Report: Buccaneers Trying To Trade OT Anthony Collins, Will Cut Him If No Interest

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Buccaneers are currently in the process of trying to trade OT Anthony Collins.

However, should they find no teams willing to take on his contract, they are prepared to release him outright.

There has been talk that Collins could be a cap casualty after his first year with the Buccaneers was largely underwhelming.

Collins, 29 signed a five-year, $30 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed with the Buccaneers, but was limited to appearing in just 10 games during his first in Tampa Bay.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Collins would free up $6 million in available cap space and create no dead money. Conversely, releasing him would split that figure evenly between cap relief and dead money.

Pro Football Focus has Collins rated as the No. 63 offensive tackle out of 84 qualifying players. Although, he was rated as a decent run blocker.

    I don’t see any team trading for him if the Buccaneers are going to release him…
