Randy Moss has one concern about Tom Brady playing for Bucs
Randy Moss knows firsthand just what Tom Brady is capable of. But the Hall of Fame wide receiver has one concern about his ex-teammate playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Moss appeared on ESPN’s “Get Up” on Tuesday morning and shared that he is concerned about the protection Brady will have from Tampa Bay’s offensive line.
“I think my biggest concern for Tom — you’ve seen what he has, as far as his weapons. I’m not concerned about the running game. I’m concerned about Tom’s protection,” Moss said, via 247 Sports. “They were unable to protect Jameis Winston for so long. If you compare quarterbacks, Jameis and Tom are not mobile quarterbacks. So, if they couldn’t protect Jameis, how are they going to protect Tom Brady?
“I think that’s my biggest concern for me going into the season with the Tampa Bay Bucs.”
Tampa Bay was 22nd in the NFL last season with 2.9 sacks allowed per game. They seemed to recognize the issues with their line, which may have played a role in their decision to select Tristan Wirfs with their first-round pick this year.
Despite the offensive line, Moss still thinks the Bucs have a lot of “upside.”
In Tampa, Brady may have his best wide receivers since he teamed with Moss on the Patriots from 2007-2010. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are among the best receivers in the league. The Bucs also have some capable tight ends in OJ Howard, Cameron Brate, and Rob Gronkowski.
