The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the signing of DE Martin Ifedi on Friday. Jenna Laine of ESPN reports that the Buccaneers have placed DE George Johnson on injured reserve with a fractured hip.
Ifedi was re-signed by the Bucs. This is from his scouting report on NFL.com:
Keeps playing until the whistle and works to improve his position. Good arm length. Has ability to get under blockers and drive them into the pocket. Reads run plays and reacts quickly. Makes it hard for linemen to reach-block him. Tough at the point of attack. Plays square to the line of scrimmage with a strong base and strength in hands to shed. Launches into tackles and finishes. Highly intelligent.
His younger brother, Germain, plays offensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks.
