Buccaneers signing kicker Chandler Catanzaro

The Buccaneers tried finding a kicker by trading up to draft one in the second round, and that didn’t work. So signing one the first day of free agency has to be worth a shot.

According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs are signing Jets free agent Chandler Catanzaro.

Catanzaro hit 25-of-30 field goals for the Jets last year, and he’s a career 84.4 percenter on field goals.

He spent his first three years with the Cardinals.

The Bucs cycled through a number of kickers last year after pulling the plug on the Roberto Aguayo experiment, with Nick Folk and Patrick Murray getting them through the season.

  1. Hopefully this guy can stabilize their kicking situation. It’s been a mess down there since Connor Barth messed up his knee at that charity basketball game so many years ago.

  2. I thought Patrick Murray actually did a nice job last year. I am just so glad that our AC/DC loving GM once again feels that on day one of FA the most important way to improve a 5-11 team with a college rated defense is to go sign a KICKER!!!!! Every frickin day that goes by it is harder and harder to be a Bucs fan!

  3. Again, This is why they are the “Browns” of the NFC…
    That “Bucs life” thing must get old with these type removes!
