Players Released, Traded and/or Signed by Other Teams
The Bucs are doing a good job of keeping their strong defensive front intact in 2020 but they didn't bring back the entire depth chart. Allen left for a two-year deal with the Patriots, taking the reverse Tom Brady path. Nassib reportedly got a three-year contract with the Raiders, perhaps stepping back into a starting role after two good years in Tampa. The Raiders have yet to make the signing official, as is the case with many reported moves around the league under this year's unusual circumstances.
Remaining Unrestricted Free Agents*
(* Liedtke and Orion Stewart both could have become exclusive rights free agents if they had been extended tender offers from the time. Since they did not, they are essentially in the same position as those officially labeled unrestricted free agents, in that they are free to sign with any team.)
Obviously, Winston will be seeking a new NFL home after five years as the Buccaneers starter, since Brady is now assuming that role.
Other key names on that list include Suh, Dotson and Perriman. Suh was a key figure in the Buccaneers' league-leading rush defense and also soaked up double-team blocks to help the team's edge rushers get one-on-one matchups. Dotson has been the Bucs' starting right tackle for most of the last decade. Perriman proved to be a valuable third receiver in 2019 while playing on a one-year deal. The former first-round pick even showed that he could handle being the focal point of a passing attack when he finished the season with three straight 100-yard receiving games after hamstring injuries took out Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.
Barber was part of the team's primary backfield tandem with second-year man Ronald Jones in 2019, but Jones took over as the starter midway through the season. Adams started 11 games at safety and has proved to be a competent option for a position that has been in flux in recent seasons. Smith has been one of the team's better special teams players the last few years. Nunez-Roches played about 25% of the team's defensive snaps last year as part of the interior-line rotation.
