The Buccaneers signed seventh-round pick Erik Lorig to a four-year contract.
Lorig, a defensive end from Stanford, likely will contribute mostly on special teams this season if he makes the 53-man roster.
In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Lorig is an "all-out, energetic base end who leaves everything on the field and has enough disruptive ability to hold down a roster spot and bring value in the locker room with his intangibles."
Tampa Bay also announced it released S Emanuel Cook and LS Chris Mauriello.
