Tom Brady is back, but he's hardly the only story for Bucs

  Tom Brady is back, but he's hardly the only story for Bucs TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tom Brady is back for a 23rd season, his third with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that’s hardly the only major storyline for the defending NFC South champions as they begin training camp. Todd Bowles is starting his second stint as a NFL head coach and the Bucs are stockpiling high-profile offensive talent to help Brady pursue an eighth Super Bowl title — as evidenced by the signing Wednesday of seven-time Pro Bowl receiver Julio Jones.Brady, who turns 45 soon, led the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns last season and cited “unfinished business” as one of the reasons he decided to end the brief retirement he announced in February.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers turned some heads when they signed receiver Julio Jones this offseason.

Jones agreed to a one-year $8 million contract with the Bucs in late July after he was released by the Tennessee Titans in mid-March.

Since Jones signed, he's been a good fit on the practice field and that was echoed by Bucs general manager Jason Licht on Thursday.

  Bucs’ GM Jason Licht says “We feel terrible” for Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen, carted off after knee injury Right after Tom Brady came out of retirement this offseason to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Buccaneers re-signed free agent center Ryan Jensen. Jensen, 31, has been the Bucs’ starting center since joining them on a four-year, $42 million contract in 2018 that made him the league’s highest-paid center at that time.

He’s been more than I expected, to be honest,” Licht said (first transcribed by ProFootballTalk).

Jones figures to be the WR3 for the Bucs behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Russell Gage was on track to be that guy until Jones signed. It also doesn't help that he's currently sidelined with a leg injury.

Jones has been one of the best receivers in the NFL throughout his career but has struggled to stay healthy the last two years. From 2014-2019, he finished with at least 1,400 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

Since then, he's had back-to-back seasons of less than 800 receiving yards with only four combined touchdowns.

If Jones can stay healthy this season, there's a good chance that he will get back to being that 1,000-yard receiver that all cornerbacks feared going up against.

Jones said he will no longer "pigheadedly" back Donald Trump. Instead, he is backing DeSantis, who he says went from "awesome" to "unbelievably good."During an Infowars broadcast this week, Jones declared that he would no longer "pigheadedly" support Trump.
