Buccaneers video: O.J. Howard catches foul ball barehanded in baseball playoff game

O.J. Howard, Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard admitted he is surprised by the lack of targets he has received thus far in the 2019 NFL season. Fortunately, that does not appear to be the case when it comes to baseball.

Howard made quite the appearance at the Tampa Bay Rays’ AL Division Series matchup versus the Houston Astros by catching a foul ball barehanded, via Trevor Sikkema of the Pewter Report.

There is no question that it was an impressive grab from Howard. It is safe to say that he was pumped about being able to make a play while his fellow Tampa Bay peers forced a Game 5 against the heavily-favored Astros.

Although Howard was happy to see the ball come his way on the baseball diamond, the gridiron has been a different story this season. The Buccaneers’ former first-round pick has hauled in a mere 11 receptions for 141 yards through the first five games of the year.

He will be looking to get back on track against the Carolina Panthers in Week 6.
