The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to a one-year deal with outside linebacker Carl Nassib on Monday.
Reserve outside linebacker Cam Gill suffered a Lisfranc injury in the Bucs’ preseason opener Saturday. The team did not re-sign veteran Jason Pierre-Paul this offseason, with 2021 first-round draft pick Joe Tryon-Shoyinka stepping into Pierre-Paul’s starting role.
Along with Anthony Nelson, Nassib can serve in a rotational role for the Bucs, although he did start 17 of 29 games in a previous two-year stint in Tampa (2018-19), registering 12.5 sacks, 20 tackles for a loss, 63 combined tackles, three forced fumbles, two passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Carl Nassib now returns to the team – the Bucs – and the coach – Todd Bowles – under which he once thrived. https://t.co/U5s0rckBjn
