Shaq “Sack” Barrett: September NFC Defensive Player of the Month
After his outstanding start to the season, Buccaneers LB Shaquil Barrett has been named the September NFC Defensive Player of the Month. In the month of September, Barrett had 20 tackles (5 assisted), nine sacks, four forced fumbles, and an interception. These numbers are on pace to break records if he were able to continue to play at such a fast pace. Barrett was overlooked in Denver and signed a prove it deal with the Bucs and it’s paying dividends for both himself and the team. Shaq Barrett is the first Buccaneers to win Defensive Player of the Month since LB Barrett Rudd did it in September of 2007.
