Keep up with all of the free agency moves by the Buccaneers here!
Free agency is a wild time in the NFL, especially at the start. The legal tampering period, the rumors, and the many breaking news moments make it so that it’s hard to follow the many happenings for high-profile teams like the Buccaneers.
Instead of trying to keep up with every Tweet and post individually to see what the Bucs are doing to keep the roster in contention for the Super Bowl, we will keep all pertinent news here to make life easier and update as any news breaks.
Buccaneers free agents that are staying
Chris Godwin WR (Franchise tag) 1 year, $19.2 million
The Buccaneers used the franchise tag to keep their star receiver in town. What a decision this turned out to be with the news that Tom Brady is coming back!
While we aren’t happy that the Bucs couldn’t come to terms with Godwin on a long-term deal before the deadline to use the tag, having him locked up will give both sides plenty of time to get a deal in place to lessen the cap hit for down the road.
Aaron Stinnie G 1 year, $1.4 million
The Bucs chose to keep a familiar face at home to stem the bleeding from one of several likely departures. Could potentially replace Alex Cappa if needed.
Tom Brady QB
Does it really count? Not really, but he makes the list either way. Brady returning from retirement has been and will be the biggest offseason move for the Buccaneers this year.
Ryan Jensen C 3 years, $39 million
The Buccaneers smartly choose to pay Ryan Jensen as a means of keeping Tom Brady protected.
Carlton Davis CB 3 years, $45 million
This is huge. The Buccaneers keep their next most important free agent.
Buccaneers players that are departing
Retirement isn’t leaving in free agency, but the Bucs will need to do everything in their power to find a replacement for one of their best linemen.
Alex Cappa G to the Bengals 4 years $40 million
The Bucs will miss Cappa, but this always seemed like the most likely departure.
Jordan Whitehead to the Jets 2 years $14.5 million
This one is going to sting.
Outside players that join the Buccaneers
Russell Gage WR 3 years $30 million
The Buccaneers find a quality receiving option to pair with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.
