Tryon-Shoyinka ‘needs tender loving care’

September 14, 2022

Second-year rusher Joe Tryon-Shoyinka is very hungry and very talented – and very raw.

Joe sees it on film. Tryon-Shoyinka has a huge ceiling but his game needs a lot of tweaking. Still, he’s productive and he should grow quickly with a more defined role this season.

Bucs co-defensive coordinator Larry Foote spoke about Tyron-Shoyinka on the Buccaneers radio network yesterday and kind of described him as a draft.

“He didn’t play ball much in college, so he’s still learning how to play in that position,” Foote said.

“Smart and extremely athletic,” is how Foote described Tryon-Shoyinka, and he said he benefits from being in a fantastic learning incubator with enthusiastic teachers in Shaq Barrett, Carl Nassib and the new linebackers coach. Bucs outsiders, Bob Sanders.

“He’s in a good position to grow and learn, and he just needs a little attention – loving care.”

Tryon-Shoyinka played about 70% of the snaps against Dallas and chased quarterback Dak Prescott out of the pocket on the interception of Antoine Winfield, Jr. Tryon-Shoyinka also blasted a first-quarter run that resulted in a loss of seven meters.

The great thing is the Bucs are so talented they don’t need Tryon-Shoyinka to have a monster season. He just has to keep improving steadily.
