Report: Buccaneers interested in trading for a wide receiver

With Vincent Jackson hurt, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are thin at receiver, outside of Mike Evans. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS sports, Tampa Bay is looking to the trade market to fix that weakness.

Some combination of a pick, and either Alterraun Verner or Johnthan Banks could probably land a significant receiver.

Alshon Jeffery’s name has been talked about in trades, though Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reported that those rumors have “no merit” to them. Torrey Smith has been another named thrown around in trade rumors. Ted Ginn and Brandon Marshall would also both┬ámake some sense, coming from non-contending teams.

The Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers and New York Jets all have needs in the secondary as well, so Banks and Verner would be valuable commodities.
