Q: Why haven't the Bucs looked into getting a defensive end in free agency like Freeney or Dumervil? The Bucs cannot afford to let rookies start at those positions.
A: The departure of Michael Bennett has left the Bucs a little thin at DE. At this point, it looks like they will address their DL needs in the draft. Edge rushers like Dwight Freeney and John Abraham have been out there in free agency for quite a while. They are both nearing the end of their NFL careers and the Bucs are reluctant to add older players.
