Everyone and their grandmother knows that the Buccaneers’ secondary is a complete mess. With Brent Grimes possibly moving on from Tampa, the defensive backfield is a complete disaster. Therefore, the front office should undoubtedly make bolstering the secondary a priority this offseason. Free Agency starts in 31 days, and a couple candidates for the Bucs to keep an eye on are Jacksonville’s Nickel and Outside Cornerback Aaron Colvin.
The 26-year-old was used by Jacksonville mainly as a nickel corner last year because of stud cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye ahead of him on the depth chart. He played 70% of snaps over the whole season and did a great job in man coverage as well as in zone coverage. Moreover, he is very physical for a cornerback and plays well against the run. He would certainly improve Tampa Bay’s defensive backfield drastically.
The Jaguars may still re-sign Colvin. Yet, that is unlikely, considering they are already paying Bouye a fortune, and will most likely keep Jalen Ramsey, which will cost Jacksonville a fortune after next season. Consequently, Colvin becoming a free agent this year is very likely. Tampa Bay should highly consider signing this young, solid Cornerback, that would be the first step in the right direction to a successful offseason.
