There are many different players throughout the NFL that would be perfect fits for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers whether they are free agents or trade targets.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not a perfect team and thus could benefit from the addition of several different players from across the NFL.

While some of these options may not be available now, they could become more feasible as time goes on either when they become free agents or if the Buccaneers were willing to make a trade.

While some of these players may be long shots, crazier things have happened in the past and all of these acquisitions are at least somewhat viable.

1. Jamal Adams, Safety, NYJ

Jamal Adams may be the most likely player on this list to become a Buccaneer. While he may seem tied to the Jets for now, the relationship may sour and Adams could walk when free agency hits down the road or demand a trade before that.

The situation in New York has been seemingly deteriorating since the trade deadline hit. Adams made it clear that he wanted to remain a Jet but then found out that the Jets were not completely shutting down trade offers.

This was seen as a slight towards Adams who took this personally.

While Jamal Adams does have a good situation in New York and is a part of a good defense, the situation would likely improve on both sides of the ball in Tampa Bay in 2020 or further down the road.

Jamal Adams and Todd Bowles would be a great fit and Adams would have a large role on an up and coming defense that is filled with young talent.

If Adams did demand a trade, the Buccaneers could probably bring him in for a first-round pick along with another higher round pick. This all depends on Adams’ opinions on continuing to play for the Jets and New York could be incentivized to sell low if they are concerned about Adams holding out.
