Russell Shepard is beginning to contribute more for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Last week, the former LSU wide receiver hauled in just his second career touchdown catch. On Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, he added another. And it was a beauty.
Watch the play below, as Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston lobs it up for Shepard to grab in the right side of the end zone to give the team a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter:

Shepard has been with Tampa Bay since he was claimed off waivers prior to the 2013 season. He was a special teams captain in 2015. Now, he’s beginning to see more offensive snaps, and he’s making the most of them.
While at LSU, Shepard rushed for 716 yards and 5 touchdowns and totaled 570 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns over his four seasons.
