Buccaneers Re-Sign Chase Edmonds

Monday, March 11, 9:40 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are re-signing running back Chase Edmonds to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday, according to a source. Edmonds will return to Tampa in 2024 as a backfield complement to Rachaad White, who should continue to command most of the running back touches for the Bucs in 2024. The 27-year-old Edmonds played in only 13 games in his first year with Tampa in 2023 and had just 49 carries for 176 yards and no touchdowns, adding 14 receptions for an additional 81 yards through the air. Unless White suffers an injury, Edmonds will be little more than a deep-league handcuff in fantasy. The Buccaneers also have Sean Tucker in the RB room and could add to the position in the upcoming NFL draft.

Rachaad White Impressed By Bucky Irving

Thursday, June 20, 4:29 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected former Oregon running back Bucky Irving in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, just months after Rachaad White finished his breakout campaign that consisted of 1,539 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns on 336 touches. White was a rare workhorse in today's NFL, so Irving is likely to get work behind him in 2024. When speaking about Irving, White said the two could be a great one-two punch. "Bucky does a great job of, first thing, competing, and two, learning," White said. "They're all brilliant and they all want to understand the game more, and things like that. We talk a lot. We've got a good relationship. It's huge. I think he brings a playmaker [ability] and in this offense, the more playmakers, the better. It'll be huge. The one-two punch would be nice." It will be interesting to see how offensive coordinator Liam Cohen distributes the backfield touches, but White should remain the clear starter in Tampa Bay. Irving is a Day 3 rookie who had a disappointing pre-draft process, so expectations should be tempered.
