Bucs sign new longsnapper, release old one; Brian Price just fine?

Despite not making any mistakes as a snapper on Sunday and throughout the preseason, the Bucs have released longsnapper Christian Yount and signed longsnapper Scott Albrittonper Anwar Richardson. Veteran longsnapper Andrew Economos remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list after suffering an offseason Achilles injury, and is not eligible to return until Week six at the earliest.

Meanwhile, the Bucs signed linebacker Ross Homan to their practice squad while releasing linebacker Derrell Smith. The Bucs had been very complimentary of Smith during the preseason, so this move is pretty surprising. Homan was drafted in the sixth-round by the Vikings this year. 

In addition, the Bucs worked out a whole slew of prospects. According to the St. Petersburg Times, the Bucs worked out two nose tackles in Travis Ivey and Johnny Jones, center Jake Kirkpatrick, offensive tackles Chris Riley and Phil Trautwein and defensive tackle Jay Ross. None of them have any real NFL experience. 

Finally, the Tribune reports that Brian Price is just fine and was cramping up on Sunday. It's a bit odd that cramps lead to a 'day-to-day' injury classification, though. Whatever the case, it seems Price is ready to return to the field on Sunday. He looked pretty good against the Detroit Lions, so hopefully he can continue to progress throughout the season.
