The first round selection by the Buccaneers in 2016, the failures of Vernon make them 0-2 in that draft class, striking out of the cornerback and Spence. Over his first three seasons, Hargreaves has often been the target of opposing quarterbacks and has been badly roasted continuously.
He has managed to put up a stat line of only one interception over three years and has started only 24 games. This in not quite what the expectations for Hargreaves was when he was taken 11th overall in 2016, and heading into his fourth season in Tampa Bay, his future has become cloudy.
While he is not in a contract year, and is entering his fourth season with the team, the new regime may give Todd Bowles a year to see what he can do with Hargreaves. It is not a definite decision to move on from him yet, but at the very least, do not expect his fifth year option to be picked up.
If the Bucs decided to trade Hargreaves, they would see about $2.3 million of relief to their cap while eating $2.1 in dead money. If he were to be outright released, which is extremely unlikely, the team would have to absorb the full 4.5 in dead cap while seeing no flexibility to their available cap space.
