Buccaneers add DE Trevor Scott

August, 20, 2013
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added a veteran presence to their young group of defensive ends.

The team announced Tuesday morning that it has signed Trevor Scott. He played for New England last season and spent the previous four seasons with the Oakland Raiders. Scott had three sacks last season and has 16.5 for his career.

The Bucs have Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers as their likely starters at defensive end. But coach Greg Schiano has said several times that Bowers needs to show more consistency if he’s going to be an every-down player.

I think the Bucs still have high hopes for Bowers. But Scott gives them an experienced alternative and he could land a spot in the rotation.
