Bucs RB Rachaad White aims to go 'well over' 1,000 rushing yards in 2024

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rashaad White came within 10 yards of breaking the 1,000-yard rushing barrier, something no Bucs player has done since Doug Martin in 2015 (1,402).

Heading into Year 3, White told The Rich Eisen Show on Tuesday that he's ready to smash past that plateau, Kevin Patra of reports.

"Obviously, my goal is to do whatever I can to help the team win," White said. "We've been last, or 25th to last the past five or six years -- I mean, even with the Super Bowl. When it comes to rushing, Tampa Bay has been down bad. My goal, and what I expect me to do, is turn that around, and that's to be top-10 to top-15, top-12, at the minimum. Obviously, there's not been a 1,000-yard rusher here in, like, what, nine years, and obviously, I was 10 yards short of that last year. So I'm a make sure I'm not nearby short of that this year and go well over that 1,000 yards."

White noted that he believes he can be used more in the passing game this season.

"The scrimmage yards are just gonna speak for themselves just 'cause I've always been good catching the ball and running routes out of the backfield," he said. "…I've got a lot of guys with a lot of speed obviously on the outside, and what they do speaks for [itself]. A bunch of them dumpoffs, I'm out in space, and I'm taking myself over a lot of defenders any day of the week."

"The Bucs have been a slept-on team for years, and we done had our trials and tribulations," he said. "…But times have changed, and now it's time for us to take that next step. Like I said, I won eight games my rookie year, won nine my last year. It's time to take that step to get well over that, and not just barely make the playoffs or barely win the division, [but] win the division how I know we should win the division."
