The Bucs announced today they have signed offensive tackle Mike Ingersoll, one of Bucs special assistant Butch Davis' former players at the University of North Carolina.
To make room on the roster, Tampa Bay released linebacker Antonio Leak.
Ingersoll, 6-5 and 300 pounds, entered the league last year but failed to the make the Chiefs' final roster as a rookie free agent. He later joined the Bucs' practice squad late in the season, giving the organization a chance to evaluate him. He found a place on the Patriots' roster earlier this offseason but was released this week.
