Former Florida State running back James Wilder Jr. was in Tampa today to visit the Buccaneers. It was somewhat of a test to see if the Bucs can use him for something similar to what his father once was.
Wilder Jr.’s father was an all-time leading rusher for Tampa Bay and he’s hoping that he can follow in his father’s footsteps. After his private workout with the team, he tweeted his excitement.
Bucs workout went great, feel really confident that I helped my stock today with them!!!
