ESPN reports that former LSU linebacker Devin White has requested a trade from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

One of the sources told ESPN that White has grown increasingly frustrated with the team and is "fed up." The source did not provide specifics on the root cause of White's frustration, but said he has become very unhappy in his current situation.

Another source told ESPN that White's frustrations stem from negotiations over a new contract.

The Bucs do not want to trade him, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported, but White wants to be traded as he is coming up on his fifth-year option worth $11.7 million, which the team already picked up.

A new multiyear contract for White was the next step, and the expectation was that White would be a core member of the defense for years to come.
White has spent the last four years in Tampa after being selected No. 5 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. He has played in 62 games for the Bucs, recording 483 tackles, 20.5 sacks, six forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries, and one interception.

Cry baby negotiating. I doubt seriously he goes anywhere.

He knows they are tanking for a draft pick. Being on a bad team will hurt his free agency in a year.

Great, he'll probably end up in Atlanta and never be able to cheer for the guy.

The NFL is all about getting with the right team at the right time. If Tom Brady is drafted by the cardinals he doesn’t become tom Brady. I don’t blame white for wanting out.

If he gets drafted by the Saints Bradshaw is not a 4 time Super Bowl champ & in the HOF he is Archie Manning. You are about Tom Brady he would of been cut after 1 year with any team except a Bill Bellichik team
