In a depth-building transaction, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former Houston Texans safety Troy Nolan today.
Nolan's arrival prompted the Buccaneers to cut offensive guard Jeff Olson just two days after he joined the team. They activated linebacker Markus White from the physically unable to perform list.
Nolan is a sizable safety at 6-foot-2, 202 pounds who played in eight games last season, including stints with the Texans, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears.
The former Texans seventh-round draft pick has registered 93 career tackles and three interceptions in 38 games and seven starts.
This seems like a solid move for Tampa Bay.
