This news comes as no surprise. According to ProFootball Talk, it sounds as though the Tampa Bay Bucs were never serious suitors for Nnamdi Asomugha:
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Bucs aren’t, and haven’t been, in the hunt for Asomugha. …
Though there’s a chance it was all a smokescreen, it’s more likely that the Bucs are being bandied about because they’ve got the cash. Which in turn could drive up the price.
As we mentioned last night, the Nnamdi/Bucs rumors never made a lot of sense. The Bucs have expressly stated that they intend to build through the draft, depending on a core of young players, and Nnamdi is already 30 years old. He also will come at a very steep price tag, and while the Bucs have cap space, they have been very hesitant to sign expensive free agents.
