Now that Week One’s in the books, all those fringe veterans who were out of work so teams didn’t have to guarantee their salaries are on their way back.
The Bucs saved themselves some potential bucks by adding veteran fullback Spencer Larsen, who was in camp with them this summer but was released in the cut to 75. The team released rookie defensive tackle Chris Jones to create the roster spot.
Larsen spent four years with the Broncos, and was on the Patriots’ IR list last year.
The move comes after Bucs running back Doug Martin was held to 65 yards on 24 carries against the Jets. The Bucs were playing without starting fullback Erik Lorig and tight end Tom Crabtree because of injuries, so adding Larsen gives them a lead-blocking option.
