After signing Washington defensive tackle Chris Baker earlier today, the expectation of Bucs DT Akeem Spence being brought back as well became slim. 

Shortly after the announced signing of Baker, Spence posted this tweet, thanking his teammates, coaches and the organization for his time in Tampa Bay.

Following Spence’s post, it was made public that he will be headed to the Detroit Lions on a three-year, $10.5 million deal.

  1. A classy response from Akeem; I wish him the best. Three year $10.5 Million was a very good offer.

  4. No big loss for Bucs. Average at best. Can’t blame a guy for taking more money for sure.
