Buccaneers Re-Signing LB Kevin Minter

Field Yates reports that the Buccaneers are re-signing veteran LB Kevin Minter to a one-year deal that qualifies for the veteran salary benefit as part of the new CBA agreement.

According to Aaron Wilson, Minter’s deal is worth $1.187 million and includes a $137,500 roster bonus on the third day after contract execution.

Minter, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $4,390,288 contract with the Cardinals before signing a one-year, $4.25 million contract with the Bengals in 2017.

The Jets signed Minter to a contract in 2018 only to release him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. The Buccaneers later added during the season and brought him back last year on a one-year contract. 

In 2019, Minter appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 33 tackles, a fumble recovery and two passes defended.
