Tampa, FL – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have swapped long snappers, signing Scott Albritton to replace Christian Yount.
Albritton, out of Colorado State, was signed by Houston as an undrafted free agent in August, but was released in the final wave of cuts. Yount was also a rookie free agent from UCLA.
The Bucs' regular long snapper, Andrew Economos, is on the physically unable to perform list because of an Achilles injury. He had handled the duties for the past four seasons, but is not eligible to return until at least after the sixth week of the campaign.
