Shaquil Barrett to Sign Franchise Tender, Files Grievance


Shaquil Barrett has officially informed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he will sign his franchise tender, per Adam Schefter. However, he put in a grievance with the NFLPA to be tagged as a defensive end and not as a linebacker.

The difference in money between a DE and linebacker is $2 million. Although this is good news, both the Bucs and Barrett are not close to a long-term contract. The Buccaneers all-time sack leader has been pushing for a long-term deal. However, it seems the team is not set to give him one with so many uncertainties heading into the 2020 season.
