Even with a limited budget, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were not done with just three free agent signings, adding three more over the past week.
After signing hybrid linebacker Deone Bucannon, wide receiver Breshad Perriman, and punter Bradley Pinion in the first wave of free agency, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added three more new faces since.
Adding depth along the offensive line, the Bucs signed Earl Watford, a former player of Arians with the Arizona Cardinals. They then reached an agreement with pass rusher Shaquil Barrett who is ready to get out of the shadows of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb and play a bigger role on defense. Thirdly, Tampa Bay signed former Green Bay Packer safety Kentrell Brice to a one-year deal to add experience and competition to the third level of their defense.
While the team is still struggling for cap space, currently sitting at $2.8 million to spare, the Buccaneers added all three to one year deals at very cost effective deals, the highest paid being Barrett at $4 million. Balling on a budget, the Bucs have still managed to fill holes and add depth to their roster. It will be interesting to see what else general manager Jason Licht is able to do with such a tight budget.
With three more new faces coming to Tampa Bay in 2019, unfamiliarity comes with them; get to know the three newest members of the Buccaneers.
