Many thought the Bucs would seek help at the running back position during the offseason, so it was no surprise when they drafted Ke’Shawn Vaughn and Raymond Calais a little over a month ago.

Apparently, they’re not done. Per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Bucs have given former Falcons running back Devonta Freeman an offer to join the team.

Now that’s a bit surprising when it comes to the Bucs and their running back situation.

Freeman was released by the Falcons earlier in the year after battling injuries the last three season. The move saved the team around $3.5 million in cap space.

The two-time Pro Bowler has rushed 951 times for 3,972 yards (4.18 ypc) and 32 touchdowns over his six-year career. He’s also recorded 257 receptions for 2,015 yards (7.84 ypr) and 11 touchdowns.

UPDATE:

Per Max Luckan of Pro Football Magazine and Greg Auman of The Athletic, the Buccaneers have not officially made an offer to Freeman;
