The Buccaneers have applied the franchise tag to OLB Shaq Barrett. Contract talks have reportedly gone positively this offseason, so Barrett always appeared headed back to the team that helped him break out in 2019. Barrett blew up for 19.5 sacks last season after totaling 14 over his previous 5 campaigns. Barrett turned 27 in mid-November.
Buccaneers OLB Shaq Barrett is active for today's game against the Panthers. He arrived questionable with an oblique issue but is available for your IDP lineups. S Mike Edwards (hamstring) is also active despite a "questionable" tag.
