Bucs sign Jets backup FB



   Mike Alstott has nothing to worry about yet.

   The Bucs signed Jets fullback  B.J. Askew to a two-year contract with the Bucs Saturday, according to his agent Scott Smith. General manager Bruce Allen said the Bucs plan to bring four fullbacks to camp.

   The 6-foot-3, 233-pound Askew played in 55 games with the Jets, starting just six. He has been used primarily as a special teams player.

   The Bucs continue to negotiate with Falcons free agent fullback Justin Griffith.
