When asked about Dare Ogunbowale's chance of being the lead back, beat reporter Rick Stroud answered, "Right now I think he’s winning the job as their third down back. Time will tell if he moves higher than that but he’s done a good job as a pass protector and route runn(er) and (has) run the ball inside and near the goal line well."
The Buccaneer's running back situation isn't good, but Dare Ogunbowale's possible job as a third-down back could be the best job in Bruce Arian's offense, especially if Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones continue to jockey for lead-back duties. While coaching the Cardinals from 2013 to 2017, they ranked 10th in running back targets. So there should be opportunity for Ogunbowale even if he doesn't earn more work, but there is room for him to do so.
