Buccaneers sign outside linebacker


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

Tackles: 229
Sacks: 17
Forced fumbles: 10
Fumble recoveries: 3
INTs: 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).
