Buccaneers finally land their man after all

Two days after the Detroit Lions contested the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offer sheet for restricted free agent George Johnson, the two sides agreed to a trade, according to Rick Stroud.

#Bucs have agreed to a trade with the Lions for RFA DE George Johnson. The teams will swap late round picks.

Rick Stroud    @NFLSTROUD
The Lions had asked the NFL for clarification as to the “principal terms” in the offer. The trade avoids that issue.

The trade has not yet been approved by the NFL but there is an agreement between the Bucs and Lions to swap late round picks.

The teams will swap late-round picks in the deal for the defensive end.
