Buccaneers: Shaquil Barrett earns NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors

Rewinding to the Spring and the first few days of free agency have already passed, but then a notification pops up on your phone. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett to a one-year deal; what a deal it has turned out to be as he has been a top performer for the Buccaneers over the first two weeks of the season.

On Thursday night, Barrett was all over Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton as the Buccaneers went on to win the game. Tallying three sacks on the day, Barrett was a force all night and was too much for the Panthers’ offensive line to handle.
