Buccaneers re-sign Major Wright, Larry English and Jason Williams

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a re-signing spree. After inking tight end Luke Stocker earlier today, they've now re-signed defensive end Larry English, safety Major Wright and linebacker Jason Williams. That per Roy CummingsJoe Bucs Fan and Ian Rapoport, respectively.

Williams was primarily a special teamer, and that's presumably what the Bucs re-signed the former Carolina Panther for. Major Wright ended up starting half the season at safety, and while he isn't a special player, his familiarity with the team's system is a major asset. Finally, English was a useful backup pass rusher who made more of an impact than most of the team's defensive ends.

In re-signing all these backups, the Bucs are making sure they won't lack any depth this year. But none of them fill any pressing needs, either.
