The Buccaneers resigned 4 players today from their 2014 roster. Those 4 players were safety Major Wright, defensive end Larry English, tight end Luke Stocker, and linebacker Jason Williams.

Major Wright played in 12 games for the Buccaneers in 2014 and started 7. He played 504 defensive snaps and 81 special teams snaps registering 35 tackles, 16 assists, and one pass defensed for an average of one play every 11.25 snaps. That places him 8th out of 33 on defense for productivity.

Larry English played in 12 games and started 1 for the Bucs in 2014. He played 254 defensive snaps and 109 special teams snaps registering 7 tackles, 5 assists, 1 sack, and 1 forced fumble for an average of one play every 25.93 snaps. That places him 28th out of 33 on defense for productivity.

Luke Stocker has been with the Buccaneers since 2011 and ammassed 35 receptions for 298 yards and 1 touchdown. He has played in 45 games for the Buccaneers and started in 29. He filled in for the fullback position in 2014 when Javorski Lane was injured. While his reception numbers are not high, his utilization is more for blocking. Stocker is a good blocker.

Jason Williams played in 3 games for the Buccaneers in 2014. He played 29 defensive snaps and 50 special teams snaps registering 5 tacklesĀ and 2 assists for an average of one play every 11.29 snaps. That places him 9th out of 33 defensive players for productivity.

With free agency beginning on Tuesday, March 10th, 6 members of the Buccaneers 2014 roster are unrestricted free agents eligible to sign with any team. Those six players are Mason Foster, Adrian Clayborn, Da’Quan Bowers, Dane Fletcher, Oneil Cousins, and Lawrence Sidbury.
