The Buccaneers have signed rookie DT Al Woods to take the roster spot of Brian Price, who was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday with a season-ending pelvic injury.
Woods was drafted by the Saints in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL draft but was released in September before the start of the season.
The former LSU standout then signed with the Steelers' practice squad, where he remained prior to signing with Tampa Bay.
The way we see it
The Saints saw potential in Woods during the draft, but the rookie hasn't been able to stick on an NFL roster. Woods should get an opportunity on a banged-up Bucs' defensive line that currently ranks 30th against the run.
