The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on linebacker Shaquil Barrett, last season's league-leader in sacks. Barrett expressed his preference to reach a long-term agreement to return to the Bucs leading up to free agency. However, he said he'd accept the franchise designation if it came to that. “I’m going to play off the tag, I've got to. But I do want that long-term deal. It's all about security for me and my family and that's all I’ve been wanting my whole time in the NFL is getting that security.”
