Bradley McDougald signs with the Seahawks

Safety Bradley McDougald has found a new home with the Seattle Seahawks, signing a one-year, $2 million deal according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. That’s a pretty cheap deal for the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety, who had a lot of trouble finding a taker for his services. Apparently the Bucs weren’t happy with his play, as they chose to re-sign Chris Conte and add J.J. Wilcox instead of retaining his services. McDougald signing elsewhere helps the Bucs in one other way: it leaves the door open for them to get a compensatory pick next season, which will only happen if they lose...

NFL Free Agency Grades: Analysts like the Buccaneers

NFL Free Agency Grades: Analysts like the Buccaneers

Free agency is more or less over right now, and most remaining moves will be minor. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t expected to make any more significant signings, which means they end the free agency period with three significant additions (in addition to a bunch of re-signings): wide receiver DeSean Jackson, defensive tackle Chris Baker and safety J.J. Wilcox. That also means we can look at some grades! Free agency grades are fun if somewhat meaningless — they’re necessarily limited estimates based on overly optimistic views of how players will do and how many will live up to their...

Buccaneers sign J.J. Wilcox to bolster back-end

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed free safety J.J. Wilcox, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys, to a two-year contract. What It Means: The deal is reportedly worth "up to $8.5 million." A third-round pick in 2013, Wilcox only started four games last season but had his best year as a pro. Bringing in Wilcox likely means Tampa Bay is moving on from free agent Bradley McDougald. The Buccaneers were seventh-best last season in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play. Source: Rotoworld.com

Buccaneers sign safety J.J. Wilcox

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with safety J.J. Wilcox, as first reported by Steve Duemig of 620 WDAE. Wilcox visited the Bucs yesterday and apparently that went well enough. Wilcox is mostly a hard-hitting box safety who works best as a part-time player. He played in just over 50% of the defensive snaps for the Dallas Cowboys last year, after losing his starting job the year before. The Bucs re-signed Chris Conte just before the start of free agency and still have Keith Tandy on the roster, three safeties who probably each work best in a rotation, though Tandy is most...
