Bucs Add LB Cutrera

A special teams standout as a rookie in 2010, former Jaguar Jacob Cutrera could help immediately in that phase of the game and patch a linebacking corps recently hit by injuries

As a rookie with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, linebacker Jacob Cutrera was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster in October. A year later, Cutrera is getting a similar promotion, though this time it involves a small relocation downstate.

On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have signed Cutrera off Jacksonville’s practice squad and to their own 53-man roster. The Buccaneers had a roster spot open after placing safety Devin Holland on injured reserve on Monday.

Any player on an NFL practice squad has the right at any time to terminate his contract and sign with another team, as long as he is being signed to the active roster by the new team. That player must then remain on his new club’s active roster for at least three weeks.

The 6-3, 238-pound Cutrera first entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in Jacksonville in 2010, following a standout four-year collegiate career at Louisiana State. He actually shuttled between the Jaguars’ active roster and practice squad on several occasions during his rookie campaign before ending up on injured reserve due to a concussion. This season, he has been on Jacksonville’s practice squad since being waived on the final roster cutdown in early September.

Tampa Bay’s linebacking corps was also left a little thin in San Francisco, with
Quincy Black (ankle) and Zac Diles (hamstring) both out due to injury. Dekoda Watson took over Black’s starting spot on the strong side, leaving the team with just one active LB reserve, Adam Hayward

These numbers are completely inaccurate. Shanle is always double teamed and constantly fighting to get to the ball. The tackles that shown are hard fought tackles.
