Tom Brady: Scotty Miller’s earned a big role

Buccaneers wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin each posted more than 1,100 receiving yards during the 2019 season and plenty of people look forward to seeing what they’ll do with Tom Brady in 2020.

Those people may need to make some room for another wideout. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Scotty Miller was Brady’s favorite target and that he finished the day with four catches for 84 yards.

After the workout, Brady said that Miller has earned his trust over a short period of time.

“He’s another great, consistent, dependable, trustworthy player,” Brady said. “Whatever we talk about, he takes it to the next practice and his play is showing everybody that he’s earned a big role. You can trust where he’s going to be, he makes the plays when they come his way. He’s really been fun to work with and fun to see grow from the minute I got here.”

Miller was a sixth-round pick last year and caught 13 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown. The on-field play and off-field comments make it sound like a good idea to bet the over for this year’s numbers.

  1. Scotty is about to have a big year. Dude is blazing fast, and if he’s like Welker or a similar player, Brady is going to love him. Great compliment to Evans, Godwin, and the rest of the established guys. Brady can go deep, intermediate, short, this offense is gonna be awesome.

  2. Disgusting watching Brady do this after he thumbed his nose at his teammates the last 2 seasons, skipping OTAs.

    He’d probably be whining about the emerging Gunner Olezewski in NE right now, who has similar skills as Miller.

    Puke-inducing comments from Brady.

    Wait until Miller drops a ball. It will be a hoot!

    He has no run game or O Line. NEs D would shut their offense down pretty easily, for example.

    Jon Jones on Miller, JC Jackons on Evans with help. Both eliminated.

    Gilmore on Godwin. Eliminated.

    Throw Adrian Phillps on Howard or Brate and that’s it.

    Brady is pretty bad against a good or great D, without a run game as has been proven, whether he really didn’t have a good one in certain years or when he did, and checked out into passes to throw upwards of 50 times in games, especially from 2007-2012.

    He’ll take the cheese if you set the trap. His ego demands it.

    He did it last year trying to chase stats as a free agent.

    If they lose in 2 weeks vs NOs don’t expect him to check the ego at the door.

    Umm, speed is wildly overrated for wrs (ask moron al davis, lmao), but anyway, Damiere Byrd ran a 4.28.

    Have a nice day.

  5. Brady wants a new Edelman, may have just found him. Evans and Goodwin are his down the field guys. This could be intresting.

    Man you got it all figured out. Too bad they couldn’t “easily” shut down the Dolphins at the end of the season and lost their #1 seed. But I’m sure this Bucs offense will be easy pickins for them. /s

    Oh and you left out Gronk LOL, I guess Gronk is gonna have to take over then since Phillips is gonna lock down Howard and Brate haha.
