Buccaneers re-sign CB Brandon McDonald

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed cornerback Brandon McDonald in an attempt to add some depth to the secondary. Myron Lewis was placed on injured reserve yesterday, further weakening an already weak position group, and necessitating the addition of some fresh blood.

Of course, McDonald is hardly fresh blood. The veteran was signed at the start of the season off the street, and immediately became the team's nickel cornerback. After getting burned repeatedly he was released and replaced by Leonard Johnson and Danny Gorrer - but they haven't exactly done much better.

McDonald is unlikely to improve this secondary much, but it's about the only move the Bucs can make at this point in the season. The secondary has been an issue all season long, and it has now all but pushed them out of the playoffs. That's what happens when you start undrafted rookies out of necessity, and trade away your top cornerback.
