Cornerback could be a dynamic position for the Bucs this offseason, with Sterling Moore and Mike Jenkins as free agents and Johnthan Banks, Alterraun Verner and Jude Adjei-Barimah unsure of their roles moving forward with a new coach and new defensive coordinator.

Toward that end, the Bucs are taking a closer look at veteran cornerback Brice McCain, who was released by the Dolphins last week and is visiting One Buc Place today. Players released after the end of the season can sign with new teams immediately, rather than free agents who must wait until March 10 to talk to other NFL teams.

McCain, 29, would be on his fourth team in as many seasons, having gone from the Texans to the Steelers to the Dolphins. He has nine career interceptions and has started 19 games in the past two seasons. He'd likely be just a depth signing, offsetting Jenkins if the Bucs opted not to re-sign him. He has no immediate ties to coach Dirk Koetter or defensive coordinator Mike Smith, though new linebackers coach Mark Duffner was in the same role with Miami last year so he saw him up close there.
