The final free agent that the Buccaneers should strongly consider is defensive lineman Mike Daniels. Daniels may have finished the 2019 season on IR for the Lions, but he could prove a slightly cheaper, slightly better replacement for Ndamukong Suh.
The Buccaneers desperately need a replacement for Suh as his price tag may have risen too far relative to his current level of play. To remedy this, the Buccaneers could draft Javon Kinlaw to serve as a replacement, or they could find a free agent like Daniels.
Daniels finished the season graded just higher than Suh (70.1 vs. 69.7 according to PFF) and his contract was smaller than Suh’s as well.
This move would not be life changing, but in the grand scheme of things the Buccaneers need to pinch pennies as much as they can. The most likely scenario is that Suh’s asking price will go up while Daniels’ will drop, giving the Buccaneers the perfect opportunity to add Mike Daniels to the team.
Mike Daniels’ game is similar to that of Ndamukong Suh’s, albeit more based against the run rather than rushing the passer. Daniels would be a monstrous pairing with Vita Vea allowing the Buccaneer defensive line to stay as formidable as possible.
