Buccaneers News: Signing of Matt Feiler official, Nick Leverett signs tender


Hey there, Bucs fans! I’m excited to bring you the latest news about our team. The signing of Matt Feiler has just been made official, adding another talented player to our already impressive roster. Feiler, a former Pittsburgh Steeler, is sure to bring his experience and skills to our offensive line. Additionally, Nick Leverett has signed a tender, securing his spot on the team. This news is sure to excite fans and set us up for a successful season.

Matt Feiler Officially Signs with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

On March 17th, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially announced the signing of offensive lineman Matt Feiler, adding depth and versatility to the team’s offensive line.

Feiler played four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, starting in 39 games including all 16 games in both 2019 and 2020. He has experience playing at both guard and tackle positions and is expected to contribute immediately to the Buccaneers offensive line.

The 28-year-old lineman has been praised for his leadership, work ethic, and technical ability by his former team and is sure to be a valuable asset to the Buccaneers as they continue to build upon their recent Super Bowl win.

Head coach Bruce Arians had high praise for Feiler, stating, “Matt is a tough, physical and intelligent offensive lineman who has proven himself as a starter at both guard and tackle during his career. He will be a great addition to our offensive line, and we are excited to have him in Tampa Bay.”

Feiler’s signing solidifies the Buccaneers’ offensive line depth and provides them with a reliable starter who can play multiple positions. With the departure of veteran center Ryan Jensen now being a possibility, Feiler’s versatility will become an important asset for the team.

Nick Leverett Re-Signed with the Buccaneers

In addition to the Feiler signing, the Buccaneers have also signed offensive lineman Nick Leverett to a tender offer. Leverett originally joined the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2020.

While he did not appear in any games during his rookie season, the team sees potential in Leverett as a developmental player and has re-signed him to a one-year deal. The 6-foot-4, 312-pound lineman played college football at North Carolina Central, where he started in 24 games during his final two seasons.

Leverett will continue to work on his game and develop under the supervision of the Buccaneers coaching staff. He has the potential to become an important piece on the team’s offensive line and help the Buccaneers sustain long-term success.

Buccaneers Desperate for Offensive Line Depth

The signings of Feiler and Leverett come at a crucial time for the Buccaneers, as they have been working to address the depth issues on their offensive line since the end of last season.

Last season’s online line injury crisis made it hard for the Buccaneers to maintain momentum as they suffered injuries to key players. Free agency has been a perfect opportunity for the Buccaneers coaching staff to add depth and variety to their roster while addressing their weak points.

If the Buccaneers are to repeat as Super Bowl champions, they will need to ensure their offensive line can handle the pressures of a longer and tougher 17 game season. With the addition of Feiler and Leverett, the team has improved its offensive line depth, which will give the team some room for error in the case of injuries or fatigue.


The Buccaneers’ offensive line signings provide them with depth, versatility, and experience to supplement their returning players. The addition of Matt Feiler, in particular, will be a valuable asset to the team as he will help stabilize the line, allowing the group to communicate and work together more effectively.

The Buccaneers are undoubtedly a team that has set its sights on repeating as Super Bowl champions next season, and by adding these two players to their offensive line, they have taken an important step towards achieving that goal.

Their focus continues to be on player development, strategic signings, and maximizing the full potential of their roster as they aim to have long-lasting success in the NFL.
