NFL Network commentator Nate Burleson gave high praise to Bucs receiver Chris Godwin on Good Morning Football Thursday, crediting him for “toe-drag swag” on a catch he made in practice over Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl cornerback Xavien Howard.

Burleson, the former NFL receiver, also asked Godwin about the meaning behind his frequent Twitter use of #12SZN — “12 Season.”

“I think it’s very significant to me, kind of a mindset for me, kind of like my time is now,” Godwin said on the show. “(It’s) not to wait for anybody to give me mine, but to go out and work for it. Every time I put #12SZN that’s more focus on me and I’m going to work to get mine.”

As for the season, Godwin said he hopes to surpass 1,000 yards while helping the team enjoy more success. The Bucs went 5-11 in 2019 and replaced Coach Dirk Koetter with Bruce Arians in January.

“I’m excited about what this season can bring for myself. I’m excited about what the season can bring for the team,” Godwin said. “So, I’m just trying to get that point, doing what can really help our team. I’m coming in every day and just trying to work and be the best receiver I can be. I know I have a lot of room to grow but I think that’s the exciting thing that what I’ve done so far, I can still grow higher.”
