Mark Dominik has officially made his first free agent signing as Tampa Bay's new general manager.

After re-signing quarterback Luke McCown, wide receiver Michael Clayton, defensive tackle Ryan Sims and safety Will Allen earlier, Dominik tapped into another resource Monday to sign Denver Broncos free agent linebacker Niko Koutouvides.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Koutouvides, 27, was a player on Tampa Bay's radar last offseason when he was a free agent with the Seattle Seahawks. Denver outbid Tampa Bay for his services, but his stint with the Broncos proved to be short-lived after his release last month.

The 6-foot-2, 238-pound Koutouvides has played in 73 career games since entering the league with Seattle as a fourth-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft.

While he has some starting experience on defense (started two games for Seattle as a rookie), Koutouvides' biggest contributions have come on special teams, where he has notched 69 career tackles.

The Bucs have also expressed interest in several other free agents, including Buffalo free agent LB Angelo Crowell. The Bucs also met with Buffalo cornerback Jabari Greer on Monday and are scheduled to meet with New York Giants running back Derrick Ward on Tuesday.
