Buccaneers re-sign defensive end Lawrence Sidbury

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed defensive end Lawrence Sidbury, the team announced today. Sidbury is a six-year veteran who played in one game for the Bucs last year, after signing mid-season. I can't remember him doing anything to stand out and he doesn't exactly have an illustrious career, but he does have some experience and is at minimum useful on an offseason roster.

The Bucs also officially announced the re-signings of Larry English, Luke Stocker and Jason Williams. English, Williams and Sidbury all signed one-year deals, probably for close to veteran minimum with not a lot of (if any) guaranteed money, given their careers so far.

Stocker, however, signed a three-year contract -- signalling a pretty strong commitment to the blocking tight end. Or at least an intention to make him a long-term part of the team. Stocker was a quality in-line blocker and even played well when used as a fullback last season, so that's likely to be his role going forward.
