Tampa Bay likely to employ RBBC
Ronald Jones, Peyton Barber, Charles Sims to be involved
By: Doug Orth | Jun 11 2018, 7:40 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
(Ronald Jones) will go into training camp with every expectation of adding the big-play threat that's been sorely missed in the last two years. He'll share the load with third-year pro Peyton Barber, and Charles Sims will have a chance to keep the third-down role he held last season. Jones understanding the offense and pass protection and all a running back must do beyond just running the ball is a major prerequisite to him gaining the full trust of his coaches. Establish that now, and he's in line for a larger role earlier in his rookie season. (Tampa Bay Times - Greg Auman)

FFToday's Take: The faster Jones accomplishes the last part (understanding the offense and pass protection, etc.), the quicker he will emerge as the primary and perhaps every-down option in Tampa Bay. The Bucs have already said they envision Jones becoming a three-down back, and he possesses the kind of explosiveness the Bucs simply don't have otherwise. Jones may start out in a committee, but he seems like a pretty good bet to own the backfield before 2018 comes to a close.
