The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seen plenty of change already this offseason, but general manager Mark Dominik is intent on keeping one familiar face for next season.
2012's notable free agents
Dominik said the team will not let kicker Connor Barth become an unrestricted free agent on March 13.
If the Buccaneers are unable to reach a long-term deal with Barth, they could opt to place the franchise tag on him before the March 5 deadline. The franchise-tag figure for kickers in 2012 is expected to be about $2.65 million.
Barth made 26 of his 28 field goal attempts last season.
