Chris Godwin: We have faith in Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ryan Griffin


Thursday’s news of a three-game suspension for quarterback Jameis Winston leaves the Buccaneers in position to start a backup quarterback in the opening weeks of the 2018 season.

The presumed No. 2 is Ryan Fitzpatrick, who re-signed with the Bucs this offseason after starting three games while Winston was injured in 2017, with Ryan Griffin in the No. 3 spot on the depth chart. Wide receiver Chris Godwin called both players really smart guys on Sirius XM NFL Radio on Thursday and said that the team has faith in either one of them to get the job done while Winston is out.

After spending the offseason working with them, center Justin Britt is feeling bullish about what those changes will mean for the team. Britt said the two coaches have brought a different perspective in a real good way.

Part of that perspective has been kind of re-introducing us to our old attitude when it comes to building a strong running game after struggling on that front over the last two seasons. Britt also noted that the team has younger players than they have in past years and thinks that shift has had a positive impact.

I think this is the youngest we’ve been since I’ve been here, so you see a lot of speed, a lot of energy, a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of want-to and not a lot of have-to, Britt said, via the team’s website. The attitude is right, I’m excited heading into camp after having the OTA and minicamp that we’ve had. If we stay on course like the way we are, I don’t see why we can’t be Cheap Jerseys Coupon Code one of the top Cheap Jerseys Bike offenses in the league. We have the tools, we have the coaching and we have the attitude, so we just have to have a good six weeks leading up to camp, and hit it full stride.
