Former Notre Dame offensive lineman Luke Petigout who was cut by the Giants after suffering through an injury riddled season was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tuesday. The former first round draft pick in 1999 might be joined by a fellow former Golden Domer as well with the Bucs trying to sign Jordan Black as well.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took the first step toward revamping their offensive line on Tuesday, signing unrestricted free agent tackle Luke Petitgout to a three-year, $15.5 million contract.
Tampa Bay officials also initiated talks with another unrestricted tackle, Jordan Black of Kansas City, and hope to complete a deal with him as well.
Released by the New York Giants two weeks ago, in part for salary cap reasons and because of the team’s desire to move guard David Diehl to tackle, Petitgout figures to step right into the starting left tackle spot in Tampa Bay. The position has long been a problem area for the Bucs and coaches are confident Petitgout can solidify it. (ESPN)
