Happy New Year Bucs Nation. We kick off the 2021 NFL new league year talking about all the free agent frenzy. Bucs reclaiming some big names off of free agency like Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Stinnie, Chris Godwin, Lavonte David, Ryan Succop, and more.
The biggest news this week was the 4-year $68 million signing of outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett. Notably one of the biggest free agents hitting the market, the Bucs were going to make sure they lock in their star edge rusher, and pay him the premium he’s owed.

On this weeks episode, we are celebrating the new year with Rhett Matthew, host of the Cannon Fire Podcast. We chat about unsigned backup players and what he thinks the Bucs will need to do to ensure the Bucs have depth.
For block two, I’m joined by iHeart Radio host & producer for 95.3 WDAE/AM620 sports talk radio, Zac Blobner. He continues to remain adamant about the Bucs focusing on the defensive line. Huge question marks surrounding Antonio Brown’s market value, and if Leonard Fournette is even worth renewing for 2021.
We close out the show with Bucs Nation writer and analyst, Chris Schoenherr with “I don’t give a buc” and discuss early draft prospects. There’s a lot of freedom at the 32nd pick, and the Bucs could take full advantage of it.
