Where better to look for some upgrades than some guys who just played in the Super Bowl?

Randy Gregory, DE/49ers

Tampa Bay should focus heavily on upgrading key areas of the offense, especially with how that unit struggled at times and with a new offensive coordinator trying to right some of the wrongs. That doesn't mean the defense should be neglected, as we saw more than a few times how that side of the ball kept the Bucs in games they otherwise might not have had a chance to win.

Calijah Kancey was a revelation as a rookie, living up to the billing and showing the type of promise that suggests he'll be an important piece in the trenches for the foreseeable future. Things aren't so solid on the other side of the line, as Logan Hall is entering a prove-it year after taking much longer than Kancey to settle in.

The success of Kancey puts pressure on Hall to finally step up, which should also have the Bucs looking for depth behind him to cover their bases. Randy Gregory fits the bill, as he's another guy who was highly touted and showed flash but still needs to develop into a true No. 1 guy.

Coming to Tampa Bay could change that.

Gregory played behind Nick Bosa in San Francisco and established himself as a decent depth piece in that defense. He also showed high-end talent while with the Cowboys, which is the guy the Bucs would be betting that Todd Bowles and Kacy Rodgers can help him tap back into. It would put pressure on Hall to elevate his game and would give the Bucs both excellent rotational depth and a potential replacement in case things don't go the way everyone is hoping.
