Shaq Barrett officially signing Buccaneers' tag Tuesday

Tampa Bay Buccaneers edge rusher Shaq Barrett plans to sign his franchise tender on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Barrett is due $15.8 million as a linebacker, though he's filed a grievance to be paid as a defensive end. Either way, Barrett will be back with the Buccaneers for another season. Following an uneventful start to his career with the Denver Broncos, the 27-year-old signed a one-year deal last offseason and then went on to lead the NFL with 19.5 sacks.

numberFire's models project Barrett for 14.2 sacks, 73.8 tackles, 3.3 fumbles forced, 1.1 fumbles recovered, and 2.6 pass deflections this season. The Buccaneers D/ST is 20th in our preseason fantasy rankings.
