“Free Safety And Nickel”

April 24th, 2020

Where will new Bucs defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. play?

Winfield weighed in on that, and Joe’s very curious to get Bucco Bruce Arians’ answer later.

Winfield was specific with Joe and other local media, saying “free safety and nickel” when asked about now he perceived his fits in the Tampa Bay defense. Obviously, his knowledge of the defense largely is limited to what was discussed in video chats with Bucs officials, but the nickel answer was intriguing.

If the Bucs think Winfield is a nickel, then that would prompt fantastic competition for outside cornerback spots among Jamel Dean, Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting., and maybe the Bucs could find a veteran safety later or develop Mike Edwards, a third-round pick last year.

Arians should be chatting later tonight.

    Please tell Goodell to just read the card

    He sounds like a TOOL taking to the Fans

    Why is it so easy for nearly every team in the NFL to find a good running back except the Bucs?

    Negative. Exactly what we need at safety. Hard hitting ball hawk with speed all over. SMB was one of the best rookie nickel CB and I’ll keep Carlton Davis and Jamel Dean outside deflecting passes and this guy diving for picks. Loving the hard hitter safety set up with Winfield and Whitehead.

    Smh!!!!….Redskins just took our target Antonio Gibson of Memphis. I promise! Anthony McFarland from Maryland maybe at RB.

    Sounds like the end of mj Stewart

  8. SOEbuc Says:

    Please God let Zach Baun still be on the board with our third.

  9. DanBucsFan Says:

    Competition and depth are beautiful things

  10. Adrnagy Says:

    Another experiment.

  11. Adrnagy Says:

    Pick up Terrell Lewis or Jordan Elliott.

  12. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Madubuike or Zack Moss hopefully are still around when we pick. Both would be good moves.

  13. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    No experiment with Winfield. He is a ball hawking safety who will be a stud in our D. Whitehead and Edward’s can battle it out for the other spot. I wish Evan’s could get healthy but he cant be relied on at this point. Great pick for certain.

    Zack Moss would be my pick if he’s still there

  14. HeavyE Says:

    Can we trade for Jamal Adams?????

  15. ncbucsfan Says:

    Zack Moss may still be there

  16. rrsrq Says:

    Can Zack Moss catch?

  17. Greg Says:

    Great, exactly what we needed, another 2nd round bust nickel back, thanks again Licht, you jacka$$!

  18. HeavyE Says:

    Well, are 3rd pick isn’t any better…….Go Bucs!!!!

  19. unbelievable Says:

    Another nickel πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Winfield =MK Stewart=R. Smith Still need to trade Howard & lazy ass D. Smith for T. Williams. Of course listening to BA & Licht Smith is the best LT in the leaugue. Thays why they overpaid him. What a genius move.
