The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the signing of defensive tackle Jibreel Black and the re-signing of cornerback Anthony Gaitor. The 6'2", 278 lbs. Black is an undrafted free agent of the University of Michigan who, as far as I can tell, did not sign with any team earlier this offseason.

Gaitor will be more familiar to Bucs fans, as the team's much-hyped seventh-round pick in 2011. Injuries and size have prevented him from making an impact in the NFL so far, and he was cut at the end of preseason last year. At 5'10", 182 lbs. he'll likely have to compete with Leonard Johnson, Quinton Pointer and Danny Gorrer for a slot cornerback position.

To make room on the roster the Bucs waived running back Brendan Bigelow and wide receiver Quintin Payton. Bigelow was an undrafted free agent out of Jeff Tedford's University of California, but didn't have much of a shot at a roster spot given the team's rather loaded running back group. Payton was an undrafted free agent out of NC State who didn't do much to stand out this offseason.

These four transactions bring the Bucs to a total of 84 roster moves since hiring Lovie Smith. Churn churn churn.
