Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Chris Godwin Thriving in New Offensive Role Under Liam Coen

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin received some exciting news as the team announced that he will be moving back to the slot position under new offensive coordinator Liam Coen. This shift is expected to maximize Godwin’s impact on the field, as he has proven in the past that he can do the most damage from the slot.

Coach Todd Bowles expressed his confidence in Godwin’s ability to excel in the slot, stating, “He’s an inside guy by nature. He can play outside, but he can make a living inside doing a bunch of things for us and we’re planning on letting him do a lot of things he does best.”

Godwin, who is entering his second season since recovering from a torn ACL, is looking forward to the move back inside. He believes that playing in the slot allows him to be more versatile and creative, contributing not only to the passing game but also to the run game.

The timing of this position change couldn’t be better for the Buccaneers, who are coming off a successful season where they won the NFC South and made it to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. With Godwin back in a position to be as effective as possible, the offense, quarterback Baker Mayfield, and the team as a whole are poised for success.

As Godwin approaches free agency at the end of the season, his consistent production of four straight 1,000-yard seasons and five in eight seasons makes him a valuable asset. While the Buccaneers have a history of retaining their homegrown talent, Godwin’s future with the team remains uncertain.

For now, fans can celebrate the return of one of the Buccaneers’ top weapons to a position where he has excelled in the past. Stay tuned to BucsGameday for more updates on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throughout the offseason.
