The Buccaneers have already given rookie quarterback Jameis Winston some offensive weapons to work with in Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. You can even include Louis Murphy in there as well since Winston has already talked about Murphy previously.
But the 21-year-old signal caller yearns for multiple weapons to throw to and on Tuesday he got his first shot at working with his newest target, tight end Tim Wright.
“Man, he is amazing,” Winston said. “I prayed for him during the stretches. I had to thank God for having Tim right here. I made him laugh and just accepted him.”
While Winston can show his appreciation for having Wright in pewter, the third-year tight end still has to learn the new Buccaneer offense. Fortunately, he already has built a comfort level for it.
“It’s something I’m pretty familiar with, some of the conceptual things,” Wright said. “We’ve got some guys in place that can make some plays and when we all just put our efforts together as a collective group on offense, we can do some things.”
Both will have ample time to build chemistry before the season starts. As Wright points out, if the team can collectively get things going, then they can potentially be a threat. Something the Buccaneers’ offense was far from last season.
