Brandon McDonald re-signed by Buccaneers

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

With Aqib Talib traded away and Eric Wright serving a suspension, the veteran defensive back could see time on the field immediately.

Brandon McDonald appeared in eight games for the Buccaneers before he was let go, but after three consecutive losses, the team elected to re-sign the veteran defensive back on Tuesday.

The move is one that will likely be a minor patch for the struggling Buccaneers secondary, but anything can help the team that ranks last in the league at defending against the pass. After trading cornerback Aqib Talib, the Buccaneers are now dealing with a four-game suspension for Eric Wright, making it possible that McDonald could see the field for Tampa Bay immediately.

After he was released by the Buccaneers, McDonald was signed by the Miami Dolphins, but Miami waived him after he spent only three days on the roster. A fifth-round selection of the Cleveland Browns in 2007, McDonald has recorded nine career interceptions, including one with the Buccaneers in Week 2.

Following a loss in Week 14 to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Buccaneers could be eliminated from the playoffs if not for a win on the road against the Saints in Week 15.
