It looks like the Bucs have picked up the 5th year option on Vita Vea.  The 2018 first round DL missed a lot of the 2020 Super Bowl season because of a fractured left ankle he suffered in week 5.

The 6-foot-4, 347 lb Vea has totaled 73 tackles and 7.5 sacks,  in his 34 games played in his career (29 starts).
