If anyone has capitalized on the hamstring injuries that have kept Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans on the sideline during workouts, it's been Chris Owusu.
According to The Tampa Tribune's Roy Cummings, the Stanford product has impressed head coach Lovie Smith throughout the entire offseason.
"All of the guys are having their moments right now, but Chris Owusu has been pretty good from day one. He’s one that has caught my attention from the first minicamp all the way through," he said.
Though he only has 14 career receptions in 14 games, Owusu could be more heavily involved in 2014. He's clearly excited to be working with new quarterback Josh McCown. He told the Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman that the signal-caller brings a new level of leadership to the offense:
You have a great leader in Josh McCown. He's always in the receiving meeting room, coming in to check on us, making sure we're on the right page. I think that's something we were missing in the past. To see him so excited to come early on days you don't have to come early, to see him be the last one to leave, that's what's helping this offense flow.
Owusu is saying and doing all the right things at the moment, and it should be safe to assume that he'll not only make the roster, but get significant playing time when the season rolls around.
