The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will release linebacker Shaquil Barrett, according to sources.

Barrett had a $15.04 million option bonus due next month and will be a salary cap charge of just under $14.2 million for 2024.

Barrett, 31, was a key contributor on Tampa Bay's championship-winning defense in 2020, recording three sacks against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game and another sack against the Kansas Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
