NFL Free Agency 2013: Buccaneers sign Kevin Ogletree

Rob Carr

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the signing of wide receiver Kevin Ogletree. The Bucs have a need for a reliable third receiver behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, and Ogletree has shown flashes of ability over the past years. Most significantly, he managed to blow up in week 1 of last year's season for the Dallas Cowboys, going off for 8 catches, 114 yards and two touchdowns on the New York Giants. He got a lot of hype then, but ended the season with a disappointing 32 catches for 436 yards.

Ogletree is likely to compete in training camp with Tiquan Underwood, Chris Owusu, David Douglas and any other receiver the Buccaneers bring in through the draft, or perhaps free agency -- although that is unlikely to happen. The Bucs also still have Arrelious Benn, but they are looking to trade him.

Ogletree is also a potential returner, an area where the Bucs have a big need. He doesn't havea ton of experience as a returner, with just 3 punt returns for 35 yards and 20 kickoff returns for 389 yards, but he certainly could contribute.
