The Buccaneers just announced that tackle Jeremy Trueblood has signed his tender as a restricted free agent.
Once again, these kinds of moves are really just housekeeping matters. Trueblood drew no interest on the open market and the time for other teams to make offers to restricted free agents has come and gone.
Basically, Trueblood’s only real option was to sign the tender. The Bucs still can negotiate a long-term contract with him, but Trueblood’s not real high on a list of priorities that also includes restricted free agents Donald Penn and Barrett Ruud.
