Ex-USF DE Selvie expected to sign with Bucs



Former USF defensive end George Selvie, a two-time All-American with the Bulls, is expected to sign with the Bucs on Tuesday as a free agent.

Selvie, 26, has 42 tackles in three NFL seasons -- one with the Rams, then briefly with the Panthers and most of the last two with the Jaguars, including 15 tackles in 2012. He has three career sacks, including one last season.

Selvie, now 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds, was a national star when USF rose to No. 2 in the national rankings in 2007, earning consensus All-America honors after totaling 14.5 sacks and an NCAA-high 31.5 tackles for loss. He remains USF's only two-time All-American and was drafted by the Rams in the seventh round in 2010.

At defensive end, the Bucs lost free agent Michael Bennett, who signed with the Seahawks, and Selvie should help provide depth for Tampa Bay's pass rush.
