Buccaneers To Re-Sign Larry English, Major Wright

The Buccaneers have agreed to contracts that will keep pass rusher Larry English and safety Major Wright with the team, reports Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune (via Twitter) and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter).

English was a first-round pick of the Chargers in the 2009 NFL Draft, after taking down the quarterback more than 30 times during his final three collegiate years. His success stopped there, as he struggled with both performance and injury with the team. He was cut before the 2014 season, and signed with the Buccaneers.

Wright was a third-round pick of the Bears in the 2010 NFL Draft, after winning a national championship with the University of Florida. He was inconsistent in Chicago, and signed a one-year deal with the Buccaneers last offseason.

Both English and Wright were cut by the team after signing, but rejoined the Buccaneers in 2014. Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht has now re-signed four players, with English and Wright joining linebacker Jason Williams and tight end Luke Stocker, according to Cummings (via Twitter).
