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.

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.

Glad to see him back.

I’m hearing about multiple players wanting to play for the bucs with Brady. Do you know who these players might be??

Like having this guy on the roster again especially at his young age. Saw a star on PFF that he played 293 snaps last year without one missed tackle. Pretty darn good even though most of them were probably pass plays. He’s solid depth on the interior and it was much needed. Ow I’m waiting to see what happens with Sue

Hey, Todd Gurley is our there now. Sure could be a nice player to go with Rojo.

isn’t he already slowing down from injury? Think there are better, fresher legs in the draft. His contract would be a big pill to swallow. Also, if he’s so good, why would a competitive team let him go?

He’s out there for a reason. Too many $, too few yards.
Go Rookie or poke around Gordon and see if you can restructure his overpaid butt.

Clay Matthews is out there as well, could be a cheap veteran presence for Devin White to also learn from along with Lavonte David. Nasty front 7

Easily could afford Gurley for a one year deal and still draft a running back. Gurley is still an effective receiver and we know Brady loves throwing passes off to his running backs. It’s not unrelealstic that the bucs stock up at the position now.

Our cap is very squeezed right now. Less and less likely for Suh IMO. Too bad.

Suh still adds value to this team. Will be a disappointment if Bucs let him walk.

You people who keep saying our cap is too tight are driving me crazy. It’s NOT that tight. We just signed two of the top 10 free agents out there (Barrett and Brady) plus JOP. Did we spend money? Yes. But we STILL have money to spend and we still have contracts that can be reworked to fit in a veteran or two on the cheap 1 year deals just like we did last year. People WANT to come play here and they will take the discount to do so. We still got money for Suh, our draft picks and… Read more »

Love Roches.

Just need to add two more DT bodies to the fold and good to go. Suh coming back would bey really, really nice. Then find a replacement for B. Allen.

Remember in the off season only the top 51 contracts count. So the Bucs have a lot more wiggle room than most believe.

I would estimate the Bucs are about $17 mil with Brady and Roches.

I am happy we have re-signed Nacho.

We can afford Suh.

Two questions. Is there a worthwhile safety still in play? If so, could we afford him?

I just checked the roster at buccaneers.com.

Vea, Ledbetter, O’Connor and Gholston are listed. We now know Nunez-Roches has re-signed. Under UFA Beau Allen’s name is gone but Suh’s remains. I think will re-sign Suh.

It’s pretty surprising that people think Gurley would be a bad move. Remember it was McVay who decided to scale back TG’s touches last year. They felt like they were a SB team and wanted him fresh for the playoffs. He’s maintained the entire time he’s fully healthy and ready to carry the rock. If they can get him for a cheap prove it deal, omg I’d be all over that. He’s the elite receiving back Brady needs, and he just so happens to be a complete back and not just a receiving back. So please come here TG. I… Read more »

Edelman and AB are next folks! Might as well trade Evans now.

Heard rumors that Edelman could be had for a 3rd round pick. That’s the only way I’d do it. Wouldn’t do it for a 1st or 2nd. And as far as AB, no thanks. He’s a cancer. Let someone else have him. We have the next AB in Godwin, except he comes with zero baggage

Beau Allen has the desired Patriots’ quality.
