The Buccaneers are a hot spot right now with players structuring their contracts in a way that will help the team bring back most of their own from their successful Super Bowl roster. And why not? Tampa Bay has great odds at repeating and with the tagging of Chris Godwin, the extension of Lavonte David and the re-signing of Shaquil Barrett those odds became much better.
Oh yeah, and there is a guy named Tom Brady on the roster who also restructured his contract to allow for the Bucs to bring back more pieces.
One of those pieces is running back Leonard Fournette who according to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer is currently considering either a return to Tampa Bay or potentially signing with the Seattle Seahawks.
Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette is weighing an offer to remain in Tampa (Brady is recruiting him back), but the Seahawks have made a strong bid to poach him. Stylistically, Seattle would be an interesting fit.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 16, 2021
In 13 games during the 2020 regular season, Fournette rushed for 367 yards and six touchdowns as he split time with Ronald Jones II. But he became “Playoff Lenny” when he helped carry the Bucs through the postseason rushing for 300 yards and four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving).
If Brady is successful in his recruiting efforts, Tampa Bay will be bringing back yet another one of their own for at least 2021.
