Up to Date Recap of Bucs FA Transactions

2 min read

Most Bucs fans know that the Bucs front office didn’t have much salary cap room heading into this offseason, so the chances of the Bucs making a big splash in free agency was very slim.


Here’s a recap of the Buccaneers transactions so far this offseason:


In February:

– Released DE Vinny Curry.

Signed European league kicker Phillip Andersen.

– Signed former Arizona Cardinals/Texans’ running back Andre Ellington.


In March:

– Re-signed left tackle Donovan Smith to a three-year contract.

– Re-signed linebacker Devante Bond to a one year contract.

– Exercised their 2019 option on Demar Dotson.

– Tendered exclusive rights player safety Isaiah Johnson.

– Tendered exclusive rights player offensive lineman Mike Liedtke.

– Former Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander became a free agent and agreed to a deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

– Former Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries became a free agent and agreed to a deal with the Tennessee Titans.

– The Buccaneers traded wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and a 2020 seventh-round draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round draft pick.

– Re-signed quarterback Ryan Griffin to a two-year contract.

– Released punter Bryan Anger.

– Re-signed kicker Cairo Santos to a one year contract.

– Re-signed running back Peyton Barber to a one year contract.

The Bucs released defensive tackle, Mitch Unrein after he failed his physical. He never played a down for Tampa Bay after suffering from a concussion throughout the entire 2018-2019 season.

– Re-signed linebacker Kevin Minter to a one year contract.

– Signed former San Francisco 49ers punter and unrestricted free agent Bradley Pinion to a four-year contract.

Signed journeyman safety Deone Bucannon. Signing the former Arians’ first-round selection of the 2014 NFL was a no-brainer as the Bucs had a hole to fill.

Signed unrestricted free agent, former Baltimore Ravens 2015 first round pick, former Washington Redskins, and former Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver Breshad Perriman to a one year contract.

Stay tuned as more moves surface in the coming weeks.
