The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have signed guard Patrick Omameh from the San Francisco 49ers practice squad.
Omameh (6-4, 305), is a rookie who signed with San Francisco as a college free agent this past offseason. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Omameh played collegiately at Michigan, starting 41-of-45 games for the Wolverines, including every game his final three years. Omameh earned All-Big Ten honors in 2012. He will wear No. 66.
The move adds depth to a position that has seen injuries Carl Nicks and Gabe Carimi.
