Labeled as the most pro-ready tight end to come out of the NFL Draft in a long time, Howard landed on a Bucs team that apparently still wants to use last year's breakout tight end Cameron Brate. He'll get snaps, but on a team with so many targets in the passing game, it's better to just pass in year-one.

O.J. Howard signs rookie deal

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed tight end O.J. Howard to a four-year deal on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Howard, the 19th overall pick in April's NFL Draft, signed his rookie deal Monday. He'll compete with Cameron Brate for tight end reps for the duration of the off-season, but barring a setback, is fully expected to beat out the veteran and open the 2017 season as Tampa Bay's top tight end. Howard is the top rookie TE to target for fantasy football's Dynasty league formats.
