Arians Envisions Chris Godwin Never Coming Off The Field

Adam who?

Bucco Bruce Arians was opening up a little today about what his offense might look like.

There was no sugarcoating. Chris Godwin is expected to be a very busy man. Arians said he sees Godwin as “close to a 100-catch guy.”

He also added that Godwin can be a player who never comes off the field because he’ll be pegged as a slot guy who can also thrive outside.

Godwin has proven himself and has never missed a game, and it’s obvious Arians sees him making a leap under his coaching staff and in his offense.

Arians talked about new receiver Breshad Perriman being a true deep-shot threat but Arians emphasized that those shots are only a once-in-a-while thing. He’s also excited because he said Evans and Godwin also are true deep threats.

Worried about Godwin’s two bad games late in the season? Godwin bounced back in the final two games and Joe pressed Godwin after the season to talk about the blip on his successful campaign. His response is linked here, and Joe was soothed by it.

    I’d hope he’s not coming off the field, he’s the #2 WR on the team.

    But yeah, as for those bad games from Godwin, it was when it was raining and he couldn’t wear his gloves. Hopefully he should spend the entire offseason practicing without gloves, since you can’t have a little rain taking out your #2 WR.

    Godwin is a MONSTER. We are set with Evans/ Godwin for a solid 1-2 combo. Let’s hope Jameis can accurately and effectively get them the ball this year. Go Bucs

  3. Joeypoppems Says:

    Arians sees Godwin as a slot guy… who possibly couldve seen that coming?

    But go ahead and keep mourning the loss of Hump and praying for Hunter Renfrow people…

    As ive been saying for weeks, only weapons missing are a WR to challenge Bobo Wilson for Perriman’s backup role and a RB that can catch. We have everything else

  4. Pete Mitchell Says:

    Sure hope he can handle the work load, seem to remember him dealing with cramps/exhaustion even in his limited role.

  5. Bucsfanman Says:

    I said it when we drafted him. The kid’s a gamer. He should have played instead of DJax as the #2 last year, but I digress.

  6. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    I envision Evans and Godwin in two man formation and Godwin moving to the slot in a 3 man formation. Breshad Perriman will then move to the outside opposite of Evans.

    “Dont forget attacking the worst pass defenders (linebackers) with the running backs”
