Tampa Bay announced that its starting safety has been shipped to the St. Louis Rams ahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that St. Louis will send Tampa a fourth-rounder and sixth-rounder in return, per a source involved in the deal.
Rapoport noted Tuesday morning that the Bucs were open to moving Barron, the No. 7 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, who racked up just three interceptions over 37 starts on the heels of a stellar career at Alabama. The backstop -- ranked No. 66 at his position by Pro Football Focus -- hasn't lived up to his pedigree.
