The Bucs seem more concerned about keeping their own players than going hard after guys from other squads.
Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times reports that underrated linebacker Quincy Black is closing in a deal. Black wants to stay put, and it sounds like something can be worked out.
Guard Davin Joseph isn’t sure if he has a contract offer yet.
“My agent, Ben Dogra, is having talks with other teams but I don’t know about any offers yet. I’m just waiting like everyone else,” Joseph wrote on Twitter.
Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik indicated he was going to wine and dine his own free agents this week, so Joseph could at least get a free dinner out of the deal. Dominik made it clear he wants to keep Joseph. (Linebacker Barrett Ruud, not so much.)
