Tampa Bay Buccaneers Are Considered Front Runners For Jeff Demps

The Tampa Buccaneers have said that they are interested in former Florida Gator and Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps, and the lastest news is that the Bucs are now considered to be the favorite in landing his services. Demps's agent has said that a decision could come as early as Monday.

If Demps does sign with the Bucs, the decision as to where he would play comes into view. While at Florida, Demps was an all-around player that would see time at running back, wide receiver and also return kicks. The Bucs would be smart to move Demps all over the field and have him run the ball on sweeps or quick passing routes, while letting his speed and athleticism do the rest and make a big play.

To make the most impact with Demps's speed, the team could also place him on special teams to return punts or kicks. In his last season at Florida, he averaged 25 yards per return. The Bucs do have concerns about ball security on returns, so Demps could fit right in at that position.
