TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed veteran kicker Ryan Succop to their roster.
Succop has played in 166 NFL games and attempted nearly 300 field goals. He has been in the NFL for 11 seasons. His first five were with the Kansas City Chiefs and the last six with the Tennessee Titans.
Succop was the final pick of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Chiefs, making him that year's "Mr. Irrelevant," according to the Bucs.
To make room for Succop on the team, the Bucs released their first-year kicker Elliott Fry.
Succop will challenge last year's starter Matt Gay for the Buccaneers' placekicker job in 2020.
