The Buccaneers outside linebacking unit took a hit this weekend. Carl Nassib (groin) and rookie Anthony Nelson (hamstring) are both questionable for Sunday’s game against Arizona. To fill that void the Buccaneers signed Sam Acho (OLB) to a 1 year deal today.
Acho was originally drafted in 2011 (4th rd) by Arizona and played 2 years under Bruce Arians. Acho has played for the Bills and Bears since leaving the Cardinals in 2014.
Sam Acho Stats
Forced fumbles: 10
Fumble recoveries: 3
Tight end Antony Auclair was put on injured reserve with a toe injury. His season is done. The Buccaneers also waived Amara Darboh (WR).
