TAMPA – The Buccaneers have been on the lookout for a place kicker to give Connor Barth some competition ever since veteran Nate Kaeding retired in May and finally it seems they have one.

Following a workout at One Buc Place on Tuesday the Bucs signed former University of Illinois kicker Derek Dimke.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Dimke originally entered the league as a college free agent with the Detroit Lions in 2012, appearing in three preseason games and going 2-foi-2 on field goal tries and 3-for-3 on extra points.

To make room on their roster for Dimke the Bucs waived former University of South Florida tight end Evan Landi.
