Roy Miller exited via free agency for the Jacksonville Jaguars but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made an addition that just might fill the void.

The Bucs have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Derek Landri. According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the contract is worth $3.25 million, so Landri did better than many of the veterans who have been getting deals done in the last week-plus.

Landri started seven games last season for the Philadelphia Eagles and previously played in Carolina and Jacksonville. Landri started 16 games for the Panthers in 2010 but he’s more of a rotational player. The Bucs could look to augment the position via the draft as well.
