Moments after the press conference of new signees Henry Melton and Chris Conte, fullback Jorvorskie Lane has agreed to a one-year deal that will keep him in Tampa, per Greg Auman. The Buccaneers also have a scheduled visit with free agent cornerback Sterling Moore.
Lane, 28, signed with the team last offseason but suffered a broken bone in his lower right leg in November, sidelining him for the rest of the season. Prior to his injury, Lane was also suspended two games in October for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. It was a mistake he claimed he was ignorant to. Primarily used as a blocker when in, Lane had just three carries for 58 yards in 2014. His biggest play of the season came off his first carry going for 54 yards against Carolina in Week 1.
Moore, 25, was an undrafted free agent out of SMU in 2011. After a brief period on the Raiders practice squad, he went on to play two seasons in New England (2011-2012), starting 14 games before signing with Dallas mid-way through the 2012 season. Moore’s coming off his best season in 2014 where he played in all 16 games with 7 starts, totaling 46 tackles and 12 pass deflections.
