Shaq Barrett Will 'For Sure' Sign Bucs Franchise Tag If No New Contract Reached

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett said during an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio Monday that he would sign his franchise tag if he and the team can't agree to a long-term contract extension by the July 15 deadline.

"We're still trying to work something out," he said. "The franchise tag, if I don't get nothing done, I'm going to sign that for sure. But it's just we're still trying to work to get something done and we're just going to wait as long as we could to try and get it done.
