Per Greg Auman, of The Athletic

According to Greg Auman of The Athletic, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have brought in former New England Patriots defensive tackle Kyle Love in for a visit, and are expected to sign the ten-year veteran.

A couple of hours before that tweet, Auman reported Love was in town and was pending medical results - including a COVID-19 test.

The 33-year old was a teammate of Tom Brady’s and Rob Gronkowski’s with the Patriots from 2010-2013 and was part of the team which fell victim to Eli Manning and the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

After leaving New England, Love spent 2014 with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs. In 2015, he joined the Carolina Panthers, and remained with the team through the 2019 season.

If the move happens as expected, Love would bring experience and depth to a relatively shallow group on the defensive front, for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
