In addition to losing wide receiver Joe Jurevicius, who signed a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also lost linebacker Keith Burns, who re-signed with the Denver Broncos after a one-year hiatus.
Burns, a 12th-year veteran, signed with the Bucs as a free agent last year. He was a backup on defense, but excelled on special teams, recording a team-high 23 tackles and forcing one fumble.
Burns is the seventh player to leave the Bucs via free agency since Mar. 2. Guards Cosey Coleman (Cleveland) and Matt O’Dwyer (Green Bay), safety Dwight Smith, quarterback Brad Johnson (Minnesota), defensive tackle Chartric Darby (Seattle) and Jurevicius have all signed with new teams.
