The Bucs just announced they have claimed guard Shawn Murphy off waivers from the Miami Dolphins.

Not much to read into here. The Bucs simply are taking a shot on a guy who was a fourth-round draft pick by Miami last year. They’re sticking with Davin Joseph and Jeremy Zuttah as their starters and they’ve got an experienced interior lineman backing them up in Sean Mahan.

Basically, this means two things: The Bucs aren’t counting on Arron Sears, who’s been away from the team for months while dealing with a private matter, returning. It also means Murphy gets a free trip to London this weekend.
