Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White has requested a trade from the team as he is unhappy with his current contract.
With the team and player unable to agree upon a new contract extension, the Bucs now have to decide if they will act upon a Devin White trade. The expectation was that White would be a core member of the defense for years to come.
White, 25, was selected by the Buccaneers in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft as the fifth overall pick. He quickly established himself as a key player on the team’s defense, and his contributions were instrumental in helping the Buccaneers win Super Bowl LV in 2021.
During his college career at LSU, White was a standout player and earned numerous accolades, including the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker in 2018. He was also a consensus All-American and a first-team All-SEC selection in 2018.
As a professional player, White has continued to impress, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2020 and being named First-Team All-Pro in both 2020 and 2021. His speed, athleticism, and ability to read and react to plays make him one of the most talented and promising young linebackers in the NFL today.
