The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached out to Richard Sherman to gauge his interest in joining the team.

The Buccaneers placed starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting on injured reserve last week.

"We got to see," Bruce Arians said. "He's got other things going on, too. Just a matter of, 'I coach the ones that we got and let [Jason Licht] handle the rest of that.' We'll kick the tires on some other guys, too. But it's just a matter of, 'No, we'll talk and see, and if it's the right fit, it's the right fit and we'll move on it.'"

The Buccaneers will be without Murphy-Bunting, who also serves as their nickelback, for an indefinite time after he suffered a dislocated right elbow in Week 1.
