Watford has a history with the many of the coaching staff, including Bruce Arians, during his time in Arizona. This signing is another small move to shore up key holes on the team as they head full on into the draft.
In his last season with the Cardinals, he spent time at both guard positions. In the event of injury, Watford could be key with his versatility and play where needed to fill holes.
This morning the Buccaneers announced via Twitter they have come to terms with Watford.
We have agreed to terms with OL Earl Watford.
