TAMPA, Fla. Ready set start signing.
Free agency in the NFL begins at 4 p.m. Tuesday, and it gives the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a critical chance to begin shaping their roster for coach Greg Schianos second season. Theyre far from short on resources: The Bucs enter the period with 30.1 million in cap space, among the leagues highest totals, which means they can choose to be aggressive to boost areas of need such as a loose pass rush and a searching secondary.
Tampa Bay showed an ability to attack this time of year last spring. The Bucs signed guard Carl Nicks, cornerback Eric Wright and wide receiver Vincent Jackson to contracts worth a combined 141.05 million. Nicks and Jackson are considered to have high ceilings within the franchise, whereas Wright encountered, well, more than a few issues in his short time in red and pewter.
Where should the money go this year? Who could be targets? Will the Bucs make a splash or have buyers remorse later?
