The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed wide receiver Yamon Figurs and released backup linebacker Matt McCoy on Tuesday.
Terms of the deal with Figurs weren't disclosed.
Figurs, waived by the Detroit Lions on Sept. 10, gives the Bucs depth behind starting wide receivers Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton and backups Sammie Stroughter, Maurice Stovall and Brian Clark. However, Figurs is mostly known as a special-teamer. As a rookie, Figurs became the first Baltimore Ravens player to return a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns in the same season.
McCoy, a five-year NFL veteran, played in four games with one start for Tampa Bay this season and made one tackle.
The Bucs also added offensive lineman Marc Dile to their practice squad Tuesday. Wide receiver Pat Carter and defensive tackle Rashaad Duncan were released from the practice squad.
