As expected, the Bucs just officially announced the signing of safety Sean Jones to a two-year contract.

This is Tampa Bay’s first significant acquisition of the offseason and Jones immediately should contend for a starting safety spot. The Bucs weren’t pleased with the play of Sabby Piscitelli in his first season as the starter at strong safety.

Jones likely moves instantly ahead of Piscitelli on the depth chart and is the favorite to start opposite Tanard Jackson.

Jones spent last season with Philadelphia and started nine games while making two interceptions. He also led the Eagles with 20 tackles on special teams. Jones came into the league with Cleveland in 2004 and spent his first five seasons with the Browns. He has played in 75 games with 53 starts.
