The good news for Tampa Bay is Bucannon was willing to sign a very favorable deal at only $2.5 million, and while it seems unlikely the Buccaneers would trade a player who hasn’t even played a single game yet, this has happened before in the NFL.
While Bucannon was most likely hoping to make a major impact on Tampa Bay’s defense as a starter, this may not happen after the team recently used a first-round pick of their own on Devin White back in April.
Clearly, the Buccaneers saw something special enough in White to use such a high draft pick on the linebacker since there were a few other areas they could have addressed as well, and while Bucannon could still be used for depth, this also makes him tradable.
Dante Fowler Jr. is the perfect example of how a team like the Rams is never afraid to give up on a former first-round pick who hasn’t exactly lived up to the hype, and while Bucannon wouldn’t be considered a starter on the Rams, he could still help their defense.
