Buccaneers bring back Gary Gibson

September, 3, 2013
TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers originally went thin on defensive tackles. But they’re stocking back up that position.

They signed Gary Gibson on Tuesday. Gibson was released by the Bucs on Saturday when the team was carrying only three defensive tackles on its roster. The team later claimed Chris Jones off waivers from Houston. Jones and Gibson will compete for playing time behind Gerald McCoy, Akeem Spence and Derek Landri.

To make room for Gibson, the Bucs placed cornerback Danny Gorrer on injured reserve, but designated him for return. Gorrer recently had groin surgery.
