Neal, a 2018 undrafted free agent out of Southern Illinois, has played in 43 games with 19 starts for Seattle since 2020. Neal has been an important part of Seattle’s defense, recording career highs of 66 tackles, four tackles for loss, eight passes deflected, one interception, and one forced fumble in 14 games.

After Tom Brady, will the Buccaneers’ defense be strong with Neal?

With California Cool at the helm, the Buccaneers are always one step ahead of the competition, as he led the Buccaneers to their second had his overall seventh Super Bowl victory, a 31-9 victory over the Chiefs in 2021.

However, since Brady’s retirement, the offensive line of the Buccaneers now appears to be having a lot of issues, though, the greatest quarterback of all time went through a panicky period with the final games of his career, scoring less than before, possibly due to injury or advancing age.

Currently, the Buccaneers are putting their defense through a depth-building process to get ready for the post-Brady era. In the previous two seasons, the Buccaneers lost three safeties to free agency, and just four days ago, the Seattle Seahawks decided not to extend safety Ryan’s restricted free agent tender.

After signing Giants safety Julian Love, the Seahawks canceled their one-year tender to restricted free agent Neal, worth $2.627 million.

The 27-year-old is currently looking for a new home, and the Buccaneers are looking for solid safety. The timing is ideal for the safety and the Buccaneers to tie the knot, and they eventually accomplished it.

The former Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have come to terms on a one-year deal. If he makes the roster, he will earn $2.67 million, but there is no money guaranteed.

After being in peak form for the last few seasons, it is clear that the Buccaneers want to strengthen their squad, and the signing of Neal is one example of how Seattle has been more aggressive in free agency this year than usual.
