tight ends.
“Yeah, we’re a two-tight end offense. That’s what we are, so you’re going to see a hell of a lot of them.”
We knew when the playbook was handed out that this offense was going to be “very tight end friendly”, and when using Howard and Brate together in a dual TE set the Buccaneers have been highly successful. You just can’t have the talent that we have in those two guys without working them heavily into your offensive scheme. The 2019 regular season cannot get here fast enough.
