According to Stroud, Vea is expected to miss some time at the start of training camp, but he should be 100 percent for the start of the regular season.

This comes a day after the news surfaced that Buccaneers OLB Jason Pierre-Paul underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

Vea, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2018. He agreed to a four-year, $14,878,424 contract that included an $8,900,672 signing bonus.

The contract has a fifth-year option for the Buccaneers to pick up in 2021. 

In 2019, Vea appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 35 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three passes defended.
