The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally signed a free agent from another team! Adam Schefter, of ESPN.com is reporting via twitter the Bucs have agreed to terms with punter Michael Koenen, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons on a 6-year deal. Of course it’s not the splash must fans had hoped for. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The addition of Koenen will help the Bucs special teams play and ability to pin opponents deep in their own territory.

The Bucs were looking to upgrade the position and add competition.
