DT John McCargo signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers apparently decided to sign defensive tackle John McCargo as Gerald McCoy's replacement today, per Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. McCargo was brought in for a try-out today alongside former Buc Jovan Haye, and apparently the Bucs liked McCargo more. 

John McCargo is a former first-round pick for the Buffalo Bills, and he spent part of the preseason with the Buccaneers. I thought he looked decent in his final preseason game. The Bucs could plug him in immediately, which would be a big plus for them.

In related news, Ian Rapoport is reporting that Albert Haynesworth will be released by the New England Patriots. That doesn't say a lot of good things about Haynesworth, but the Bucs should at least contemplate bringing him in. There's no real downside to doing so at this point. But, that won't happen. The Bucs don't bring in 30-year-old reclamation projects. Certainly not those who have been cut twice within one year. 

UPDATE: According to Pewter Report the Bucs also added RB Nic Grinsby and DT Swanson Miller to their practice squad.
