This is a make or break year for you. This is the last year on your contract and you haven’t shown much in the last two years that would make the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want to keep you and your off the field issues. You got replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick for a brief time last year even after your three-game suspension was finished.

My Tampa Bay Buccaneers (that’s what I like to call em), had a season to inspire people in 2018. Inspire them to throw their televisions out the window!!! This season began with the unknown; how was Ryan Fitzpatrick going to respond with Jameis Winston being suspended for first three games of 2018. Well, he AND the rest of the Buccaneers responded with the greatest two-game stretch for Tampa Bay football since the end of the 2002 season, the NFC Championship which closed down Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia for good, and Super Bowl XXXVII versus Oakland.
