The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed running back D.J. Ware a day after he was cut by the New York Giants, the team announced Saturday.
The New Jersey Star-Ledger reported that Ware chose the Buccaneers over the Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks.
Ware adds depth to a Buccaneers backfield that includes 2012 first-round draft pick Doug Martin and LeGarrette Blount.
Also, Tampa Bay claimed defensive tackle Corvey Irvin, guard Julian Vandervelde and offensive lineman Cody Wallace off waivers and released defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry and guard Bradley Sowell.
