Walker released; A New Lineman Being Pursued
Tackle Kenyatta Walker was released by the Bucs Thursday.
The former first-round pick from Florida spent most of last year on injured reserve with a season-ending knee injury. The Bucs plan to go with Jeremy Trueblood at right tackle, the team's second-round pick from Boston College.
Free agency begins tonight at 12:01 a.m., and the Bucs may make an immediate splash. One of the players they have set their sights on is Cincinnati G/T Eric Steinbach. The four-year veteran has started 62 of 63 games in his career, and his ability to play two positions would make him a key addition for the Bucs. But there likely will be competition for Steinbach, one of the more coveted offensive linemen available in free agency.
