The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced two roster moves Wednesday, re-signing safety Kalvin Pearson and releasing offensive tackle Chris Colmer.

Pearson has recorded 56 career tackles and two passes defensed in 35 career games.

Although he’s only started one game on defense during his pro career, Pearson has established himself as a special teams standout by recording 40 career tackles. In 2005, Pearson led the Bucs in special teams takedowns with 25.

Colmer, who originally entered the NFL in 2005 as a third-round draft pick out of North Carolina State, was released Wednesday after he failed the team physical exam.

The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Colmer spent the entire 2005 season on the Reserve-Non-Football Injury list due to a nerve condition known as Parsonage-Turner Syndrome. It is the same nerve condition that caused him to miss the entire 2003 season at N.C. State.
