The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not done bringing back members from their Super Bowl LV roster.

The Bucs are reportedly bringing back defensive tackle Rakeem Nuñez-Roches. NFL reporter Adam Caplan had the details Thursday afternoon.

After the new league year began this week, it was reported that the New England Patriots expressed interest in the veteran defensive lineman. When it was all said and done, it seems that “Nacho” felt more comfortable staying put.

In 2020, Nuñez-Roches started 11 games in place of injured defensive tackle Vita Vea. He recorded 20 combined tackles during that span.

Tampa Bay keeps a very good depth player for the interior part of the defensive line who filled in admirably when called upon.
