The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Friday that they’ve signed veteran C Josh LeRibeus to a contract.
LeRibeus actually tried out for the Buccaneers during their mandatory minicamp a few weeks ago, so he was clearly on their radar as a potential addition.
Tampa Bay had an open roster spot.
LeRibeus, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract before re-signing with the Redskins.
Washington elected to cut LeRibeus loose at the start of the 2016 season and he wound up sitting out the entire season before signing a futures deal with the Eagles in 2017.
Philadelphia released him following last year’s draft and he managed to catch on with the Saints.
In 2018, LeRibeus appeared in six games for the Saints and made three starts before being placed on injured reserve.
