Bucs waive veteran G Keydrick Vincent

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived guard Keydrick Vincent and

promoted tackle Will Barker from the practice squad to the active


Vincent is a 10th-year pro who signed with the Bucs as a free

agent in July. He started the first five games of the season, then

sat out last week’s win over St. Louis because of back spasms.

The 32-year-old Vincent was the second oldest player on the

roster. Rookie Ted Larsen filled in at left guard last week, and

Jeremy Zuttah is another young offensive lineman the Bucs are

comfortable with using at the position.

Barker entered the NFL this year as an undrafted free agent with

Dallas. He was signed to Tampa Bay’s practice squad after being

released by the Cowboys.
