Buccaneers | Johnthan Banks could be nickel back

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 09:38:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Johnthan Banks could be the team's nickel back in 2013, according to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times. Holder points out that the team restructured CB Eric Wright's contract for 2013, so it would make sense to have a veteran across from CB Darrelle Revis. This would give the team the time necessary to break in Banks slowly in 2013.
