RoJo Reveals His New Weight

August 10th, 2020

“Is that RoJo or Lavonte David?”

Since he arrived in the NFL, Ronald Jones has believed bigger is better.

Tampa Bay’s third-year running back checked in at the NFL Scouting Combine 2 1/2 years ago at 205 pounds. He was supposed to be a lightning quick change-of-pace guy who possibly could be a three-down back.

But RoJo struggled mightily as a rookie and was so proud last summer to be up to around 220 pounds.

He played the 2019 season around 218 pounds and today RoJo revealed what current photos of him bear out. He said he’s gained 7 or 8 pounds of muscle to check in at 225 pounds.

That’s a lot of beef for a guy who stands 5 feet 11 inches and is seemingly fat-free.

Joe hopes RoJo hasn’t lost any explosiveness. And hopefully the increased size gives RoJo more confidence, which it seems has been a bit of an issue for him through his development.

    He looked very good last year after already gaining a similar amount. I like this kid’s dedication. If he can figure out pass protection, and continue to improve his catching, we’re talking Pro Bowl

    I saw glimpses last season with ROJO. I think he is going to come into his own this season. He has bought in from the start ans been active training with Brady. Tom will give him plenty of chances to shine if he keeps the great attitude and applies what they practice during games.

    I am really rooting for the kid. He has matured a lot and I can’t wait to see how it all translates under the lights.

    Like I said a few weeks ago, RoJo is gonna xplode this season!

    It would seem the obsession with RoJo would cause a person to eventually point out that 15 carries per game @ 4.2 you is 1008 yards

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    4.2 ypc

  6. Godlovesbucs Says:

    Out of all his games, he has had 15 or more touches 7 times. He had 100 total yards in 3 of those 7 games. Also had a 100 yard game with only 12 touches. So if he he has a nearly 50% chance of going over 100 total yards when given touches, why not trust him?

  7. VAbucfan Says:

    If the Goat can’t get the best out of him, I don’t know who can! He had over 300 yards receiving last year, and that was splitting carries almost 50-50 with Barber. I believe in RoJo!!

  8. Sarasota Garey Says:

    It takes lots of players years to develop in the NFL, he came in at 20 years old immature, so maybe this year will be Rojos year, Ryan Jensen said it took him 3 years to learn how to play.

    Did anybody predict what Travis Henry did last year?

  10. Casual Observer Says:

    Sarasota – Three years? Let’s hope Wirfs is a faster learner than that. Maybe three weeks?

  11. Smashsquatch Says:

    Now if he can just improve his vision, smooth out his cuts, pick up the blitz and catch the ball his added muscle weight will pay big dividends. I do like his trajectory; however I need to see it on the field before I buy in.

    I really don’t understand the love affair some of you have with RoJo. The guy is not very good and a borderline bust. If you don’t believe me then let the actions of the organization tell the story. They drafted two running backs and signed McCoy. It tells you they don’t believe in RoJo. If they don’t, why should you?

    After the failed Jay-Miss experiment no one should have faith in any player that hasn’t done it before.

    There you go.

    @Joe, well yea because our RB stable was completely bare. Those same people that D-Rome claims have a love affair with ROJO, i bet you everyone of them was still wanting to draft a solid RB, and probably wanting to sign one too. Your gonna tell me the Actions of the Ravens drafting tell the story that they dont believe in Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards (who btw runs over 5ypc). The Colts were not fans of Mack and Hines? I dont know how much our coaching staff loves or distrusts ROJO, but our offseason moves if anything lean towards they actually do like him. We had nobody in the RB room and all we did was sign an unknown vaugn, and an old McCoy? C’mon Joe…

    Proud of you Rojo!

    I criticized your skinny arms rookie year.

    You took my advice. Well done.

    Now, we need a mauler at RG. Not a 6-6 former LT from a Div. III school.

    Last time I checked teams usually carry 4 RBs or more……and, we let Barber walk…..& the roster isn’t complete yet….

    Rojo is going to be a badasz this season. I hope this staff learned their lesson. Brady will tell them who gets more playing time. Arians knows Brady trumps Leftwich. Even LEFTWICH knows Brady trumps Leftwich. Its a beautifully orchestrated firing without the loss of employment.

  18. Cobraboy Says:

    What’s the over/under for how much crow RoJo detractors will eat this season?

  19. RGA Says:

    RoJo will be just fine and is the Bucs best back. Jim Brown in his prime would struggle to find yards behind last years O’line.

    If you are referring to ‘Derrick’ Henry then I did. I hopped on him early in the draft last yr.
