The Bucs retained some of the depth along their interior defensive line by re-signing defensive lineman Rakeem “Nacho” Nunez-Roches to a one-year deal worth up to $2.25 million with $1 million guaranteed, per NFL Insider Adam Caplan.
#Buccaneers and DT Rakeem Nunzez-Roches agreed to 1-year deal for up to $2.25m ($1m gtd), source said.
Could see more time with Beau Allen signing with Pats.
The 26-year old Nunez-Roches has played his last two seasons for the Bucs, signing with Tampa Bay in October of 2018 after getting released by the Chiefs and then re-signing with the Bucs again in 2019.
Nunez-Roches has been apart of the rotation on the defensive line since arriving in Tampa Bay and is known for playing with a high motor on the field and being a good locker room presence. Nunez-Roches played his college football at the University of Southern Mississippi and was drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs.
In two years with the Bucs, Nunez-Roches has had 11 tackles with one tackle for a loss in 19 games. He will continue to be in the rotation on the defensive line behind Vita Vea.
