The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Philadelphia safety Sean Jones in free agency, but that's not stopping the Buccaneers from taking a hard look at another one with the third overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. University of Tennessee top-ranked safety Eric Berry is scheduled to visit the Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles, according to an NFL source with knowledge of the situation.Source

: Berry was a player linked to the Buccaneers quite a bit before the team signed Jones in free agency. With Tanard Jackson, Jones, Sabby Piscitelli and Corey Lynch under contract it's hard to see how the Bucs could justify selecting Berry with the third overall pick in the draft, especially if either Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and/or Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh are available. Perhaps Berry is a player the Bucs would consider drafting if they trade down from the third spot, but the team has other -- and perhaps more -- pressing needs, so although Berry has said he wants to be a Buccaneer, it's tough to see that coming to fruition at this point.
