The Tampa Bay Buccaneers gutted their roster this offseason and purged veterans left and right from their offensive line.
Everyone from Jeremy Zuttah and Donald Penn to Pro Bowlers Davin Joseph and Carl Nicks were let go or traded as the Bucs decided to rebuild their offensive line from the ground up. One direction that could lead is former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman and professional bully Richie Incognito.
According to Rick Stroud from the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers aren’t actively pursuing Incognito for their offensive line, but they’re not ruling him out either.

Of course, this doesn’t mean the Bucs are going to go out and try and sign the toxic Incognito, but they’re leaving the door open, if ever so slightly, to the possibility that he could be considered.
It’s going to be interesting to see of anyone signs Incognito after his bullying scandal, but there may be a team that gives him another chance and that team might be the Buccaneers.
