The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Friday that they have placed DE Adrian Clayborn on season-ending injured reserve due to a bicep’s injury.
- ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Buccaneers have re-signed DE Scott Solomon to take Clayborn’s place.
Clayborn, 25, is in the final year of his rookie contract and will make $1,494,567 for the 2014 season. Tampa Bay elected to not pick up his fifth-year option, which means he will likely test the open market next March.
Last year, he appeared in all 16 games for Tampa Bay and totaled 64 tackles, six sacks and two forced fumbles.
However, Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 47 defensive end in a 4-3 system out of 52 qualifying players. According to their rating, Clayborn was one of the worst pass-rushing 4-3 defensive ends.
