Demaryius Thomas is just one player ready for a breakout season in 2012.

The 26-year-old who was second in the NFL in field goal percentage last season was designated the team's franchise player in March. Barth converted 26 of 28 attempts in 2011, including 15 straight to end the year.

Since joining the Bucs in 2009, Barth is 63 of 75 on field goal attempts and 71 of 71 on extra points. He is the only kicker in club history who has made three field goals of 50-plus yards in one game.

The Bucs on Thursday also announced the signings of receivers Wallace Wright and Armahd Lewis. Tackle Mike Ingersoll and tight end Tyler Urban were waived.
