The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday announced that they have re-signed defensive end Larry English and waived defensive end Steven Means. English will wear No. 57.
Means was a fifth-round draft pick out of Buffalo in 2013 and played in 11 games over the last two seasons, notching just nine tackles. Means was part of the defensive line rotation on Sunday against Carolina that managed just one sack of Panthers backup quarterback Derek Anderson.
The team also announced that cornerback C.J. Wilson has been signed to the practice squad. Wilson (5-11, 187) entered the NFL as a college free agent with the Chicago Bears in 2013, playing in two games with the team last season. He spent this offseason and preseason with Chicago, before being waived in the team’s final cuts. Wilson played collegiately at North Carolina State and will wear No. 41 for the Buccaneers.
