Shaq Barrett accepts franchise tag, but with a caveat

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The league’s sack leader in 2019 has long said that he would play under the franchise tag, but as he accepts it, there’s a bit of a caveat.

One of the Buccaneers’ biggest goals this offseason was to keep their defense together, with priority No. 1 being the league’s sack leader in 2019, Shaquil Barrett. Back in March, the team took the necessary step to keep him on board, but electing to franchise tag him rather than sign him to a long-term...

Much more than a watch commercial featuring Tom Brady

On the surface you could say “Born of a Dream: A boy from San Mateo” is a really elaborate watch commercial. You wouldn’t necessarily be wrong, per se. You would however, be missing the re-telling of the story of current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and New England Patriots great, Tom Brady.

If you’re an NFL fan you’ve already heard it. Scrawny kid who struggled to really take the...

What’s the riskiest move of the Bucs’ offseason?

Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images

There’s a lot riding on this one.

Every year, there are a handful of teams that make big moves in the offseason. Whether it’s a big trade or a big free-agent signing, there’s always an element of risk/reward involved.

But when it comes to the Bucs, the risk they took is more about a move they didn’t make as opposed to one they did make.

Bruce Arians and Jason Licht haven’t been shy when it comes to how they feel about this roster. They feel...
