Summary

O.J. Howard's return in 2021 offers an infusion to the Tampa Bay offense after Howard was on a career-best pace through four games to open last season. Howard enters his fifth-year option season of contract control for the Buccaneers, a critical year for Howard's career path in Tampa Bay, or elsewhere, with a new upcoming contract. Howard has flashed big plays and highlight moments through four seasons, but has missed 24 games in the process and topped out with 34 receptions as a career-high mark. (May 14)

Latest News

Buccaneers | O.J. Howard almost all the way back (Sat May 15, 11:47 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (Achilles) is expected to attend mandatory minicamp in early June, according to comments from head coach Bruce Arians.'Yeah, he's really close now. He looks fantastic working out every day,' Arians said.

Our View: Howard gives the Buccaneers yet another weapon in the passing game. In 2020, Howard was on a career best pace over the first four games of the year. He's been on the road to recovery since last fall, and it sounds like he's progressing well. Expect the team to ease him back into action. If he gets back to where he was physically, the role is there for him to post near TE1 numbers in this offense.
