Report: Bucs to Be Major Player for Free Agent OT Brandon Albert
One of the big questions facing the Bucs this off-season is the possible revamping of the offensive line. With a lot of money invested into aging veterans along their offensive line, new faces could be a distinct possibility.
Tony Pauline of draftinsider.net is reporting the Bucs could be one of the big players for one of the top offensive tackles in free agency.
I’m told you can expect the Buccaneers to be big players in the Branden Albert sweepstakes if the Kansas City Chiefs don’t resign sign him as expected. It should come as no surprise but the other NFL team from Florida, the Miami Dolphins, are also expected to be suitors for Albert if he hits the free agent market.
An addition of Albert would likely mean the end of either Donald Penn or Davin Joseph. Penn has two years left on his current contract at around $6.5 million per season. The Bucs could possibly move on from Joseph and shift Penn inside to guard. Of course, both could be gone with more new faces being injected into the line.
After being the biggest spenders in the off-season over the past two off-seasons, it might be looking like the Buccaneers could be big spenders yet again in 2014.
