Hargreaves, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $14.17 million contract that includes $14.17 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $2.38 million this season.
The contract also includes a fifth-year option for the Buccaneers to pick up in 2019.
Hargreaves landed on the Buccaneers’ injured reserve last season after sustaining a hamstring injury, so this would be a big blow to Tampa Bay.
In 2017, Hargreaves appeared in nine games for the Buccaneers and recorded 42 tackles, no interceptions and five pass defenses.
Clarke, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Bengals back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2,820,380 contract and set to make a base salary of $700,000 when the Bengals elected to cut him loose last year as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.
The Buccaneers later signed Clake to a contract at the start of the season and brought him back on a new contract this past March. However, he was released last week.
In 2017, Clarke appeared in 15 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 15 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 84 edge rusher out of 106 qualifying players.
