10:48am: In addition to confirming the signing of Lane, Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com tweets that the team has also inked former Jets fullback Josh Baker to a deal. Lane and Baker will likely compete for the fullback roster spot vacated by Erik Lorig.
9:47am: Former Dolphins fullback Jorvorskie Lane has signed with the Buccaneers, according to agent David Canter (via Twitter). Terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed, but it’ll likely be a minimum salary pact, giving Lane a chance to earn a roster spot.
Lane, 27, appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins in 2012, logging 307 offensive snaps and playing a little on special teams as well. However, he didn’t earn a spot on the team’s regular season roster in 2013, and was cut last August. In 2012, Lane recorded 13 carries, primarily in short-yardage situations, and caught 11 passes out of the backfield.
