The NFL free agency period begins at 4 p.m. on Tuesday. That means the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and 31 other teams have only a few precious days left to decide which of their own free agents to bring back and who to pursue — and how much money to spend — when players hit the open market.

The Bucs are about $33 million under the 2013 salary cap of $123 million.

Fifth-year general manager Mark Dominik is in charge of shaping the roster, and there are plenty of needs and variables to consider.

For eight straight days, the Tribune and TBO.com will feature one position each day. We’ll provide an analysis of the position and list the players to consider: Bucs under contract for 2013, plus Bucs and notable NFL players scheduled to become free agents.

So, Bucs fans, what would you do? Now is your chance. You be the GM.
