Who are some players the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could look at in free agency this offseason?

Teams always want to improve in the off-season, and usually, all the focus is on the draft. However, it is necessary to add some veteran presence through free agency. In a few weeks, free agency will open and some of the top players in the league will be looking for a new home.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished the season 7-9, but they showed improvements down the stretch. With an already young team, the Bucs will be looking to add some veteran talent at some key positions. The Bucs have needs on the offensive line and almost everywhere on the defense. The team knows they won’t be able to address all of that in the draft, so expect them to make a few moves in free agency.

Head coach Bruce Arians and general manager Jason Licht have been working together for a long time, and they’re on the same page on most of their decisions, making player acquisition easier. As the team is getting more familiar with each other and Arians’ system, adding veteran players who know their way around an NFL playbook will be crucial.

Heading into this offseason, everyone knew about the need at offensive line and defensive secondary. However, now that there has been more speculation and analysis, it is known that there is a clear need at quarterback, as well as the defensive line.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans everywhere are hoping for a good offseason that could propel the team to playoff contention. It’s been a while since Bucs fans could take those words to heart, but with a good coaching staff, it’s finally possible. These are five free-agent targets the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be looking at.
