Free agent cornerback Tim Jennings is to meet up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers later today according to reports.

Ian Rapoport announced on his twitter today that the free agent would be having a meeting with his first team since being cut by the Chicago Bears. The cornerback was one of the first surprise cuts of the week after being let go by the NFC North team on Saturday.

Jennings was told according to Brad Biggs that the reason for his release was because the team was going in a new direction with younger players.

The veteran shouldn’t have any problems with finding another team, and has already been linked with several teams including the Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans and the Dallas Cowboys. The Buccaneers is looking the more likely option not just because he is visiting them today, but because their Head Coach is Lovie Smith.

Smith was the Bears Head Coach from 2004 to 2012 and was the one who brought Jennings to the NFC North team in 2010. In 2012 during Smith’s last year with the Bears, Jennings earned his first Pro Bowl appearance, and was the NFL’s interceptions leader.

If Jennings was to join the Buccaneers, he would also be reunited with their defensive coordinator Leslie Frazer, who was the defensive backs coach in the 2006 season with the Indianapolis Colts whilst he was at the team.

It is likely Jennings would eventually earn the starting job alongside Alterraun Verner at the cornerback position if he was to sign for the team. He would be a huge boost to a secondary that finished 28 in the league last season overall.
