The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added depth to the linebacker position on Tuesday, signing Detroit Lions LB Teddy Lehman.
A former Oklahoma standout, Lehman originally entered the NFL with Detroit as a second-round draft pick in 2004.
Lehman started all 16 games as a rookie, but hasn't started a game since, mostly due to injuries.
The 6-foot-1, 238-pound Lehman has versatility, evidenced by the fact that he has played both inside and outside linebacker and made an impact on special teams in the NFL.
Lehman likely will compete for the right to back up Bucs starting middle linebacker Barrett Ruud in Tampa Bay.
