Bennett won’t give Bucs chance to match, after all


Yes, Buccaneers defensive end Michael Bennett told a Tampa radio station that he’ll give the Bucs a chance to match any offer he receives in free agency.

No, he didn’t mean what he said.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Bennett will not give the Bucs a chance to match. Per the source, Bennett misspoke.

Not that it would matter. While Bennett’s words could in theory scare other teams away from engaging in a potentially fruitless exercise, the Bucs don’t seem to be inclined to pay Bennett anything close to what he could get on the open market.
