Denver Broncos: 8 free agent linebacker options in 2021
The Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers could soon experience a fairly significant exodus of players from their roster.
The Bucs sold out to win Super Bowl 54 and who could blame them?
With that being said, the Buccaneers are not in a poor salary cap situation like the Denver Broncos were following their victory in Super Bowl 50. Although they are going to have to convince players to potentially re-sign at team-friendly rates, they have a really strong bargaining chip — running it back.
If the Buccaneers can return the majority of their core, they have a really good chance of at least getting to the Super Bowl again in the 2021 season now that the offense has had a year to work together and the defense is really clicking under Todd Bowles.
For that reason, it’s hard to imagine Lavonte David leaving such a sweet gig, especially to come to a team like the Broncos which won just five games in 2020.
David has reached the pinnacle in Tampa Bay where he really paid his dues. If he has a legitimate shot of winning back-to-back titles with the Bucs, why would he compromise that for what would likely amount to a marginal difference in free agent dollars?
Although you have to put him on the list and make a call, it doesn’t seem likely that any team is going to get David away from the Bucs in the 2021 offseason.
