As the NFL's legal tampering period gets underway Monday, there have been no signs of a return to the Bucs for Kwon Alexander or Adam Humphries. Sources told me Humphries was asking for $8 million per year, Alexander $12 million (or at least $10M like top players at his position)

It is expected that Tampa Bay will lose Humphries in free agency willing to offer him around a market value of $10.4 million per season. They could attempt to match any offer from another team, but expects to lose him at this point.
The Bucs do seem more optimistic about being able to retain the MIKE linebacker coming off an ACL injury early last season. Which may hurt his market value with other teams. He is reportedly seeking a deal around $12 million per season. The Bucs previously were rumored to of offered Alexander a deal that averaged $10 million per season.
Both Alexander and Humphries can begin fielding offers at 12:00PM EST on March 11th until the start of free agency on March 13th.
