Buccaneers release Evan Landi, sign kicker Derek Dimke

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Another day, another roster move.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived former USF tight end Evan Landi after signing him as an undrafted free agent earlier this year. Landi was competing with Danny Noble, Nate Byham and Zach Miller for a roster spot, and seems to have lost out. Luke Stocker and Tom Crabtree are expected to compete for the starting job, while the other four should be aiming for backup jobs.

With their new roster spot, the Buccaneers signed kicker Derek Dimke to give Connor Barth's leg some rest, I guess. Barth's salary is fully guaranteed this season, so any competition is completely meaningless. Dimke at least provides a minor amount of injury protection. The former Illinois player hit 39 of 46 field goals in his college career, and never missed an extra point. He also has a good leg for kickoffs, which are handled by punter Michael Koenen for the Buccaneers.
