Cover 3: Should The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Trade TE OJ Howard?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OJ Howard

Cover 3 is a weekly feature column written by’s Tampa Bay Bucs beat writer Trevor Sikkema published every Tuesday. The column, as its name suggests, comes in three phases: a statistical observation, an in-depth film breakdown, and a “this or that” segment where the writer asks the reader to chose between two options.

Sikkema’s Stat of the Week

As seems to be the case with any year following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers football franchise, this season already feels like a roller coaster. In just six games, this team has already experienced quite the highs and lows. At its best, there was the 55-40 victory out in Los Angeles against the Rams, and the clutch end-of-game heroic defensive stand against the Panthers on national television. At its worst there was the six-turnover performance that took place in London in their last game, a 37-26 loss to Carolina, and before that a loss at home to a rookie quarterback in Daniel Jones in his first start.

Through it all, the Bucs currently sit at 2-4. Though spirits may be a bit down right now due to recency bias of their last game, the Bucs are still very much in range of a turn around this season, and mathematically that also includes a potential playoff berth.
