Danny Gorrer re-signs with Buccaneers for one year

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed Danny Gorrer to a one-year deal, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. Gorrer was signed during the 2012 season, when the Bucs were literally taking free agents off the street to fill the gaping holes in their secondary. He started one game that season, but struggled a little.

Gorrer managed just seven games last year, and struggled to get and stay on the field and play well. He had several injuries, which seemed to sap his confidence. He had a few too many mental errors, but did show a really good physical skillsets, including a great transition from his backpedal. If the new coaching staff can get him playing with confidence, he should be a good depth player and a possible nickel cornerback.

With Gorrer re-signed, the Bucs still need more quality at the position, though. Assuming they're still planning to either trade or release Darrelle Revis.
