Barrett/Bucs: Match made in heaven


The Buccaneers defense has benefited greatly from the addition of Shaq Barrett (OLB) this offseason. Shaq Barrett has benefited greatly from joining the Buccaneers this offseason. Seems like a match made in heaven right?

Head coach Bruce Arians seems to think so. When asked about Barrett’s status as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

“He ain’t going anywhere”

Shaq Barrett was asked about free agency and his desire to stay in Tampa Bay.

“I think I will be here for sure… I like it here. They like me here.”

So what’s the hold up?

Barrett has been a force for the Buccaneers! With two games left in the season he has tied Warren Sapp’s team record with 16.5 sacks. General manager Jason Licht needs to do whatever he can to lock up Barrett longterm. This really is a match made in heaven.
