Bucs Sign RB Taylor To Practice Squad

November 19 – Tampa Bay signed running back Tony Taylor to its five-man practice squad on Tuesday afternoon. In order to make room for the second-year running back on its practice squad, the Buccaneers released center/guard Jason Scukanec.

Tampa Bay signed second-year running back Tony Taylor to its five-man practice squad on Tuesday afternoon. The move comes one week after the Buccaneers placed rookie RB Travis Stephens (dislocated toe) on the injured reserve.

Taylor (5-foot-9, 191-pounds) split time between Dallas' practice squad and active roster in 2001. He originally entered the National Football League as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern State (LA). He finished his college career as Northwestern State's all-time leading rusher with 3,720 yards and 30 touchdowns in four years.

In order to make room for Taylor, the Bucs released center/guard Jason Scukanec, who had spent the last three weeks on the Pewter Pirates' practice squad.
