The Tampa Bay Buccaneers introduced four of the five players they’ve signed since free agency opened as Josh McCown’s introduction to the team will have to wait. He may have a partner to be introduced with though, as the Bucs are apparently meeting with Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

According to Jason La Canfora, the Buccaneers are meeting with Sanders on Wednesday and could end up signing him before he leaves town.

 

So far, everyone that has come to Tampa Bay has stayed in Tampa Bay, and Sanders may make that six straight signings. Anthony Collins is an anomaly to this streak, as he has yet to sign but the expectation is that he will.

Sanders hasn’t been linked to the Bucs, but they appear to be in the market for a potential replacement for Mike Williams if he doesn’t come around. Either way, Sanders and the Bucs are meeting and he may be off the market soon.
