The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Friday that they’ve re-signed defensive tackle Rakeem Nunez-Roches to a one-year deal worth $805,000, which is the league minimum salary. The 6-foot-2, 306-pounder is slated to provide depth at the three-technique defensive tackle position behind Gerald McCoy, who is expected to be back for his 10th season in Tampa Bay in 2019.

Nunez-Roches was added to Tampa’s roster for depth on the interior defensive line last season and registered two tackles in three games active with the Bucs. Prior to signing with Tampa, Nunez-Roches was a sixth-round pick to Kansas City in the 2015 draft, racking up 51 total tackles, five tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks over his three seasons with the Chiefs.

  1. Good signing. Now the Bucs can SHIT-CAN Geraldini93. Nunez-Roches was better and isn’t 31.

  2. Down vote it all you want. Fact is the Bucs have $3m in cap space but still have to sign rookies $9m and add players after June 1 cuts hit.

    They won’t be cutting the guys they just signed to make room for rookies.

    GMC $13m, JPP $14m, David $10m. Someone on that list will be cut, for sure.

  3. Good depth signing. I do not know much about him but two coaching staffs have liked him up to this point to be given a chance.

  4. Bucs have the 2nd highest paid defensive line in the entire NFL. They are spending over $48m. This info doesn’t include Nunez-Roches new salary, which will obviously add to the cost. It is the most expensive unit on the team. The Bucs have no cap space after signing Watford and Nunez-Roches. Free agency is finished until the Bucs cut more players. No RB, no 3rd QB, no CB, no S. That’s it.
