The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are apparently not done shopping in free agency.

Denver Broncos free agent guard Cooper Carlisle likely will visit the Bucs at One Buccaneer Place this week, according to Carlisle’s agent, Frank Murtha. The visit could take place as early as Tuesday.

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound Carlisle has started 38 of the 95 games he’s played in since 2000. He started all 16 regular season games at right guard in the 2005 and 2006 seasons, respectively.

Carlisle, 29, is viewed as a player who could help replace former Bucs guard/center Sean Mahan, who signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this offseason.

According to Murtha, the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders have also expressed interest in signing Carlisle.
