K NUGENT RELEASED

 

 

The Buccaneers announced today that they have signed K Shane Andrus. In addition, the team released CB Marcus Hamilton and K Mike Nugent.

Andrus entered the league as a free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006. He played in one game for the Colts in 2009, handling kickoff duties in their season opener against Jacksonville. Andrus led Indianapolis with 19 points during the 2009 preseason, connecting on 5-of-6 field goal attempts and all four PATs.

Hamilton was signed by Tampa Bay on September 23 and played in one game for the Buccaneers this season. Nugent, who signed with Tampa Bay on March 4, played in each of the first four games in 2009.

 

I decided to go over to BigBlueStampede and this is a comment I found about our new kicker...

"Andrus has been magnificent in camp and pre-season. If you are reading this and you are NOT a Colts fan (and your favorite team is desperate for a quality kicker), look no further than Shane Andrus. He hasn't missed a kick yet in pre-season, and his kick-offs have been consistently good."

Of course the Colts needed Andrus while Vinatieri was healing.
