The six-time Superbowl champion agreed to a deal with the team “in principle” on last week. He expected to undergo a physical with the team Thursday and Tampa Bay was able to agree to have it be done by a doctor in New York.
Free-agent contracts and trades agreed upon won’t become official until players can undergo physicals and sign their new deals. The league barred travel to team facilities by free agents and also banned team personnel from traveling to meet with players as a safeguard against the coronavirus pandemic.
