The Buccaneers and Eagles free-agent defensive tackle Derek Landri have come to terms on a two-year, $3.25 million contract,  Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reported Saturday.

Landri (6-2, 290) gives the Buccaneers another option at tackle after starter Roy Miller signed with Jacksonville in free agency. The 29-year-old lineman recorded 18 tackles in 16 games a season ago for Philadelphia (seven starts).

According to Pro Football Focus, Landri played 496 snaps for the Eagles in 2012, grading out better as a pass rusher than against the run.

Landri, a Notre Dame product, is entering his seventh NFL season. He has racked up 121 tackles and eight sacks. In addition to two seasons in Philadelphia, he has had stints with Jacksonville (2007-2009) and Carolina (2009-2010).

    Say what you want. Philly players are bailing on the big talking head coach.

    Last player please turn off the lights.
