Buccaneers sign DE Trevor Scott - Bucs Nation
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the signing of defensive end Trevor Scott, formerly an Oakland Raider and New England Patriot. The 6'5", 256 lbs pass rusher entered the league as a sixth-round pick out of Buffalo in 2008 for the Oakland Raiders.

After spending two years as a tight end in Buffalo Scott was moved to the defensive line by Turner Gill and he never looked back. Among the Bulls Scott's name is still in the top ten all time for sacks and tackles for loss, and he did it in two seasons.

Scott was a late round draft pick by the Raiders and after being moved to an elephant back slot Scott became a very effective pass rusher. He was on a tear until he was injured a few years ago. Scott has recuperated his knee but has not managed to get back onto the field as a starter.

In his role as pass rush specialist Trevor has collected 16.5 sacks in five years in the NFL. He notched 7 sacks at outside linebacker in 2009 for the Oakland Raiders, but managed just three sacks the past two years with the Raiders and Patriots.

Scott is competing with Steven Means, another UB Bull but their may be enough room on the roster for both players. Tampa has not seen the production from that they expected from Da'Quan Bowers. It's hugely unlikely that Bowers does not make the team but even then if the tandem of Scott and Steven Means can outshine William Gholston and Aaron Morgan the pair of UB Alumni might both stay in Tampa.
