Brady And Rojo Work Out Privately

July 16th, 2020


No word yet on whether Tom Brady has been working privately with O.J. Howard, Antonio Brown or the Buccaneers’ player personnel department, but he has been working man-to-man with a Tampa Bay running back.

That would be Ronald Jones, per a story today on shared the following quote after noting the 42-year-old and the 22-year-old were engaged.

“I just tried to soak in everything he was telling me, his attention to detail,” Jones said. “We were running against air, but just still, being out there with him, getting that chemistry down, I felt that was important and it’s going to help us when camp starts soon.” also shared that RoJo has been putting in a load of effort to improve his pass-catching this offseason.

This is cool to hear. While Bucco Bruce Arians already has said third down is not for RoJo, that certainly could change for a variety of reasons.

At the Super Bowl, RoJo put his foot down and demanded the rock. Working 1-on-1 with Brady is a great way to make that happen.

    Awesome news. I wish Rojo the best, but he has a long way to go.

  2. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete Says:

    Rojo will eventually be the best RB in the NFL.

    As soon as this season…

    Remember I said that…

  3. BucEmUp Says:

    Rojo would be easily a top 15 bacl in the league if he were used properly.

  4. Lokog Says:

    If he could just break long runs for touchdowns

  5. Lokog Says:

    If only he can break long runs for touchdowns

  6. SB Says:

    Just watch guys!
    Also don’t sleep on Vaughn. Dude gave me nightmares for a couple years as a Gators fan.
    Brady sees the diamonds.

  7. SB Says:

    Joe you Really need to have your IT guy adjust your filters if the above comment triggered it. smdh.

    “If only he can break long runs for touchdowns”

    He can break for pretty long runs. I think it was in the Giants game last year that he went 40 yards?

    SB, seriously? How long have you been here? You still don’t get the comments sometimes delay showing up? Lol

  9. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I’ve believed in Rojo since the beginning. I’m not stopping now.

  10. Robert James Says:

    I saw where ROJO bulked up… that rarely works for an rb

  11. David Says:

    Let’s not mention Antonio Brown anymore.
    He’s not a buccaneer and will never be one.

    Drew Rosenhaus has fired him!! LoL. When he won’t represent you and can’t squeeze a dime out of you, that’s pretty F’n bad.

  12. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’m glad ROJO is working with Brady….I’m glad he worked on his pass catching skills in the off season…but…

    ROJO’s pass catching numbers were already good…better catch % than Melvin Gordon or David Johnson…true he has to back it up again this year but his numbers catching the ball were not bad at all.

    What I hope he spent a ton of time this past off season working on was his pass blocking skills. Given his improvement at catching last year…this year should have pass blocking as the #1 off season challenge.

    ROJO’s first matador ole’ missed block that gets Brady clobbered might be his last if Vaughn is as good as some suspect.

    No more turds

  14. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    It is nice to know that these guys are all working on their craft during these crazy “Sickness” times.

  15. gp Says:

    I’m sure that Brady has told him what he expects from him.
    If he meets Tom’s expectations, we should all be pleased with the results

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    Rojo finally showed some flashes last year. Teammates working together is in the best interest of everyone.

  17. BucEmUp Says:

    Honestly though if anyone other than rojo is going to flourish I think its Ray Calais with his home run ability.He def wont be a thrid down back too small but he and rojo are noth home runs waiting to happen

  18. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Guys, you have to allow the site to do it’s thing before your comments show up. Just because it’s not there after submission doesn’t mean it won’t be there a little later. As evidenced by duplicate submissions and comments about undue moderation. You really have to talk major crap to get run.

  19. Jason Says:

    Robet James

    Last offseason Rojo put on 15lbs of muscle and actually got faster. If he’s doing the same this year I’m all for it.

  20. Hodad Says:

    With Brady it doesn’t matter what down it is, he’ll throw the ball to the open man. If that’s Rojo in the flat instead of Evans in triple coverage, Rojo will get the ball. All of our backs will be more involved in the passing game because of this. Our backs will be all around better do to Brady’s ability to check in, and out of plays.

  21. gp Says:

    With the talent(on paper) that Brady will have around him, we may not see many 3rd downs.

  22. TSmitty3000 Says:

    With running backs, it isn’t solely catching the ball. It is taking a 2 yard swing pass and turning it into an 8 yard gain. James White, Dion Lewis, and Kevin Faulk were able to do that for Brady. Kamara does that now for Brees. Let’s see if RoJo can do that, because I don’t want to count on a rookie back who hasn’t had any camp yet.

  23. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Just having a tackle on the right side who can run block will help Rojo. While Dotson was slightly better than average in pass blocking, he was the worst run blocker in the league last year.

  24. teacherman777 Says:


    Peace Eagle! Roll Green!

    Dotson had weak arms and no push. You are correct. Awful run blocker.

    Also, Cappa next to him never pushes DT’s off the line.

    Cappa gets pushed back on over 60% of our run plays.

    Or he gets juked silly.

    Cappa has no lateral movement. He gets no push. Hes tough and crazy buthe is 6% and 300 pounds. Hea too think for an OG.

    Never forget, Licht gifted Pamphile, Benenoch and Cappa starting positions to “gain experience.”

    Well, they gained experience all right. And we have had the worst running game in the league 3 years straight.

    Coincidence? No. Licht forced 3 late round lineman into the RG spot.

    As Winston took a ton of hits and our RB’s were hit behind the line more than any ither team.

    Its the not RB! Its RG! Pamphile, Benenoch, and Cappa.

    Heed my warning. Get a RG.

  25. bojim Says:

    Was with him since draft night. If we get a season he will show up big. He’s been working with Brady from the start.

  26. Nick2 Says:

    I feel Rojo has gotten the shaft. First Koetter who also never played Cappa stupidly benched him effectively for the entire season and then last year they had Peyton (Not Walter) Barber ahead of him because he was such a prolific rusher. I am pretty certain by seeing how he seems to get better as the game goes on that this guy needs the carries to get in a rythm and Leftwich never let that happen. If he and Brady can get on the same page watch out. That Rams game showed me what he had and if it werent for stupid penalties by the O line that would have been his coming out party.
