Bucs continue shuffling roster
By Pat Yasinskas
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who seem to have to re-shape their roster because of injuries every week, are at it again.
In sticking with their youth movement, the Bucs just promoted cornerback D.J. Johnson from the practice squad to take the roster spot of Aqib Talib, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.
Johnson had spent some time with the New York Giants earlier this season before being signed to Tampa Bay’s practice squad Nov. 24. To fill Johnson’s spot on the practice squad, the Bucs signed fullback Rendrick Taylor.
He had been with the Bucs in the preseason before being released. Most recently, Taylor had been with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League.
