2024 NFL Offseason: Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Last Year: 9-8)



Season Summary:
The Buccaneers were projected as a bottom-five team entering the 2023 season. They were able to win nine games, though many of their victories were very fluky. It’s highly unlikely that Tampa Bay has the same success next year unless it makes lots of upgrades.






Offseason Moves:
  • Lions acquire CB Carlton Davis, 2024 6th-round pick, 2025 6th-round pick from Buccaneers for 2024 3rd-round pick
  • Buccaneers announce retirement of Ryan Jensen






    Team Needs:
    1. Quarterback: Baker Mayfield is an impending free agent. The Buccaneers will probably work to retain him, but a long-term option at quarterback is needed as well. Re-signed Baker Mayfield

    2. Two Cornerbacks: Tampa Bay’s biggest problem last year was defending the pass. Cornerback was a huge issue that must be addressed with multiple upgrades. Signed Bryce Hall and Tavierre Thomas

    3. Two Safeties: Make it one safety if Antoine Winfield is re-signed. Winfield was tremendous, but the Buccaneers had another liability in the secondary at their other safety spot. Re-signed Antoine Winfield

    4. Two Interior Offensive Linemen: The Buccaneers struggled to protect Mayfield in key situations. They’ll need to get better at guard and center.

    5. Wide Receiver: Mike Evans is due to hit free agency. If he leaves, there will obviously be a huge hole at the position. Re-signed Mike Evans

    6. Two Linebackers: Speaking of free agents, Lavonte David and Devin White will see their contracts expire this March. They’ll need to be retained or replaced.

    7. Edge Rusher: Shaq Barrett will turn 32 during the 2024 season, so some youth on the edge is needed.

    8. Running Back: Rachaad White is an excellent pass-catching back, but he’s not the best runner. Some competition could be added here.

    9. Kicker: Chase McLaughlin is another free agent-to-be. Re-signed Chase McLaughlin
