The Buccaneers haven’t rested on their free-agency haul from the first few days of this year’s frenzy.

The team has announced, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, a one-year deal with veteran guard Oniel Cousins.

Cousins started four games in 2013 and appeared in all 16, during his third season with the Browns.  Before that, he spent three years with the Ravens.  He has 59 career appearances and nine career starts.

He becomes the latest new player to join the Buccaneers this week.  Others include cornerback Alterraun Verner, quarterback Josh McCown, tackle Anthony Collins, tight end Brandon Myers, defensive tackle Clinton McDonald, defensive end Michael Johnson, and center Evan Dietrich-Smith.

    Oneil ‘Turnstile’ Cousins

    He was a bigger turnstile than Tony Pashos They can keep him. Good riddance. Sad how someone that big can block so terribly.

    As a Ravens fan, I dont know how this guy is still in the league.

    Oniel Cousins grunts as he pass blocks, and if you listen closely you can here “OLE'”

    It’s astonishing this guy is still in the league

    As a Browns fan, I don’t know how this guy is still in the league.

    Hey, if you want to see how your #4 QB performs, then play Cousins, because it’s only a matter of time before the first three QBs get killed.

    Please take him! How is he still in the league, dude sucks!

    living in baltimore & watching the games since its local that guy could be a backup turnstile at the stadium in case one stopped working. he was brutal

    Bucs fan here, this hurt my eyes and brain to see, literally. Cousins is sooooo garbage. I beleive its simply a camp body, won’t be making the roster.

  13. mymanmccoy says: Mar 16, 2014 2:24 PM

    You seriously cannot even consider him depth. This guy is so bad I cannot believe he was even picked up. I think the Browns actually just forgot he was on the team this offseason. Just wow?

  14. Ed Bandell says: Mar 16, 2014 2:38 PM

    This guy was a pet project for the Ravens when they drafted him. He was a former defensive lineman with hardly any experience playing the offensive line.

    The Ravens thought he was big enough, strong enough, and mean enough to be a body engulfing road grader like Mulitallo was here before he got old and broke down. That never happened. The guy has no pass blocking ability and was also a hot head that would get penalties.

    Since he’s not so great at o-line, at this point in his career, why not try to get him back on the O-line as a DT/NT type?

  15. NoobTubeTV says: Mar 16, 2014 2:42 PM

    He is GARBAGE… Tampa fans should be pissed that their FO is even CONSIDERING him.

    Easily cost the Browns 2-3 Wins… Yes – an OLman.

  16. duncanisland says: Mar 16, 2014 2:55 PM

    Being a Browns fan, I have to say the Bucs must be extremely desperate to bring this guy in, let alone even consider him!

  17. panamajimmy54 says: Mar 16, 2014 3:24 PM

    Cleveland fans believe he had dirt on the last 2 owners that kept him around as long as it did Good Riddance

  18. prohippietalk says: Mar 16, 2014 3:28 PM

    With Oneill gone, the Browns keep getting better and better.

  19. logicaldawg says: Mar 16, 2014 4:10 PM

    Too bad. I was hoping another team from the AFC North would bring him in.

  20. billetproof says: Mar 16, 2014 7:04 PM

    DID they even watch his film? or… did they say , hey we need a lineman, the Clowns have a good right side… lets get him NOW!! , I would not suggest investing is a qb jersey any time in the future..LOL

  21. 14asports says: Mar 16, 2014 8:06 PM

    I’m a Tampa fan and I have no idea who this guy is. Sounds like the Cleveland faithful are giving him a GRRRRRRRRRREAT endorsement…..

  22. sean222 says: Mar 17, 2014 12:48 AM

    No joke. I was really hoping the Ravens would have signed him in return for letting Kreuger go. It is only fair.

  23. squealersarelosers says: Mar 17, 2014 7:41 AM

    Tampa fans, you’re QB is in grave danger when Oniel Olé Cousins is playing! Enjoy!

  24. torpedo8 says: Mar 17, 2014 2:50 PM

    Surprised Tampa Bay didn’t take Weeden as well in a package deal. Have they not watched TV in the last 2 years?
