The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to add another cornerback to add to one of their biggest free agent acquisitions, Alterraun Verner.
Former Chicago Bears and current free agent cornerback Charles Tillman has visited Tampa Bay and is interested in a reunion with former head coach Lovie Smith, but there hasn’t been a lot of movement on that front.
One player the Buccaneers were thought to have interest in was Seattle Seahawks’ free agent defensive back Walter Thurmond.
That, however, does not appear to be the case.
Bucs are not in play for Seahawks free-agent DB Walter Thurmond, who has visited Jaguars and is visiting 49ers today.

Thurdmon was the 111th overall selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. The former Oregon Duck has spent all four of his NFL seasons in Seattle.
One drawback of signing Thurmond is that he’s only played in 34 of a possible 64 games as a pro.
In 12 games last season, Thurmond had 33 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.
