“I don’t really worry about expectations. Football is football. I’ve been playing the same game for 25 years. I mean, for the first time in my life, I really have a quarterback. So that’s eye-opening for me.”

“And not a lot of pressure is gonna come on me. As far as game-planning and changing things, it’s great for me. I’m happy to be back there with one of the greatest, well, the greatest that’s played this game, and I get to learn from him too. My first two days here, I was sitting here talking to him about other defenses, what he expects, what I expect from him, you know our expectations because they’re high right now. But we have to start with each other on the team to understand each other and get a better communication before anything,” Fournette said via NFL Network.

The Buccaneers start their 2020 season with a mouth-watering tie against Drew Brees-led New Orleans Saints. Coach Bruce Arians will be eager to get off to a flying start with TB12 on his roster this year. Can the Bucs shatter all expectations and make the Super Bowl? Time will tell.
