Buccaneers Free Agency 2012: Jeremy Zuttah Will Re-Sign With Tampa Bay

We haven't quite reached open NFL Free Agency yet, but the Bucs appear ready to make a move that will help solidify their offensive line. According to the Tampa Bay Times via our Tampa Bay blog Bucs Nation, the team is poised to re-sign backup Jeremy Zuttah. Here is Bucs Nation on how Zuttah will be able to help the team in 2012.

Re-signing Zuttah gives the Bucs a valuable backup who can play multiple positions on the offensive line, and Zuttah could be the long-term starter at center if the team lets current starter Jeff Faine leave. If the Bucs do not cut Faine, Zuttah could still end up as the starter at left guard, although he's not as effective at that position.

The Bucs might need to make some more moves if they plan to improve their offensive line, but Zuttah is a valuable and versatile backup who knows the system, and that is an important piece to have as well.
