The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Tuesday that they have re-signed CB Brandon McDonald.

McDonald has appeared in eight games for the Buccaneers this season, recording 20 tackles, one special teams tackle, two passes defensed and one interception.
The team also announced that it has signed DB James Rogers to its practice squad and waived LB Joe Holland from its practice squad.

On Monday Tampa Bay announced that they have placed CB Myron Lewis on Injured Reserve and were awarded G Hayworth Hicks off of waivers from Kansas City.

Since being drafted by the Buccaneers in 2010, Lewis has played in 28 games, with one start, recording 17 tackles, four passes defensed, and three special teams tackles.

The Buccaneers were awarded Hicks off of waivers from Kansas City. Hicks (6-3, 336) entered the league as a college free agent with Indianapolis in 2012, and has spent time on the active roster for the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs this season.

The team also announced that they have waived WR David Gilreath.

    I'd say we've seen the end of Lewis, and A Benn. I.R. again, and have never lived up to their draft status. Same with Sheridan, this head coach will move to get better this off season, whether it's up grading the roster, or coaching staff.

    Someone yelled out “we’ve got screen doors on this submarine”. The answer came back “what we need is better screen”! Welcome aboard McDonald!

    And here we again with the carousel of confusion and musical roster chairs....Jeese I thought they were past this..but will someone explain to me how it was that Mcdonald was cut over Lewis!!?? Honestly, WTF had Lewis done in his 28 games that Mcdonald had not done better in just his 8 games played!?!?! And apparently the coaching staff just caught up to this thinking and were flabbergasted at our redundant secondary collapses?!?! Give me a break...Mcdonald was a solid player for us since week 1 this year...way more solid than Lewis. And I'm sorry but it's more than just a coincidence at this point when Sheridan's first stint as a D-coordinator produced the same results that the Buc's D has this year...LAST in the league in pass defense. That's why the Giants sent him packing...you can't blitz EVERY SINGLE DOWN and hope your 3 to 4 guys you leave out on islands in the backfield can get it done. Utterly Ridiculous. If this defensive roster consisted of the players from the 49'ners roster, he'd be on fire...but at this point the only fire should be the one under his coaching seat.

    I agree with the Bill Sheridan being on the hot seat. I also know there is a Mr. Monte Kiffin available. Heard he was a pretty good defensive coach, legend has it he helped in a big way win that"Superbowl". Maybe the Bucs should take a look at bringing Monte Back? If not coordinator then some other role, he's got a couple years left in the tank. I don't see Butch Davis hanging around after this year so let him fill Butch's roll.

    Now how the hell did he get hurt? I don't even remember him being in the game.
