The Buccaneers have brought in some competition for Jacob Schum.
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, Tampa Bay agreed to a one-year deal Tuesday with former Jaguars punter Bryan Anger.
Anger, a third-round pick in 2012, the highest selection for a punter since Todd Sauerbrun in 1995, played collegiately at California where he was a three-time All Pac-12 First-Team punter.
In 2012, his first season in Jacksonville, Anger was voted to the All-Rookie Team by ESPN, CBS Sports and Pro Football Writers of America. For his career, Anger’s punted 360 times, including 113 inside the 20, with a net average of 46.8 yards.
By comparison, Schum, playing his first NFL season on an active roster last year, punted 55 times with a net average of 42.2. After spending time on the Browns’ and Jets’ practice squads, Schum beat out former Bucs punter Michael Koenen before Week 1 and went on to have a solid first season as a starter. He’ll likely be given an opportunity to compete with Anger in training camp to try to reclaim his role in 2016.
