The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a few roter moves today. The biggest one was signing Spencer Larsen, who has played both fullback and linebacker in the NFL. He spent last season with the New England Patriots but never appeared in a game. He was with the Denver Broncos for four years before that, starting 15 games, six of them at linebacker and 11 at fullback. He should compete with Erik Lorig for the starting fullback spot.
The Buccaneers also signed three other players in undrafted rookie cornerback Mason Robinson out of Rutgers, OL Jeff Olson out of TCU in his first year in the NFL and WR Bobby Sewall out of Brown who spent the past years in the Arena League. None of these players is likely to be more than a training camp body, although Mason Robinson may have a shot as a punt returner.
To make room for these players the Buccaneers waived safety Nick Saenz and recently signed guard Jeremy Lewis. The Bucs also placed wide receiver Jerry Johnson on the exempt/left squad list, which makes him the first player to walk out in this year's training camp.
