Buccaneers claim DT Corvey Irvin, G Cody Wallace; presumably release Wallace Gilberry, Bradley Sowell

After claiming guard Julian Vandervelde earlier today, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have continued their roster moves. Using the high waiver priority the team obtained by being absolutely awful during the final 10 games of last season, the Bucs have claimed guard Cody Wallace and defensive tackle Corvey Irvin off waivers. Defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry and tackle Bradley Sowell were presumably released to make room for these additions, as the two were escorted off the field during practice earlier today.

Irvin was a 2009 third-round pick for the Carolina Panthers in 2009, but he spent last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The defensive tackle has played just 6 games in his career and his production consists of 5 total tackles and no sacks, so I wouldn't expect him to do much. At 27, he isn't a young player still developing, either. Meanwhile, Wallace was a fourth-round pick for the San Francisco 49ers in 2008 and has spent the past two seasons with the Houston Texans. He has played all of 1 game in his career, which happened in 2009 with the 49ers. Again: don't expect much.

The Bucs will likely continue to churn the bottom of their roster the next couple of days, bringing in new guys to see if they could possibly contribute. The Bucs need to find quality depth along the offensive line and at defensive tackle, especially.
