The Chiefs made him a fifth-round selection in 2015, and he played three seasons there before joining the Bucs.

In his eight seasons, he has appeared in 102 games with 38 starts and has recorded 132 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 12 quarterback hits.

  1. He was good depth rotational player for the Bucs, stepping in for Vea when he was injured the SB year. Good pick up for the G-men.

  2. When you over pay for a below average QB you sign special teams players in free agency

  3. Rakeem may fly under the radar but he was real solid for the Bucs. Excels at run stuffing. Wish the Bucs would have resigned him.
