“I Would Pick Him Up Tomorrow” – JoeBucsFan.com – Tampa Bay Bucs Blog, Buccaneers News

Scotty Miller

The suggestion that receiver Scotty Miller is on the 2022 roster bubble always has baffled Joe.

And now Joe has a kindred spirit in the national media, a guy at Bucs practice this week and at tonight’s Bucs-Titans game.

Former defensive back turned FOX game analyst Charles Davis not only works for FOX and CBS, he calls Titans preseason games.

During his call tonight (Joe was monitoring via NFL+), Davis noted how he doesn’t understand chatter in Tampa that Miller may not make the team this year.

Davis, who is not a hot-take guy, firmly proclaimed, “I would pick him up tomorrow” if he were a general manager and Miller was cut.

Miller, 25, is one of the fastest players in the NFL and had a very productive regular season and postseason in 2020. He’s a good football player who has thrived in the playoffs, and he can play special teams.

So why exactly would the Bucs dump Miller when they’ve been focused this offseason on receiver depth? That’s like setting out to build a dessert buffet and throwing out the chocolate mousse because you already have cupcakes.

Miller can rip the top off a defense and got open tonight but couldn’t haul in a Kyle Trask bomb, a very tough catch that might have been out of bounds. Miller also caught a laser from Trask over the middle on third down for 15 yards and a first down.

Yes, the Bucs receivers room is super deep. But not deep enough to dump Miller.

Sorry, but Joe has no desire to see Jameis Winston launching bombs to Miller in Week 2. Or Aaron Rodgers doing the same thing a few weeks later.
