Free agent safety J.J. Wilcox plans to sign a two-year deal with the Buccaneers, per WDAE radio in Tampa.

Wilcox, 26, spent his first four seasons with the Cowboys, who drafted him in the third round in 2013. Wilcox was a full-time starter in 2014-15 and started four games while playing in all 16 last season.

Per previous reports, Wilcox had also planned to visit the Seahawks before the Buccaneers convinced him to agree to terms.

Wilcox has five career interceptions, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He’s started 38 of 58 career games.

The Cowboys previously lost safety Barry Church in free agency to the Jaguars.

  1. Surprised that Cowboys let JJ walk, he was finally improving his coverage skills to go along with natural hitting ability. ‘Boys must feel really good about Kevon Frasier to let both Church and JJ walk.

  2. This is not good news for me. JJ was the best hitter to play in Dallas since Roy Williams roamed at safety, and he was improving all the time. Great move for Tampa, but a big loss for Dallas.
