After being among the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ last roster cuts at the end of August, the Bucs have now brought defensive end Larry English back.

To make room for the signing, Tampa Bay waived defensive end Steven Means.

English played in three preseason games with the Bucs and registered four tackles and two sacks.

The Bucs managed just one sack in their season opening loss to the Carolina Panthers so they could be looking for English to spice up their pass rush.

The former first rounder had spent his entire career with the San Diego Chargers and recorded 91 tackles and 11 sacks in 52 games.

Means played in Sunday’s loss and had a tackle. He was a fifth round picks by the Bucs in the 2013 draft.

Tampa Bay also announced that they have signed cornerback C.J. Wilson to their practice squad. He played in two games with the Chicago Bears last season.
