Buccaneers Free Agent Outlook Part I
By James Yarcho
As free agency approaches, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have plenty of decisions to make regarding their own players about to hit the market.
Free agency brings with it a sense of hope and improvement for every fan base. The thought of another team’s star coming in to help your favorite squad is certainly intriguing. However, championship teams are made by teams drafting, developing, and retaining their own talent – not a slew of outside guys coming in to save the day.
Now, that’s not to say outsiders don’t help out in key roles. We saw that this season from Robert Ayers, Brent Grimes, and Bryan Anger. We’ve seen it in the recent past with Vincent Jackson and Luke Stocker. Now the Bucs are in full evaluation mode for both the players ready to hit the market as well as their own who they don’t want to see get that far.
We’re going to take a look at the Bucs’ pending free agents and which ones are likely to stay as well as which ones are likely to go.
