We told you a little while ago that the Buccaneers were working to keep linebacker Quincy Black from leaving the team as a free agent.
Black’s agent Marc Lillibridge tweeted the news on Wednesday afternoon and, being an agent, attached the terms of the deal to his tweet. It is a five-year, $29 million deal with Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com adding that $11.5 million is guaranteed.
Black, a third-round pick in 2007, started 11 games for the Bucs last season before a knee injury ended his season. He had two sacks and an interception and showed an ability to play in all areas of the defensive game. If Black’s healthy and the Buccaneers don’t regress, he could grow a bigger profile in their defense.
