Buccaneers re-sign Andrew Economos, Jacob Cutrera

US PRESSWIRE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the re-signing of two special teams standouts in linebacker Jacob Cutrera and longsnapper Andrew Economos. Cutrera was signed off the Jaguars' practice squad in 2011 and has played 16 games for the Buccaneers since then, solely as a special teamer. Economos has been the team's longsnapper since 2006 and there have never been any complaints about his abilities.

Economos does face some competition from Andrew DePaola, a former Rutgers player who was signed as a longsnapper earlier this offseason. Cutrera may also act as competition for the strongside linebacker position, where Adam Hayward, Dekoda Watson, Najee Goode and Jonathan Casillas are expected to compete for the starting job after Quincy Black was released earlier this offseason.

For all the attention the lack of new cornerbacks has gotten, the Buccaneers have done a good job of building and adding cheap, young depth this offseason and providing for, as they like to say, competition at every position.
