Bucs Ink OLB Quincy Black to a Five-Year Deal

The Buccaneers have reached a five-year deal with outside linebacker Quincy Black, Adam Caplan of reports.

According to Caplan, the deal is worth $29 million and includes $11.5 million in guaranteed money.

A 2007 third-round pick (68th overall) out of the University of New Mexico, Black (6-2, 240) spent two years as a reserve before moving into the starting lineup in 2009. During his 58-game career, Black has 189 tackles, 3.5 quarterback sacks and a pair of interceptions.

Black has 145 tackles, 3.5 quarterback sacks, and a pair of interceptions in 23 starts over the past two seasons.

Black’s extension could spell the end of Barrett Ruud’s tenure with the Buccaneers. Ruud has led the team in tackles the last four seasons, but the team is high on Tyrone McKenzie and used a 2011 third-round pick on former University of Washington linebacker Mason Foster.
