Donteea Dye of Heidelberg gets the start in Atlanta today at Wide Receiver. He made a helluva catch last week, the first catch of his career for Jameis Winston’s ninth career TD pass. Dye is one of those UDFA pick-ups that has a real chance to take a role and run with it today with Vincent Jackson out, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins on the shelf still.
This was a role figured to be filled by Kenny Bell who the Buccaneers actually spent a draft pick on. Somehow, Dye seems more interesting to me than that of Bell or Louis Murphy. I have a feeling on this guy, and I don’t know why. I feel like this can go one of two ways however.
Dye will either run good routes and get open and somehow make an impact on the stat sheet today, or he’ll make one or zero catches and the opportunity will squander. I hope Dye; a player from a nearby small college makes a splash enough to stick on the Buccaneers roster long-term.
