The Buccaneers are scuffling, despite a collection of high-profile parts.

And in advance of today’s trade deadline, they’re eager to let you know some of those parts are available.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs will consider offers for former first-rounders Doug Martin and Mark Barron.

Both are caught in the trap that so often happens to first-rounders of previous regimes when new coaches and General Managers take over.

Martin’s expendable because he’s not playing so well (2.9 yards per carry) and they have Charles Sims coming back soon. Barron’s kind of a replication of free agent addition Dashon Goldson, and probably has more value to others.

They’re also taking calls on wide receiver Vincent Jackson, but with his age and contract, they won’t get as much in return.
