Bucs has made some scamming free agent acquisitions so far. They have added veteran defensive backs Keanu Neal and Logan Ryan, Russell Gage’s wide receiver, and highly efficient right keeper, Shaq Mason.In terms of the draft, the hacker made a worker-like effort to add strong prospects to key areas of need. Although not considered “the sexiest” in the draft classes, you’d be hard-pressed to find an expert who doesn’t believe the Bucs have been effective at adding solid odds, most of whom should be able to contribute this season and beyond.

On the other hand, Saints were more graceful. After signing former New York Jet Safety company Marcus May to a 3-year, $28.5 million contract earlier in the season, they added the biggest name in the free agent safety market, Teran Mathieu, nine days ago.
After securing the Eagles’ second first-round pick, then trading it further in the draft to add talented Ohio State wide receiver, Chris Olaf, with the 11th overall pick, it became very clear that the Saints, despite losing longtime head coach Shawn, Payton after last season, they still expect to win this season.
Well, it turns out they didn’t end there.

With Michael Thomas expected to return in good health for 2022, the addition of an in-house electric running hitter like Olave, and now a veteran slot receiver like Landry, there’s no denying that the Saints will deploy a much better offensive product than they were able to put on the field last season. .
And for anyone with a short memory, the Saints were 2-0 against the Buccaneers last season and 4-0 over the past two regular seasons.
Bucs fans will be quick to point out the fact that the Buccaneers won the only game with the Saints that really mattered during that time frame, which was Tampa’s 30-20 win in their Superdome playoff match in 2021.
Despite a string of moves within the NFC Southern Division this off-season, the free agency is far from over. Hopefully, for Bucs fans, the next great free agent will be signed at 1 Buccaneer Place, Tampa, Florida.
