Derek Cox might not have to wait long to find work. The free-agent cornerback isn't expected to rejoin the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he might remain in Florida, writes Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.
Cox isn't going to be mistaken for Darrelle Revis, but he would address an immediate need for the Buccaneers after the team finished with the league's worst pass defense last season. The Bucs have plenty of salary cap room and -- amid reports Sean Smith is on their radar -- we wouldn't be surprised to see the Bucs sign multiple defensive backs. There is a gaping void in the secondary.
Cox alone isn't going to solve those issues, but in a deep group of free-agent corners, he represents an upgrade.
There have been rumors of Cox attracting interest from the Washington Redskins, yet the Buccaneers with its warm weather climate might be more attractive to Cox.
