Bucs add Trevor Scott for line reinforcement

The effort to light a fire under Da’Quan Bowers continues.

The Buccaneers announced this morning they had signed veteran defensive end Trevor Scott, adding an option to a thin pass-rush group.

Scott had 3.0 sacks for the Patriots last year and has 16.5 in his career (which began with the Raiders).

He’s a solid rotation part for the Bucs, who are trying to push Bowers into becoming more of a player.

While Scott may not be the answer at the position, he can at least serve as a reminder.
