Another former Denver Bronco and recently released, is former Pro Bowl middle linebacker Brandon Marshall. While Marshall would cost a little more than the others on this list, his services could still be obtained for around $5 million in 2019, so if the Bucs were able and willing to clear cap space, then adding him would be on the table.
After Alexander left for the San Francisco 49ers, the Buccaneers signed versatile hybrid linebacker Deone Bucannon, but that should not deter them from adding a traditional backer as well. Bucannon will be more of a freelancing backer patrolling the field in the new age linebacker/safety hybrid role.
Marshall has started 63 games in Denver after being selected in the fifth round by the Jacksonville Jaguars and playing only one season there before being cut. He has recorded two interceptions, forced five fumbles, tallied 6.5 sacks, and has had three seasons of over 100 tackles.
If the Buccaneers have the option to draft Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen, they will take them in a heartbeat over linebacker Devin White, who many expect to be the next middle linebacker in 2019. However, signing Marshall to a cheap deal could give Tampa Bay added flexibility in their draft plans.
