NFL recognizes Barrett’s week 2 performance



Buccaneers outside linebacker Shaq Barrett has been named NFC defensive players of the week. His three sack performance against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football was something not seen by a Buccaneer in quite some time.

Barrett signed a one year deal worth $4 million with the Buccaneers this offseason. The deal has incentives that could raise that number to $5 million.

To some, a three sack performance is just that. To the Buccaneers faithful it’s a sign of a defense heading in the right direction.
