Buccaneers place franchise tag on Chris Godwin on Tuesday

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have assigned their franchise tag on wide receiver Chris Godwin on Tuesday.

What It Means:

For the second straight year, Godwin received the franchise tag from the Buccaneers. Without Tom Brady under center, the 26-year old should still play a key offensive role alongside Mike Evans despite a probable lower ceiling.

Per Pro Football Focus on 124 targets last season, Godwin ranked 11th among receivers with a 81.3 offensive rating.
