Tampa Bay signed Danish kicker Phillip Andersen, who participated in the Michael Husted Kicking Pro Camp in Mobile, Alabama during Senior Bowl week in January, according to Buccaneers.com’s Scott Smith. Husted was a former kicker for the Bucs back in the 1990s under Sam Wyche and Tony Dungy.
Smith writes that “Andersen most recently kicked for the Berlin Rebels of the German Football League and has also played for the Amager Demons, Herlev Rebels and Søllerød Gold Diggers of the Danish American Football Federation, as well as the Berlin Eagles of the GFL. The GFL is the highest level of American football in Germany.”
Andersen is the only kicker the Bucs currently have under contract as Cairo Santos, who connected on 9-of-12 field goals last year after replacing Chandler Catanzaro at midseason, remains unsigned. Tampa Bay has not made a decision yet as to whether to bring back Santos or pursue Bryant.
