The hopes are high for Buccaneer receiver Julio Jones. But not so high that he landed in the starting lineup.
The first officially unofficial regular-season depth chart is out for the Buccaneers. Jones is not among the team’s starters.
The Bucs list three starting receivers: Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and free-agent arrival Russell Gage.
Elsewhere on offense, Rachaad White is the No. 2 tailback behind Leonard Fournette. White was a third-round pick in the 2022 draft from Arizona State. Veteran Gio Bernard is No. 4, behind Ke’Shawn Vaughn.
White also is listed as the No. 1 kick returner. The primary punt returner is receiver Jaelon Darden.
