Bucs re-sign USF's Buie, release Schmidt
Three days after he was cut by the Bucs, former USF defensive end Jarriett Buie was re-signed on Tuesday, though he'll still face long odds to survive past Saturday's final roster deadline.
To make room for Buie and a center claimed from the Raiders, the Bucs released two players, including former USF offensive lineman Ryan Schmidt, another undrafted rookie.
Buie said he'll report to practice Wednesday and will be with the team for its preseason finale Friday against Houston. On Saturday, NFL teams must trim their rosters from 75 players to 53, and while Buie is unlikely to make that cut, a strong showing Friday could help his chances of making the team's practice squad.
Former USF offensive lineman Marc Dile, also an undrafted rookie, also remains on the Bucs' roster.
