The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could lose a cornerback
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enjoyed tremendous success in the previous three seasons. The Buccaneer quickly became must-watch television when quarterback Tom Brady came to Tampa Bay and immediately won a Super Bowl. However, Brady’s retirement has caused the team to go into rebuild mode. A top cornerback could be carnage in the Buccaneers’ offseason.
According to Rick Stroud with TampaBay.com, the Buccaneers are not expected to apply the franchise tag to cornerback Jamel Dean. Using the franchise tag on Dean would cost the Buccaneer about $18 million next season.

Dean had a vital role in the Buccaneer Super Bowl run. He has 193 total tackles and seven interceptions during his four years in Tampa Bay.
Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, they’re parting ways with many players as the team has cap space issues. According to Over The Cap, the Buccaneers are over $58 million in the red for next season. The team is in the painful process of needing to tear down the roster from their championship window, and it looks like Dean won’t make that roster.
