Buccaneers add competition at kicker

By Pat Yasinskas

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to show they’re serious about having competition at just about every position.

The latest example of that came Tuesday. The Bucs have signed veteran kicker Nate Kaeding, according to the Tampa Tribune’s Roy Cummings.

Kaeding spent two games last season with the Miami Dolphins. Prior to that, he had been with the San Diego Chargers since 2004.

Tampa Bay already has one of the best young kickers in the NFL in Connor Barth and it’s likely he’ll keep the job. But a little competition can’t hurt. The Bucs followed the same theory when they signed punter Chas Henry to compete with Michael Koenen and they’re taking a similar approach at other positions.
