“He Gonna Be Annoyed At Me; I’ll Tell You That”

May 23rd, 2020

Cameron Brate is a little worried about pissing off NFL legend and new Bucs quarterback Tom Brady, but Chris Godwin is looking forward to it.

Who doesn’t love Chris Godwin, arguably the best draft pick of the Jason Licht era?

The Pro Bowl receiver was chatting this week on Buccaneers.com was asked about learning of Brady landing in Tampa. Godwin talked about thought talk of Brady potentially signing with the Bucs was a pile of nonsense. And then when it appeared Brady would choose between the Chargers and Bucs, Godwin said he was thinking there’s no way the choice will be Tampa.

The shock wore off and now Godwin says he is fired up by opportunities to pick Brady’s brain, which he said will continue relentlessly. “He gonna be annoyed at me; I’ll tell you that,” Godwin added.

Joe loved the spirit with which Godwin said all that, and Joe believes that’s what will happen.

The Bucs’ fourth-year receiver is marching into a contract year and, with the Brady in town and the Bucs playing repeatedly in prime time, Godwin is primed to become an $18 million-per-year receiver. Joe is confident Godwin knows it and is smart enough to embrace everything he can to become a mega-rich star.

    Godwin goes about his business the right way. Looks and sounds like Devin is on the same program.

    It will be interesting to see how we handle ME, CG, TB and a few others (Jensen, Gronk, Howard). It’ll depend on how they play and our results this year, but if we’re Belichek, he’d trade ME. Sell high. It hurts to type that, I just can’t see CG going anywhere.

    In BA I Trust!

    I cringe every single time someone on this site or twitter mentions getting rid of Mike Evans…

    WHY WOULD WE DO THAT? You do not improve your team by getting rid of Hall of fame caliber players!

    Suh is gone after this year, JPP likely as well. LVD is nearing the off-ramp too. There will need to be a lot of resources poured into that front 7 this next off-season. Godwin cannot go anywhere.

    AwshBucs it’s the same people that ran Dungy and Gruden out of town…and started building “the den of depression?”

  5. Sport Says:

    Awsh – me too. But there will have to be some difficult decisions, the highest paid players are often the first place to look.

    Would you rather ME get traded or lose Godwin? Sure I want both too, then who else has to go?

    It will be a HUGE next year. I’m just saying, I’d probably keep Godwin if I could only afford one highly paid receiver.

    Yucky. I know.

    In BA I Trust!

  6. Craig Says:

    Even if Evans doesn’t get a lot of balls thrown his way, he always draws a safety to him.

    In a three or four receiver set that means that there will be no safety over the top ans Godwin will run wild, again. With consistently in stride passes he will get 1550-2000 yards this season.

    That is worth 18 mil, especially when said receiver is as down to earth as Godwin.

    I think more attention will be put more on CG than ME this year

  8. dmatt Says:

    If I had to make a decision between keeping CG is ME, then ME has to go…Mike Evans that is😝 CG is durable n has more tangibles than ME n doesn’t push off wine, argue, n complain to ref then immediately look for a PI on the defender. I believe once ME is gone, CG will ball better than ME n will have game changer numbers. Tyler Johnson will be the #2 receivers n I believe Scotty Miller will shine with Desean Jackson like speed n moves. Justin Watson May find himself on the chopping blocks if he don’t step up to the plate this year. We have that Cyril gray with blazing speed from LSU n Mickey’s with similar moves to Tyrek hill. The competition at wr is on like no other year at Bucs camp.

    I will never forget a buddy of mine asking me who all I wanted in that draft.
    My response verbatim was ” As long as we land Chris Godwin I don’t care!”
    I love being right!

    Let’s just focus on this year. We can worry about next year next year.

    Or be like the dog that worries about the 2030 season.

    I know a lot of people scoff at the importance of character on a football team, but I can’t help feeling good about how many really decent people we seem to have on our team now.

    “Suh is gone after this year, JPP likely as well.”

    I’m pretty sure JPP did a 2-year deal.

  13. Joe Says:

    I’m pretty sure JPP did a 2-year deal.

    Only $2.5 million guaranteed in 2021.

    When was the last time we worried about not having enough money to sign our own drafted players? Crazy. I know JL misses alot, but he’s the first GM we’ve had that started drafted well enough to not be able to sign everyone when the rookie deal is up. That’s pretty good in my books and worth keeping him longer.
