Tampa Bay Buccaneers re-sign DE Tim Crowder, sign K Jacob Rogers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed DE Tim Crowder to a two-year contract. Crowder has been a solid backup and occasional starter for the Bucs these past two years, gathering 6.5 sacks during that time. He was originally drafted in the second round by the Denver Broncos in 2007. The 26-year old adds some experience and reliability to an inexperienced, young defensive line.

The Bucs also signed undrafted rookie kicker Jake Rogers out of Cincinnati. He wasn't all that accurate during his college career, making just 51 kicks on 75 attempts. He will compete with Connor Barth, but don't expect him to threaten to make the roster.

To make room for Tim Crowder, Jake Rogers and QB Jonathan Crompton the Bucs released DT Doug Worthington, T Quintin Borders and K Josh Jasper. Borders and Jasper were both undrafted rookies, while Worthington was a second-year player who spent last year on the Bucs' practice squad.
