  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Gets second sack of season

    Nunez-Roches tallied four tackles (three solo), including one sack, during the Buccaneers' 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns in Week 12.

    The veteran defensive tackle established a new career high in tackles with Sunday's tally, which put him at 22 stops for the season. Nunez-Roches now also has a career-best two sacks in 2022, and he continues to put together reasonably productive efforts in his rotational role.

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Staying in Tampa Bay

    Nunez-Roches re-signed with the Buccaneers on a two-year, $5 million deal Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    The offseason strategy for Tampa Bay is clear as the franchise pursues a Super Bowl repeat; bring everybody back. While Nunez-Roches signing a new contract may be a less-publicized transaction compared to those of defensive stars Lavonte David and Shaquil Barrett, the 27-year-old nevertheless joins a growing list of would-be free agents who GM Jason Licht has managed to retain from last year's roster. Nunez-Roches started all four of Tampa Bay's postseason games in January and February, collecting four tackles and a QB hit.

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Stays with Tampa

    Nunez-Roches (foot) is re-signing with Tampa Bay on a one-year, $2.25 million contract, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Nunez-Roches came off the bench for Tampa last season, recording nine tackles on 293 defensive snaps in 16 games. He'll probably end up in a depth role again, but he could get a shot at a starting job if the Bucs don't sign a replacement for free agent Ndamukong Suh. There hasn't been any indication that Nunez-Roches' foot injury from Week 17 was serious.

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Ready to rock

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Practices fully Monday

    Nunez-Roches (finger) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

    Nunez-Roches sustained a finger injury in Sunday's season-opening loss to the 49ers, but it seemingly wasn't very serious. The Buccaneers will have two more practices for the 26-year-old to prove that the issue is well behind him before Thursday's matchup with Carolina.

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Suffers injury Sunday

    Nunez-Roches suffered a hand injury during Sunday's game against the 49ers and is questionable to return, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    It's unclear how the veteran picked up the injury, but it's serious enough to force him to miss time for evaluation. With Nunez-Roches sidelined, Beau Allen could see an increase in snaps.

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Generates pair of sacks

    Nunez-Roches tallied three tackles (two solo), including two sacks, in the Buccaneers' 13-12 preseason win over the Browns on Friday.

    The reserve defensive lineman had quite the impact, notching his pair of quarterback takedowns in the second half. Nunez-Roches has shown well this preseason, having also recorded multiple stops in the exhibition opener against the Steelers. He'll project as Ndamukong Suh's primary backup at left defensive end in coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 defense during the 2019 campaign.

    Nunez-Roches re-signed with the Buccaneers on Friday, Carmen Vitall of the team's official site reports.

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Not on injury report

    Nunez-Roches is absent from Wednesday's injury report, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Nunez-Roches has missed two straight games due to lingering knee and ankle injuries, but appears to have made a return to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the depth defensive lineman to suit up against the Saints on Sunday .

  • Buccaneers' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Questionable for Sunday

    Nunez-Roches (knee/ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Nunez-Roches is a surprising addition to Friday's injury report, given that he was unlisted Wednesday and Thursday. The depth defensive tackle appears to have picked up a knee injury during practice, resulting in his questionable tag for Week 13. Nunez-Roches has not logged more than 10 defensive snaps since Week 8, so if he were to miss any time, it would be unlikely to significantly impact Tampa Bay's defense.

    Nunez-Roches signed a deal with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The Buccaneers quickly filled their open roster slot after they released fellow defensive tackle Jerel Worthy on Monday. A 2015 sixth-round pick, Nunez-Roches started 11 games for Kansas City last season and recorded 24 tackles and a half-sack. Nunez-Roches will look to provide depth, as injuries to Beau Allen (foot) and Mitch Unrein (knee) have hit the Buccaneers' defensive line.
