The Buccaneers are the talk of the NFL, and after watching their success during 2020, other teams may give extra consideration to former Tampa players.
As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sit in a league of their own after winning the Super Bowl, the rest of the league is left to wonder how this franchise was able to pull itself out of the pits of mediocrity after almost two decades.
There isn’t one singular answer that points towards this dramatic turnaround, but free agency played a massive role in building this team into one that will now compete for the Super Bowl for the foreseeable future.
Free agency is a special art. The skill comes from knowing when to sign players and when to let others walk, even if it isn’t received well in the moment. The Bucs aren’t new to these less than favorable moves, but in the end, no one can argue with the recent results.
Tampa Bay is in a great position moving forward, even if some of their former vital players are still looking for work. There is a reason why the following players aren’t on the team any longer, and their search for work could carry through training camp or even longer.
