NFL Free Agency 2014: Buccaneers still targeting cornerbacks, receivers, linemen

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers still are not done in free agency, as they're aiming to apparently overhaul their entire roster in about three days' time.

Cornerbacks, wide receivers and offensive linemen are still visiting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After signing a slew of free agents including DE Michael Johnson, CB Alterraun Verner and T Anthony Collins, the Bucs are still bringing in players for visits. Earlier reports suggested that cornerback Charles Tillman, center Evan Dietrich-Smith and wide receivers Ted Ginn and Emmanuel Sanders were in Tampa to discuss signing on with the Bucs.

Now, the Bucs are also bringing former Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond in for a visit, assuming he doesn't sign with the Redskins or re-sign with the Seahawks, per Jason La Canfora.

The team currently has two starting-quality cornerbacks in Johnthan Banks and Alterraun Verner, while Danny Gorrer, Leonard Johnson and D.J. Moore (signed last month) add some much-needed depth. Moore did well playing nickel sets in Chicago, but the Bucs could really use some additional quality and depth at the position. Tillman or Thurmond would obviously fill that role.

As for receiver, the Bucs have no depth there. Although Vincent Jackson is a high-level starter, Mike Williams appears to be in the dog-house due to some minor off-field incidents, and the team has no capable depth beyond those two. The draft is very deep at the position, though, which should help -- but the Bucs clearly want to address this position in free agency, too.
