The NFL’s trade deadline has come and gone, and as per usual, very minimal movement around the league. The same can be said for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who also did not make a move to acquire anyone before the four o’clock deadline. Many expected the Bucs to be aggressive, Jason Licht and Bruce Arians however, went in a different direction.
For the past few weeks, there has been speculation that the team would look into trading for a cornerback. Since the season started, they have lost starter Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting to injuries and signed veteran Richard Sherman and he is now injured as well. Thin at the position it made sense to work the phones and get a deal done.
The NFL trade deadline has passed and the Bucs have made no deals to fortify their secondary that has been decimated by injuries. They’re hopeful of getting CBs Carlton Davis (quad) and Sean Murphy-Bunting (dislocated elbow) back sometime after the bye week.

The team felt comfortable not making a move for a corner because they feel Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting will return sooner rather than later. There was also speculation the team would kick the tires on adding a Safety as well, but that did not happen. The Buccaneers are happy where they stand and with the depth at every postion.
