Bucs Land Chukwurah

Patrick Chukwurah will indeed be a Buc when he comes in for a visit on March 6.
As we told you earlier, Chukwurah’s agent has been in negotiations with the Bucs, and those negotiations just netted the former Broncos LB/DE a new 5-year, $5.5 million contract.
The deal is the best indication yet that the Bucs aren’t confident about re-signing DE Dewayne White.
White is in Detroit today visiting his old D-line coach Rod Marinelli. He may not leave there without a contract. If that proves to be the case the Bucs appear to have a replacement in hand.
Though he’s listed as a linebacker, most scouts believe Chukwurah is a player who is at his best rushing off the edge and out of a three-point stance. He is also a super special teams player.
