Losing DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries wasn’t ideal for the Buccaneers, but more targets for this potential Year 3 breakout isn’t a bad thing.

It didn’t take long for Howard to start dominating at the NFL level, standing out as one of the league’s best tight ends before suffering a season-ending sprained foot and ankle as a rookie in 2017. And he proved last season to be plenty capable of supplying top-10 numbers as a complementary pass-game option. Ian Hartitz
