The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to be the NFC South’s most active team this offseason.

On Friday, the Buccaneers traded wide receiver Arrelious Benn and a seventh-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for a sixth-round pick this year and a conditional pick in 2014.

A second-round pick in 2010, Benn never has played up to his potential. Mike Williams, a fourth-round pick in the same draft, has emerged as Tampa Bay’s No. 2 receiver. Benn had only four catches in eight games last year before suffering a season-ending injury. He also dealt with injuries as a rookie.

Also on Friday, defensive tackle Roy Miller, who started 14 games last season, signed a two-year deal with Jacksonville. The Bucs have Gerald McCoy as one starter at defensive tackle and Gary Gibson is a reliable backup. But Tampa Bay likely will have to find another defensive tackle in the draft or free agency.
