The Rise of SACK Barrett!
On March 15th, 2019, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former Denver Bronco OLB Shaquil Barrett to a one year, prove it deal. At the time, this was considered an okay move by the Bucs and expectations were pretty low. Almost 7 months later, he has proved it alright. Barrett has tallied 9 sacks through the first 4 games, which leads the NFL and ties an NFL record in that span. Barrett has been so explosive, fans have gifted him the moniker, “Sack” Barrett. Barrett has yet to miss a game with at least one sack so far into the regular season. Barrett is an integral piece to a rejuvenated, young and hungry defense led by defensive genius Todd Bowles. If Barrett continues his high level of play, he will not only find himself with a new contract but his name in the record books.
