The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed a free agent. LB Niko Koutouvides will join the Bucs, terms of his contract were not released.
The 6-foot-2, 238-pound Koutouvides has played in 73 career games since entering the league with Seattle as a fourth-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft. Koutouvides has been a special teams stand-out wherever he has played, adn this is a role he will likely resume with the Bucs.
Koutouvides, 27, was a player on Tampa Bay's radar last offseason when he was a free agent with the Seattle Seahawks. Denver outbid Tampa Bay for his services, but his stint with the Broncos proved to be short-lived after his release last month.
