Bucs nearing new deal for veteran defensive lineman William Gholston

The Bucs are working on a new deal for free-agent defensive lineman William Gholston that would keep him in Tampa Bay for a 10th season and perhaps beyond.

Details of his potential new deal weren’t available, but ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Gholston received overtures from a handful of other teams.

Buccaneers' William Gholston: Disruptive in Week 4 win

Gholston recorded four solo tackles, including one sack, and was credited with three quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 19-17 win over the Patriots on Sunday night. The veteran lineman now has sacks in back-to-back games, a rarity for a player who's never recorded more than three in any of his previous eight seasons. Gholston has multiple stops in three consecutive contests as well, with his early-season play particularly encouraging considering he's in his age-30 campaign. Despite the current surge, Gholston's typically low tackle numbers and sparse complementary stats keep him off the IDP radar.
