Calais is expected to compete for special-teams work with 2021 NFL Draft seventh-round selection Jake Funk, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: A star on special teams in college, Calais is a speedster who played four games and recorded 152 kick-return yards as a rookie for the Rams last season. Not only will he compete with Funk for work, Los Angeles also added wide receiver DeSean Jackson through free agency, and the veteran could also be in the return-game mix. Incumbent returner, Nsimba Watson is also in the picture.

Jackson could have competition for snaps following the selection of wide receiver Tutu Atwell in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: After playing just eight games the past two years, Jackson signed an incentive-heavy contract with the Rams, which aligns with his inability to stay healthy. He has the potential to fill a deep-threat role for the Los Angeles passing attack, and even factor in on special teams. However, the Rams added Atwell as both a complement and insurance policy because of his speed and ability to stretch the field. Jackson's probably going to slide into a situational role with Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods atop the wide receiver depth chart, and Van Jefferson likely to take a step forward in his second season.

Brate restructured his contract to help the Bucs clear up $4.69 million in cap space, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: The new deal gives Brate a $2.425 million signing bonus, while his 2021 base salary dips to $1.075 million. The Bucs will have team options in 2022 and 2023, so this can mostly be viewed as a move to shift Brate's cap hit into future seasons. It should also solidify his roster spot in Tampa Bay, though targets will be hard to come by if fellow tight ends Rob Gronkowski and O.J. Howard stay healthy. Brate averaged only 2.1 targets per game last season, and that was with Howard out for most of the year. For fantasy purposes, the interesting part of Brate's renegotiation is that it freed up cap space for the Bucs to re-sign WR Antonio Brown.

Jones will share backfield duties again with Leonard Fournette in 2021 after the latter re-signed with the Buccaneers on a one-year deal March 26, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Jones logged a team-high 192 carries in 2020, with Fournette a distant second with 97 attempts while appearing in just one fewer game. However, the latter truly took off in the postseason, beginning with a wild-card win over Washington that Jones missed after suffering a quadriceps pull in pregame warmups. Given Fournette's productivity at the most critical time of year and his superior pass-catching skills, Jones could certainly find himself in a much closer timeshare arrangement in the coming campaign.

Calais could compete for a return specialist job this season, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The 2020 seventh-round selection was scooped off the Buccaneers practice squad last preseason and went on to play 34 special-teams snaps across four games for the Rams. Calais is an explosive speedster who piled up 2,493 kickoff return yards over four collegiate seasons with Louisiana-Lafayette. The Rams could add a running back in the 2021 NFL Draft or through free agency to make Calais' path to a roster spot more difficult, but as it stands, he appears set to compete with wide receiver Nsimba Webster for punt- and kick-return duties.
