Tampa Bay Buccaneers free agent guard Matt O’Dwyer signed a one-year contract with the Green Bay Packers Tuesday.
According to ESPN, O’Dwyer, 32, signed a deal that is worth the veteran league minimum and included a $25,000 signing bonus.
A 10-year veteran, O’Dwyer signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent last year. He was projected to earn a starting job before tearing a pectoral muscle during a freak weight-lifting accident that sidelined him for nearly the entire regular season. He appeared in four games and had no starts.
O’Dwyer is the fifth player to leave the Bucs since the free-agent signing period began on Mar. 2. Defensive tackle Chartric Darby (Seattle), safety Dwight Smith (New Orleans), quarterback Brad Johnson (Minnesota) and G Cosey Coleman (Cleveland), all of whom were starters at some point last season, have signed with new teams.
