Buccaneers sign linebacker Damaso Munoz

Todd Korol

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed a CFL linebacker for the offseason.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed linebacker Damaso Munoz, a former Rutgers player who spent the past three years with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. Munoz put up three sacks and 88 tackles last year.

The 27-year-old is a Miami native who tried out for the Bucs earlier this week, according to TSN. Munoz played will linebacker in Canada, but he'll presumably have to make his mark on special teams to be considered for the regular season roster with the Buccaneers.

The Bucs do need a couple of linebackers, with Dekoda Watson, Jonathan Casillas and Adam Hayward set to hit free agency. They lack depth at the position and don't currently have a starting strongside linebacker, though that has never been a position of importance for the Buccaneers, nor for Lovie Smith. The lack of depth could give Munoz an opportunity to make the roster, though he's most likely just a training camp body.
