The Buccaneers continue to be active in free agency.
The club’s website reported Thursday that the team has reached a five-year contract agreement with Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Collins.
Collins (6-5, 315) has been one of the Bengals’ top reserve tackles for six seasons, starting 25 games in that span. He was No. 54 on PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.
According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers could now look to trade incumbent left tackle Donald Penn.
Were Penn available, it would add to the depth of a tackle market that has been thinned in free agency, with Collins one of the last major left tackle candidates to depart.
