Day three of free agency is about to start, and the major spending will have likely died down. Still, a few big names have yet to sign somewhere - and those names include Mario Williams and Peyton Manning.
As for the Bucs, they've made it clear that they're not going to go crazy in free agency from now on. In fact, they don't even have the cap room to do so. Unless I'm completely mistaken, they have some $12 million in cap room left, $5 million of which will go to rookies yet to be drafted. That $7 million is enough to sign one second-tier free agent, or two third-tier free agents, but not much more than that. Keep in mind that the Bucs will need some flexibility during the season as well. So: don't expect the Bucs to sign any big names - unless they get rid of Kellen Winslow, a move that would free up $6,5 million in cap room but would immediately make the team worse.
Here's one bit to hold you over, the Bucs may be interested in Bears DT Amobi Okoye:
