CBS Sports predicts the Buccaneers will trade for Cardinals RB David Johnson

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been searching for a legitimate starting running back for quite some time. Bruce Arians desperately needs one for his offense and the team could look to fix that this offseason.

CBS Sports has a quick and easy fix predicted for Tampa Bay. They have the Buccaneers acquiring Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson.

With Johnson’s cap hit scheduled to jump up to $14.2 million in 2020, this would be the perfect offseason for the Cardinals to dump him, and if that happens, the Bucs should be the first team on the phone trying to make a trade with Arizona. 

While Johnson would be a huge addition for the Buccaneers in and of himself, the article talks about the team pairing him with veteran quarterback Tom Brady. Tampa Bay has been listed as a potential landing spot for Brady.

Last season with the Cardinals, Johnson’s role was a roller coaster. The team seems to have lost faith that he can be an every-down starter due to his injury issues. Even with the lack of faith, the Buccaneers should have the belief that they can help him turn his career around.

He carried the football 94 times for 345 yards and two touchdowns. In addition to his rushing numbers, Johnson caught 36 passes for 370 yards and four touchdowns. Those numbers came in 13 games for the Cardinals.

Arians would utilize Johnson to the best of his abilities. He has worked with Johnson in the past during his years coaching Arizona. This would be a match made in heaven for Tampa Bay and Johnson.

Expect to hear plenty of rumors surrounding Johnson this offseason. Don’t be surprised if the Buccaneers are connected to those rumors. If they do acquire him, the 2020 season is going to be fun for fans in Tampa Bay.
