Buccaneers: Charles Tillman, Ted Ginn among free agent visitors

The Buccaneers publicly confirmed five free agent visits on their website Wednesday, with three players listed in PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100 among those who have met with Tampa Bay.

Bears cornerback Charles Tillman (No. 49 on the Hot 100), Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Collins (No. 50) and Packers center Evan Dietrich-Smith (No. 92) are among the unrestricted free agents to have visited with Tampa Bay. Patriots reserve linebacker Dane Fletcher also has met with the Buccaneers, the club confirmed on its website.

Fletcher, Tillman, Collins and Dietrich-Smith had all previously been linked to Tampa Bay in various media reports.

The Bucs also announced that Panthers wide receiver/returner Ted Ginn had visited, which appears to be a bit of new free agency news. Ginn, 28, hauled in 36 passes for 556 yards and five TDs for Carolina in 2013. Ginn is also an accomplished kickoff and punt returner, with six career return TDs to his credit.

    From everything I’ve seen, winning free agency is how you win in the NFL (except for last year with the Dolphins…and the year before that with the Bucs…and the year before that with the Eagles…and the year before that with the Redskins…)

    Is Carolina planning on having no wide receivers this coming season?

    Anybody else getting sick of the Buccaneers signing EVERYBODY every offseason?

    Hope to see Ginn visiting in Berea…and signing.
    Come back home Ted.
    Take that slot job and return a few KO’s and punts.

    I hope Tillman stays a Bear.

    No state taxes and great weather (especially in March) will do that.

    Looks like Greg Olsen is destined to be an All-Pro

    Stop with the redskin and eagles comparisons. It a new regime and what they are doing is more like what the chiefs did last year

    I hope they sign Ginn. That may take them out of the running of drafting Evans so Evans falls to my Steelers.

    The Panthers (Ginn’s third team) are starved for receivers, and didn’t try to keep Ginn.

    He’s a legend in his own mind.

    Can we get a new coach? Coach Buzzkill is too depressing for Tampa Bay.

  14. buccaboo says: Mar 12, 2014 8:07 PM

    Tillman is the man for this defense.

  15. bigkurt6 says: Mar 12, 2014 8:50 PM

    Cause he’s Lovie’s guy

  16. Jessica says: Mar 12, 2014 9:39 PM

    Tillman is the man for the Bears defense! :) In all honesty, he and Lovie do have a great relationship and as a Bears fan it will be sad to see him go.
