Bruce Arians responds to rumors of Buccaneers eyeing Richard Sherman
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just keep on winning on the field. Off the field, they could be working behind the scenes to add some help to their defense. Reports came out that the Buccaneers had expressed interest in veteran Richard Sherman.
Well, head coach Bruce Arians touched on those reports.
#Bucs HC Bruce Arians confirmed to reporters that the team has reached out to free agent CB Richard Sherman. "We'll talk and see and if it's the right fit, it's the right fit and we'll move on it."

Adding a talent like Sherman–even though he isn’t the player he once was–would be huge for the defending Super Bowl Champions. Honestly, it wouldn’t be surprising, either.
The Bucs have added a ton of hungry veterans, and Sherman fits the bill and could at least provide some veteran expertise to this defense. The Bucs are rolling once again, beating the Dallas Cowboys in the opener, and then finishing off the Atlanta Falcons as Mike Edwards stole the show with a pair of pick-6’s to run the Falcons out of town.
Richard Sherman has yet to find a team, as surprising as that seems, and other teams had expressed interest in the former Pro Bowl cornerback, and it should only be a matter of time until he lands somewhere.
Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, and Richard Sherman would be a wild group in the Buccaneers uniforms, and it could just become a reality.
