Bobo Wilson: Where Does He Fit In?
Jesus “Bobo” Wilson has been a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster for 2 season since being signed as an UDFA in 2017. Wilson has been on quite the ride with Tampa as he has been on the practice squad, the active roster, and released multiple times. Wilson has a great relationship with QB Jameis Winston and caught his first and only TD in the NFL from Winston in the 2017 season against the Carolina Panthers. Bobo has been used as a slot receiver but also a special teams player.
Wilson will have some competition this season at both slot receiver and special teams player with the addition of rookie Scotty Miller and 2nd year player Justin Watson. All 3 of them will more than likely be fighting for that 4th spot in the receiving lineup. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Breshad Perriman are the first 3 receivers on the depth chart.
Bobo Wilson has fought hard to make his presence known on the team and will be on the roster whether it’s as the speedster or as a special teams player. His 70 yards and 1 TD in 2 seasons don’t really stand out but he has only played 8 games in his career and 10 kick returns for 284 yards. The Bucs will truly need a speedster alongside Evans and Godwin which Wilson and Perriman fit that description. Bobo Wilson will be a Buccaneer and a playmaker this season under Head Coach Bruce Arians.
