The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued to slowly reel in draft picks as they announced that seventh-round selection Erik Lorig has signed a four-year contract.
The defensive end was a three-year starter at Stanford and a co-captain for the Cardinal. He made 16 ½ sacks during his career and has a battle ahead of him to carve out a roster spot on a defense the Bucs are trying to revamp with youth, starting with defensive tackles Gerald McCoy and Brian Price.
Adding Lorig wasn’t the only transaction in Tampa. The Bucs also announced that safety Emanuel Cook and long snapper Chris Mauriello have walked the plank. Both players were placed on waivers.
