Report: Buccaneers use franchise tag on Barrett

  Report: Buccaneers use franchise tag on Barrett The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed their franchise tag on pass-rusher Shaquil Barrett, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Barrett signed a one-year, $4-million contract with the Bucs in 2019 and turned it into 19.5 sacks in a career season. Tampa Bay will keep Barrett for another season at a projected salary of $15.8 million, according to Spotrac. Barrett and starting quarterback Jameis Winston were the Buccaneers' two biggest pending free agents. By using their franchise tag on the former, the expectation is that Winston will enter the legal tampering period at noon Monday ahead of free agency, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians firmly shut the door on potentially signing Antonio Brown in an interview Thursday.

"Yeah, it's not gonna happen. It's not gonna happen, there's no room," Arians told Tiki and Tierney of CBS Sports. "It's not a fit here."

The head coach, who previously coached Brown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, even said he wouldn't want the wideout on the veteran's minimum.

"No. I just know him and it's not a fit in our locker room," said Arians.

It was reported last week that Tampa Bay was unlikely to sign Brown despite his connection to Tom Brady.

Tom Brady has one thing left to prove

  Tom Brady has one thing left to prove What else does Tom Brady have to achieve, as he enters his age-43 season with the (come on LOL this can't be real get out of here) Tampa Bay Buccaneers? How about the chance to show what he can do without Bill Belichick. The Brady-Belichick partnership, it's safe to say, was the greatest player-coach pairing in sports history. But it couldn't last forever. It's nice to imagine a happier ending was possible - Brady coming back on one last team-friendly contract to guide the Patriots to one more title - but, in hindsight, it was never going to work out that way. Consider who we're talking about here.

Teams that chased the star quarterback reportedly believed he wanted a reunion with the receiver, who played one game for the New England Patriots last season before being released.

On Wednesday, Brown appeared to lobby for a spot with the Bucs. Asked on Instagram if he would sign with the NFC South team, the receiver responded, "expeditiously."

Tampa Bay has the Pro Bowl wideout duo of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin atop its depth chart.

Brown's playing status is still being reviewed by the NFL following separate allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct.
