Today at 4 PM marks the start of free agency, the point where the NFL off-season switches from speculative to active as teams begin addressing their needs. The Bucs have no shortage of needs, but also no shortage of cap space, which should make for an interesting couple of weeks.
Over the past months a lot has been made about where the Buccaneers would be spenders this season or if they would wait until the mandatory salary cap floor kicks in during next off-season. The fan-base seems to be even split on the topic, with half buying into the lip-service of the owners during the coaching search while the other half is apprehensive given the team’s track record in the past.
Today at 4, the Bucs will have a chance to put their money where their mouth is.
We’ll have all hands on deck all day long and well into tomorrow as we get into the start of free agency. Josh has been working double-duty while we ease a few new writers in and I travel for work, but today we will be full-staffed and churning out articles and a heck of a clip.
So stay tuned and we’ll be serving up news, rumors and commentary all day long.
