Free agent defensive tackle Sealver Siliga visited the Buccaneers this week, reports Jenna Laine of ESPN.com. Siliga has been available to sign anywhere since the Seahawks reached an injury settlement with him Sept. 2, but the Bucs are the only team that has shown public interest in him this month.
Siliga, 26, joined the Seahawks on a one-year, $1.4MM deal featuring $250K in guarantees back in March. He spent the previous three years in New England, where he started in 13 of 25 regular-season appearances and was part of a team that beat the Seahawks in the Super Bowl to conclude the 2013-14 campaign. For his career, which also includes a one-game appearance with the Broncos in 2012, Siliga has totaled 96 tackles, 5.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
As of now, the Buccaneers currently have four options at defensive tackle, as Roster Resource shows. Star Gerald McCoy and Clinton McDonald start, while Akeem Spence and DaVonte Lambert are Tampa Bay’s reserves. Spence collected 17 snaps in the Bucs’ Week 1 win over the Falcons. Lambert was inactive.
