Someone who knows about the deal said that Safety Jordan Whitehead and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a deal for $9 million over two years, with a chance to go up to $10.5 million. This happened on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

At 27 years old, Whitehead is coming back to the Bucs after two seasons with the New York Jets. He was picked in the fourth round of the 2018 draft and was part of the Bucs defense that helped Tom Brady win the Super Bowl in 2020.

Whitehead, who has 11 interceptions in his career, has played 93 games in six seasons, with 89 starts. During his time with the Jets, he started every game and had a personal best of four interceptions in 2023, three of which were during a victory over the Buffalo Bills.

When he joins the Bucs, Whitehead will once again play with All-Pro safety Antoine Winfield Jr., who was a rookie when they both helped the defense stop Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl.

Tampa Bay's defensive backfield is expected to have a new starter in 2024, with third-year pro Zyon McCollum getting a chance to fill the position left by the recent trade of cornerback Carlton Davis to the Detroit Lions.
