2011 NFL Offseason: Will Nnamdi Asomugha Sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

The young, talented Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a problem.

They have an incredible base of young talent—Josh Freeman, LeGarrette Blount, Mike Williams, Donald Penn, Gerald McCoy, among others. But two of the men I have not mentioned, Tanard Jackson and Aqib Talib, are likely never to wear the pewter and red again.

With Jackson suspended until late September because of a substance abuse violation and Talib facing criminal charges, it is unlikely that Mark Dominik will keep either of them on the roster if and when the 2011 season begins.

That being said, the Bucs have a gaping hole in the secondary. With a bite-sized payroll of $57 million last season, the Bucs can certainly afford to splurge during free agency. The player that they should target is expensive, elite and could singlehandedly transform the Bucs defense from good to great.

This player is Nnamdi Asomugha.
