Report: White signs with Lions
The Bucs need Simeon Rice now more than ever.
Defensive end Dewayne White signed a five-year, $29-million contract with the Detroit Lions Saturday, according to the NFL.com.
White, who had five sacks last season, will be reunited with Lions coach Rod Marinelli, the Bucs former defensive line coach.
The Bucs are banking on Rice recovering from shoulder surgery that forced him to go on injured reserve after just eight games and two sacks last season.
