Bucs Franchise Barth, Re-Sign Zuttah

The Tampa Bay Bucs have placed their franchise tag on kicker Connor Barth. Barth has been a solid kicker for the Bucs, connecting on 26 out of 28 attempts last season. For you non-math geniuses, that’s about 93%. This was a relatively good move by the Bucs because Barth may want a huge contract in the near future. That being said, Connor Barth may be worth it because as previously stated, he’s been a consistent kicker for the Bucs.

The Bucs also re-signed Jeremy Zuttah to a four-year contract. The terms of the new deal were not disclosed. Zuttah went to Rutgers, where Greg Schiano was the head coach. Again, a solid move by the Buccaneers. Zuttah is a young, versatile player with some potential. Zuttah usually plays either guard or center, but can probably play tackle as well. In 2011, Zuttah started 14 games, and was a consistent blocker on the offensive line. He has a lot of upside, and he’s still young, which makes this a good re-signing.
