Chris Godwin Still At One Buc Palace, Still Influencing

December 29th, 2021

Chris Godwin

Give yourself a visual of Chris Godwin lumbering around One Buc Palace wearing a new knee brace and struggling to handle a pile of Christmas gifts.

Get that man a shopping cart!

Assistant receivers coach Thaddeus Lewis, a Bucs quarterback coaching intern last year after his many years in the NFL, was a guest yesterday on the Buccaneers Radio Network. Lewis is always a strong listen, as most Duke University grads are.

Lewis chatted about the camaraderie among Bucs receivers and noted that Godwin’s blown knee (ACL) hasn’t kept him out of the fray at team headquarters.

“He’s around here every day and he’s encouraging guys. It’s crazy,” Lewis said of Godwin. “We just had Secret Santa, and I saw him with a knee brace on carrying this big thing. ‘I’m like, ‘You need some help?’ But that’s just the kind of guys we have in that room. Most people would have laid down or would have went into the tank, but he knows his future’s bright and he’s had a positive impact on [teammates].”

Lewis added that Godwin is telling everyone that he’ll be fine and that he’s “coming back big and strong and don’t worry about me.” The young coach also noted that Godwin has had a big impact on Sunday hero Cyril Grayson.

    We can not let this guy go in FA

  2. KnoxvilleBuc Says:

    Resigning Godwin is a must. Especially for the post Brady years. Way too valuable of a WR and teammate.

  3. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    Thanks for this coverage J.
    CG shall let NO go. We mention that here over and over, and that’s good;
    I’m sure JL and the math guy are doing everything possible for that to happen.
    Our ACDC guy is going to do the magic.
    Any word on the surgery?? When, where?????

  4. Jp09 Says:

    Godwin will be a Buc for a long time. You don’t let guys like that walk

  5. Listnfrmafar Says:

    If Brady goes, let him go to a place with a good qb where he can succeed.

  6. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Good guy, once again that’s the difference between a mature player and a rookie.

  7. ocala Says:

    I am very confident the Bucs will sign Godwin

  8. SlyPirate Says:

    The Bucs will do their best to resign Godwin but it does take two.

    The Bucs have a lot of mouths to feed in 2022.

  9. PanhandleBuc Says:

    He’s one of kind and worth every penny he will command in FA! Our front office know this and I’m confident we will find a way to pay him!

  10. SlyPirate Says:

    Dan Quinn turned down Jax request for an interview.

    Hey Leftwich, are you paying attention? Don’t take a bad position.

  11. buc15 Says:

    That’s my dawg!!!!

  12. Swampbuc Says:

    He must be a Buccaneer going forward. Sacrifice someone else valuable but not Godwin.

  13. Lokog Says:

    Sign him

  14. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    If I were Leftwich, and I was offered the head coaching position in Jacksonville, I would not turn it down.
    Leftwich is where he is because of Brady, and all our offensive talent, and not the other way around.
    Leftwich needs to get while the getting is good.
    Same with Bowles who flopped with the New York Jets, until he got here, with all our defensive talent.
    Word is that Vic Fangio may be let go in Denver, and he can replace Bowles in a heartbeat.

  15. Im not tired anymore we Super Bowl Champs!! Says:

    If we don’t re-sign him what about using the franchise tag for another year? To see how he recovers from the injury.

  16. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard loves Godwin. Class act. Top tier elite NFL WR.

    Still no legal action against the despicable saints?

  17. ModHairKen Says:

    Pay the man.

  18. Corndog Says:

    We need all the speed guys to get touches, to let the NFL defenses know we have new toys you need to worry about? Cover this 2 offense?

  19. cmurda Says:

    I don’t think a whole lot changes because of the rough injury. He still gets to virtually write his own check but there might be a little more in the way of injury outs. He’s such a valuable asset. Generational talent and human being.

  20. Pewter Power Says:

    Exactly the kind of guy Licht says he wants to keep so please make good on your word.

  21. Gerinda Says:


  22. Captain Dan Lawrence Says:

    God bless him, we need to figure out how to keep him after this year!

  23. Tony Says:

    NO did that on purpose after what happened with Winston this year. Go after Lattimore, Jordan, Jenkins, Gardner Johnson, Kamara, Ingram or Thomas because they feed off of those players.

  24. Stanglassman Says:

    I’d love the Bucs to resign him. Hopefully closer to 16 per than 20. The Bucs should resign AB before the season ends. If they can’t get it done with CG he become a must have. Bucs don’t have the WR depth we thought.

    I’d like them to go after Cordelle Paterson too. We know that the Bucs wanted someone like him when they drafted Darden. I haven’t given up on Darden but he is playing scared or tentative. Not the quick explosive guy we all saw in college and in training camp.

  25. captivajim Says:

    I agree–sign him now & pay the guy his real value..

    BUT , he’s got a 9-12 month recovery ahead of him—he should be getting the necessary surgery done Now, so he can help us next yr closing our the ’22 season & those playoff games !!!

  26. bucschamps Says:

    sign this man NOW!

  27. Delusional Intelligence Says:

    How far that WR room has come since the days of DeSean “MeSean” William “Return Punts When I want to” Jackson.

  28. Jp09 Says:

    Watched the saints game from this past weekend against the dolphins. Not once did I see PJ “the p u s s y” Williams tackle a player low. All his tackles were high or in the mid section that I saw. I could have missed some but didn’t se any like the hit on Godwin or attempt on Gronk.

    But, I think it was the first play of the game for the Dolphins offense either Gardner-Johnson or PJ had a personal foul for tackling Waddle about 3 yards out of bounds. Any F the saints
