With two of the biggest free agency names in the NFL on their team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to need to choose who to keep.
While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are located about an hour and a half southwest of Orlando, they turned the 2020 season into a story that even Walt Disney would be proud of. The Bucs are coming off one of their most magical seasons as a franchise. They signed Tom Brady, made the playoffs for the first time in over a decade, and capped it off with a Super Bowl victory in their home stadium – the first time this has ever been done.
Almost immediately after their Super Bowl victory, nearly all of the Bucs’ coaches and players were promising another one. The players promised that they would return, Mike Evans even going as far to say that they could take some of his money in order to keep other players.
This is all very encouraging but it should be noted that this is a normal response after winning the Super Bowl. There have been very few players who have said they were going to leave team, but this is a business as well and the money talks.
As of right now, the Buccaneers have several big names whose contracts have expired. Some of those names include Shaquil Barrett, Chris Godwin, Ndamukong Suh, Antonio Brown, Leonard Fournette, and Lavonte David, among others. This article will specifically cover Barrett and Godwin.
