The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are gearing up for something special for the upcoming NFL season.
Tom Brady is back for his 23rd season but he hasn’t shown signs of slowing down after tallying 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns last season.
Both of them had over 1,000 receiving yards last season and combined for 19 touchdowns.
An injury-free Jones gives Tampa Bay an All-Pro wideout as their third option.
However, their advantage doesn’t end there as they also signed Russell Gage to a three-year, $30 million contract.
Unfortunately, his stint with the Super Bowl LV champions hit a little roadblock, as NFL insider Dov Kleiman shared.
#Buccaneers WR Russell Gage left practice early with a leg injury on Wednesday – it is considered minor, according to NFLN.

Kleiman tweeted, “#Buccaneers WR Russell Gage left practice early with a leg injury on Wednesday – it is considered minor, according to NFLN.”
If that’s the case, he could be back on the field in no time.
The team can use his talent, which enabled him to collect 770 yards and four touchdowns last season.
Having Gage, Jones, Godwin, and Evans at the top of their game is a scary thought for all opponents.
Buccaneers Are A Cheat Code
It’s unfair to have two elite receivers in Evans and Godwin leading the way.
Then, Jones is a solid third option who can also bounce back from injuries and gain 1,000 yards.
Tampa Bay can also spread opposing defenses thin with Gage in formation.
Brady will be able to maximize their skill and march the offense down the field.
By adding Jones and Gage, the Buccaneers reiterate their intention of winning it all in 2022.
Once the season starts, it’s a matter of putting all of the pieces together.
