Buccaneers Trade Starting Defensive Back to Lions


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have trade defensive back Carlton Davis to the Detroit Lions per NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero.

Pre Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times,

“Bucs get a 2024 3rd round pick from Detroit. Lions get Davis and the Bucs 2024 6th and a 2025 6th round picks.”

Via Fox Sports Greg Auman,

“Bucs shed Davis’ 2024 salary of $14 million entirely. He leaves with $14.1 million in dead money, so Bucs clear about $6 million in new cap space this year and $8 million next year.”

Davis has missed 16 games due to injury in the last three seasons.
