We continue our pre-camp position-by-position look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the tight ends.
This is one of the deepest positions on the team. There are no superstars, but there are four guys capable of earning significant playing time.
At the moment, free-agent pickup Brandon Myers might have the inside track for the starting job, but that could change if someone steps up in training camp. The Bucs have very high hopes for second-round pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins, but he might be behind the curve after missing almost the entire offseason program. At the very least the Bucs view Seferian-Jenkins as their tight end of the future.
But let’s not forget about Tim Wright, who caught more than 50 passes as a rookie last year. A converted wide receiver, Wright never is going to be a great blocker. But he could fill a role as a pass catcher.
Then, there’s Luke Stocker. His career has been disappointing, but he still has some potential. Stocker needs to stay healthy and have a big camp to secure a roster spot.
