RB Bobby Rainey signs qualifying offer with Buccaneers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers have announced that running back Bobby Rainey has signed a one-year qualifying offer the team extended to him before the free agency period. He was a restricted free agent and was given an opportunity to negotiate with other teams.

Rainey will compete for playing time with Tampa Bay. He rushed for 406 yards in 2014, but faded at the end of the season with just two carries in the last six games combined.

Report: Six teams in the mix for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Vikings are reportedly going to give it one more week of searching for a trade partner for running back Adrian Peterson, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

A source told the newspaper if Peterson is not traded by next week, the Vikings will keep him. Minnesota is still reportedly talking with the Cardinals, Falcons, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers and Buccaneers to get a possible deal done, according to the source.

Peterson was reinstated last week by the league for his suspension stemming from child-abuse charges. He is under contract with the Vikings for the next three seasons for $43.25 million, including $12.75 in 2015.

Lions trade DE George Johnson to Buccaneers for draft pick
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Rather than match the offer the sheet for defensive lineman George Johnson, the Lions agreed to trade Johnson to the Buccaneers on Wednesday, the Lions announced.

Johnson was a restricted free agent and signed a three year, $9 million offer sheet with the Buccaneers last week. The Lions were previously disputing the Buccaneers offer to Johnson.

Along with Johnson, the Lions also sent the seventh-round pick the team received in the Haloti Ngata trade from Baltimore. The Lions will receive a fifth-round pick from the Buccaneers in this year's draft.

In 2014, Johnson produced six sacks and 29 tackles over 16 games.

Lions disputing Buccaneers' offer to DE George Johnson
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The offer sheet the Buccaneers gave to defensive end George Johnson is being disputed by the Lions, and a decision by an independent arbiter is potentially 10 days away, per MLive.com. 

Johnson signed a three-year, $9 million deal with the Bucs last week, giving the Lions until 4 p.m. Monday to match the offer. The reason for the Lions' protest is not known at this time. 

The five-year veteran racked up six sacks last season for the Lions.
