The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had their first player opt out of the 2020 season. Back up tackle Brad Seaton, who spent last year on the practice squad and was fighting for the 4th tackle spot on this years roster.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, reports that Seaton qualifies for the higher-risk stipend of $350,000. That leaves tackle Josh Wells as the 4th tackle on the roster behind projected starters Donovan Smith, Tristian Wirfs and swing tackle Joe Haeg.
The Buccaneers could look to bring in another tackle off the free agent market or could stand pat with their current roster. With the 4pm deadline for players to opt out it remains to be seen if Seaton is the only player to opt out for the Buccaneeers.
