The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Monday that they have signed fullback Lonnie Pryor and defensive end George Uko to the practice squad.
Pryor (6-0, 224) comes to Tampa Bay after spending the first five weeks of the season on the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad. Pryor was signed to Tampa Bay’s active roster in 2013 and was inactive for six games on the season. He also spent the 2014 offseason and preseason with the team, before being waived on August 29.
Uko (6-3, 284) originally entered the league this season as a college free agent with the New Orleans Saints. Uko, who played collegiately at USC, spent the 2014 offseason and preseason with New Orleans, before being waived on August 26.
The team also announced they have released wide receiver Kevin Cone and running back Jeff Demps from the practice squad.

Next week, Bucs bring Demps back to the practice squad, release Pryer.
now that’s what I call shaken up the roster ? !!
And this is what is a problem for me. I’m all for searching out better players to improve the overall roster. But Jason Licht seems to make transactions for the sake of making them.
