Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy said on Tuesday that he is willing to play what role the team has in mind for him this season.
Head coach Bruce Arians did not field that role during a video conference on Wednesday, but he gave a sense of what things will look like in the field this season. Arians said that Ronald Jones is No. 1 back and that everything else will be decided when the team goes through the training camp.
“RoJo is the main guy; he will carry the load, Arians said via the team’s website. “All the other guys are fighting for roles – [for] who goes in second place when he gets tired, maybe who is the third down. But they are all fighting for a role and special teams will have a lot to do with it. “
Jones may have had a prediction of how the depth map will be stacked. He said in July that he feels he is in a “fantastic position” to succeed in his third NFL season.
McCoy, Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Dare Ogunbowale and TJ Logan will fight for the roles behind Jones.
