When Tom Brady signed with the Buccaneers, he knew he was joining an offense loaded with weapons. One of them being RB Ronald Jones, who proved last season that he’s more than capable of being a feature back. In 16 games 9 of them starting, Jones rushed for 724 yards, 6 TDs, 4.2 YPC. Jones also showed he had much better hands than previously thought with 31 rec, for 309 yards.
Having Tom Brady at QB is going to open up the running lanes for Jones. That plus the fact that Brady loves using play-action means the Bucs are most likely going to run the ball more often than they did last season to balance out the offense and it doesn’t take much of a hole to spring Jones for a big gain using his speed and athletic ability.
Not many RBs can stop on a dime and make a 90-degree cut, but Jones can. He’s an RB that’s extremely exciting to watch, and this year, he will break out as one of the best in the NFC.
