Buccaneers To Re-Sign DT Sealver Siliga

The Buccaneers have agreed to re-sign defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, according to
Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times (Twitter link). It’s a one-year deal, tweets Sealver SiligaSiliga’s agency.

Tampa Bay claimed Siliga off waivers last November after he was waived by the Seahawks. In six games with the Bucs, the 27-year-old compiled five tackles and one sack. Between 2014 and 2015, Siliga started nine games (in 20 appearances) for the Patriots, collecting 60 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Last offseason, the defensive tackle earned a one-year, $1.4MM ($250K guaranteed) contract from Seattle.

Siliga will presumably compete with Clinton McDonald to be the primary substitute for starting defensive tackles Gerald McCoy and Chris Baker.
