Clayborn, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers, but he hasn’t developed into the kind of pass-rusher they were hoping he’d be. Last year, the Bucs did not pick up his fifth-year option, which is why he’s in position to test the open market next week.
In 2014, Clayborn was limited to appearing in just one game due to a torn biceps he sustained in earlier September.
