RBLR Bucs Podcast: Buccaneers Winfield Jr Resets The Market


On this episode of the RBLR Bucs Podcast the guys react to Buccaneers safety Antoine Winfield Jr’s contract and how it reset the market value.

This deal is well deserved considering how well Winfield Jr has been playing since entering the league in 2020. He was a major component of their Super Bowl run and had a season for the ages in 2023. Six sacks, six forced fumbles (led the league), 3 interceptions, and 12 passes defended. All of which were career highs for him and what led him to his first all-pro nomination.

He has become not just the highest paid safety, but the highest paid defensive back in NFL history. And is also the first time a safety has become the highest paid DB, which I did not know. It is a four-year $84.1 million deal with $45 million guaranteed. It also passes Derwin James as the highest paid safety (he had $19 million a year).
