To fill the vacant roster spot that was created when safety and special teams contributor Devin Holland was placed on injured reserve, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed linebacker Jacob Cutrera, who was on the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad.
Cutrera spent the first five weeks of the 2011 season on the Jaguars practice squad after spending half of last year on Jacksonville's active roster. In 2010, he appeared in eight games for the Jaguars, primarily on special teams, where he recorded six special teams tackles. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent for the Jaguars in 2010 following a four-year career at LSU in which he recorded 172 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, one sack, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and three passes defensed.
Cutrera will be helping Tampa Bay on special teams. The Bucs now have seven linebackers on the team – Mason Foster, Geno Hayes, Quincy Black, Dekoda Watson, Adam Hayward, Zac Diles and Cutrera.
