Dekoda Watson closes in on changing teams

Watson AP

Every year, free agents emerge and sign quickly who weren’t necessarily in the middle of radar screen in the days before the process opened.

This year, one guy who’s not getting a lot of attention will be popping up with a new team within 24 hours after the light goes green: Buccaneers linebacker Dekoda Watson. Per a league source, Watson is expected to sign a contract with a team other than Tampa soon after the free-agency frenzy launches.

A seventh-round pick in 2010, he has appeared in 60 career games with six starts. The Bucs would like to keep him, but not at the numbers he’s likely to get elsewhere.

And here’s where we usually mention a guy’s spot on the PFT Free Agent Hot 100. The only problem? Watson didn’t make the cut.

    I suggested that you have 150 names on the list so that we can keep track of more signings! If you can’t make the 150 list then no big deal, but there are a few players who arguably shouldn’t be in the Top 100 and a Top 150 helps cover those tracks.

    Like a trip to Baskin Robbins, there are 31 choices. The suspense is killing me!!!!

    Great special teamer and decent pash rusher. I’ll be rooting for him.

    Wish Tampa would’ve resigned him though.

    Yeah, they are too busy over paying for other teams solid players.
