Bruce Arians is a straight shooter.
On Thursday, Arians admitted the team would be interested in free-agent running back Devonta Freeman.
"If his price tag was reasonable," Arians said, according to Jon Ledyard of Pewter Report. "He's asking for a lot of money and we don't have a lot of money."
The Buccaneers could use a veteran running back to complement their explosive passing game. However, Tampa Bay has $4.8 million in cap space, according to Over The Cap. The Seattle Seahawks were reportedly interested in Freeman but ended up signing Carlos Hyde to a one-year, $4-million contract.
Freeman is reportedly willing to sit out the 2020 season if he doesn't receive an offer that reflects his own evaluation of his worth.
The 28-year-old addressed the situation Thursday evening on Twitter.
