Dirk Koetter: “Peyton Barber is our starting RB”
The NFL Owners meeting is taking place this week in Orlando, Florida. All team’s respectable Coaches, GM’s, and Owners are all in attendance.
Its the type of responses in the Interviews that kind of gives you a glimpse on what the team has in store for the upcoming season. Especially with Free Agency winding down, the main focus right now is the NFL Draft.
Its really clear that we need a new RB. It goes back to last year when everyone was #ShookForCook. Will we see the Buccaneers target a RB in the higher rounds of the Draft? Not so sure.
Per Jenna Laine (ESPN); She interviewed HC Dirk Koetter at his scheduled press conference this morning and this is his response…. “Peyton Barber is our staring running back right now.”
There was reports the Buccaneers targeted multiple RBs in FA such as Jerick McKinnon and with a loaded RB Draft Class, it makes you wonder what the team has in store for plans going forward and with Peyton Barber.
