The 2017 Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trending upward. After finishing with a winning record last season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to make the playoffs in 2017 for the first time in 7 seasons. The Bucs have their franchise quarterback in Jameis Winston. He has continued to show improvement with every season in the NFL. Wide receiver Mike Evans is a Pro-Bowl caliber player providing Winston with a huge down-field target. In the 2017 NFL draft, the Bucs added an athletic tight end in OJ Howard. Howard and Evans will be tough to cover with their exceptional size; both will be great redzone targets for Winston. In the offseason, Tampa Bay also signed speedster wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Jackson has the perfect down-field speed to complement the possession oriented receivers of Evans and Howard. The Jackson signing shows that the Bucs are determined to surround Winston with the necessary playmakers to make a post-season run.
Tampa Bay is going all-in in 2017. The Bucs signed defensive tackle Chris Baker and safety JJ Wilcox in the offseason. Both are accomplished starters who should be immediate upgrades on defense. Linebacker Lavonte David is a dominant play-maker at middle linebacker. Up front, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy anchors Tampa Bay's front seven. McCoy is complimented by pass-rusher Robert Ayers. If the Bucs' defense holds strong, Tampa Bay will be a playoff team in 2017.
In 2017, Raymond James Stadium will play host to the following opponents: Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and New York Jets.
