Bucs re-sign Larry English, Jason Williams and Major Wright

3/7/2015

TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers re-signed three more of their own potential free agents.

Defensive end Larry English, linebacker Jason Williams and safety Major Wright agreed to contract terms Saturday. That came after the Bucs re-signed tight end Luke Stocker earlier in the day.

English was picked up last season and the Bucs liked what they saw. He received playing time as a rotational defensive end and had one sack and 12 tackles in 12 games.

English once was thought of as a potential superstar. He was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2009. But the Chargers never could decide if English belonged at defensive end or linebacker. English gives the Bucs depth behind Michael Johnson and Jacquies Smith. The Bucs still could look for a pass-rusher in free agency or the draft.

Williams provides depth at linebacker and he performed well on special teams last season. Wright played for coach Lovie Smith in Chicago and could be a candidate to start if the team parts ways with Dashon Goldson.
