The Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought back a familiar face on Tuesday, signing tight end Will Heller to their active roster.
The 6-foot-6, 265-pound originally entered the NFL in 2003 as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech. He played in 19 games with the Bucs from 2003-04, catching 15 passes for 114 yards and three touchdowns.
Heller was released by Tampa Bay on Sept. 4 and immediately claimed off of waivers by the Miami Dolphins. He caught one pass for a 1-yard touchdown with the Dolphins before being released on Nov. 5.
In order to make room for Heller on their 53-man roster, the Bucs released kicker Todd France, who made 1-of-2 field goal attempts while filling in for the injured Matt Bryant.
In other news, the Bucs signed center/guard Jonathan Clinkscale to their practice squad on Tuesday. In order to make room for Clinkscale, the Bucs released TE Steven Farmer.
