Haynesworth lands in Tampa

By ESPNBoston.com

Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth has been claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports.

The Buccaneers are in need of defensive-line help after the season-ending biceps injury to Gerald McCoy. On Tuesday, Tampa Bay also signed defensive tackle John McCargo.

McCoy, a second-year defensive tackle, was placed on injured reserve Monday after tearing his right biceps during the opening quarter of a 27-16 loss to New Orleans that dropped the Bucs (4-4) into third place in the NFC South. McCoy had just returned to the lineup after sitting out the previous two games because on an ankle injury.
