With Tom Brady's retirement and subsequent un-retirement, the offseason for our Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been particularly turbulent.
Ali Marpet's retirement, the departure of prominent veteran free agents, the appointment of Todd Bowles to take Bruce Arians' place as he transitions to an advisor role, and Gronk's retirement are just a few examples.
Tom Brady's ongoing controversy (leaks of his plans to join the dolphins and then his absence from the team which now appears to be due to personal issues at home). For their crew, there is a lot to unpack.
The departure of Amari Cooper, who was the Cowboys' second-leading receiver overall and their club's leading receiver versus us last season, is one significant change for the team this year.
Cooper was traded to the Browns in a somewhat dubious move that undoubtedly removed their team's dynamic playmaker.
To continue carrying the weight alongside Michael Gallup and rookie Jalen Tolbert, they put a lot of faith in CeeDee Lamb, their top receiver from the previous season.
They will benefit from Dak Prescott's effectiveness, who had the fourth-highest completion % in the league last season, which should improve the way his receivers are perceived.
Parsons can easily pursue the passer, drop back into coverage, and detect ball carriers before they reach the line of scrimmage. He is a game-changer.
