According to Michael Lombardi, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to trade tight end O.J. Howard.
Lombardi says he was told by a league source that Bucs are trying to trade O.J. Howard: "I think Howard's got a great name, but I think there's an instinctive issue going on. I think he's going to be available." Said he wouldn't be surprised if he's traded next week. (28:30 mark) https://t.co/BtsoLD5Fjv— Greg Auman (@gregauman) April 15, 2020
For whatever reason Bruce Arians hates using tight ends. He just does. So I am all for Howard getting out of Tampa even with Tom Brady joining the team. Howard is still a young and immensely talented tight end who on the right team could certainly have tons of real and fantasy potential. If Brady hadn’t just left, I would’ve said I want to see him in New England, but instead, how about the Jaguars? Give Gardner Minshew a big threat in the middle of the field? Or the Bengals, another weapon for Joe Burrow? All I know is that if Howard does get traded, I’m going to have a hard time not targeting him in fantasy drafts.
