Greg Schiano coached Zuttah at Rutgers, and after taking the Buccaneers’ job quickly identified him as a priority for the team to re-sign. Zuttah can play four positions on the line. He started 14 games in 2011, 13 at left guard and one at center.
According to Holder, the Bucs will now turn their focus to free agent kicker Connor Barth. The sides have until Monday’s 4 p.m. franchise tag deadline to negotiate, but Holder expects Barth to be tagged barring a last-minute breakthrough in talks.
