Zuttah and the Bucs Chattling About a New Deal

Reports are the Buccaneers are nearing a deal with offensive lineman Jeremy Zuttah.

“The team wants the player and the player wants the team,” Zuttah’s agent, Noel LaMontagne, said on Monday. “That’s the most important progress you can have. The rest just comes down to dollars and cents.”

Zuttah was a two-time All-Big East selection at Rutgers, where he played under first-year Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano. A third-round pick in 2008, Zuttah has started 44 of his 58 career games, including 16 games in 2009 and 14 in 2011. The 6-foot-4, 308-pound Zuttah is capable of playing all three interior line positions and could be the long-term option at center.

After completing his four-year, $2.419 million contract, Zuttah is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent.
