ESPN reported on Tuesday that Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White has requested a trade. It also noted, though, that the Buccaneers don’t want to trade the standout linebacker, despite White being “fed up” with the team, according to the report.

FOX Sports NFC South Reporter Greg Auman noted that trading White would clear $11 million in cap space for the Buccaneers.

White is entering the final season of his rookie deal and has been unable to find common ground with the Buccaneers on a contract extension.

The 25-year-old linebacker has spent his entire NFL career with the Buccaneers, who selected him with the No. 5 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft out of LSU. This past season, he totaled 124 combined tackles, 5.5 sacks, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles. Additionally, White has earned one Pro Bowl nod and started on the team’s 2020 Super Bowl defense.

If White is moved, Lavonte David, K.J. Britt and J.J. Russell would make up Tampa Bay’s depth at inside linebacker.

The Buccaneers are coming off their third consecutive playoff appearance, though, they lost to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round. Quarterback Tom Brady retired shortly after the season, and Tampa Bay signed Baker Mayfield to a one-year deal to presumably be its 2023 starter.
