The Buccaneers are apparently having quite the cattle call today, and it’s not just the bus full of unemployed kickers rolling in.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Bucs are hosting former Bears pass-rusher Lamarr Houston today.

Houston was released with an injury settlement, and worked out for the Saints and Patriots in recent weeks.

Heh had 8.0 sacks in 2015 with the Bears, but injuries kept him from delivering on the contract they gave him.

  1. Houston was a three-technique who somehow, for some reason, got the billing as a pass rusher. The only reason he ever put up average numbers was because he was on two teams (Raiders/Bears) who had so few options that even he was the best choice.

  2. Being a bucs fan is painful some times….you just KNOW they are going to cut Folk, so what are they waiting for??!!?. If they had cut Folk Friday and signed a another kicker, the new guy would have had 9 days to practice with he holder. But no, they are going to drag this thing out and give a new kicker maybe 2 days to practice. I blame the Gm for this mess….we could have had Elliot the Eagles kicker, Butker the Chiefs kicker, heck even the Novack the Chargers kicker. What r they waiting for ??????

  3. Houston was kinda good in college and semi-decent in the pros. If he is healthy he probably will be helpful for the Bucs anemic pass rush.

  4. Forget him…….either ineffective or injured. After many games of ineffective play he tore up his knee celebrating a sack in garbage time.
