Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday signed former Oakland Raiders offensive lineman Matt Stinchcomb to a two-year contract, and re-signed free agent tight end Rickey Dudley.
A first round draft choice of the Oakland Raiders in 1999, the 6-foot-6, 310- pound Stinchcomb is extremely versatile, with the ability to play all five offensive line positions.
He played in six games for the Raiders in 2003, starting four, before being placed on injured reserve on November 12. He had missed only three games in his previous three seasons.
Stinchcomb will be reunited with Tampa head coach Jon Gruden, who was the Oakland head coach through the 2001 campaign.
"Matt is another versatile addition to our offensive line," said Gruden. "We are excited about what he will bring to the Buccaneers."
Dudley, who was released before last season after suffering an ankle injury, only to be re-signed on November 11, has signed with the Bucs three times in the last 18 months.
He caught seven passes in 2003 for 42 yards and a touchdown, and has 23 receptions and four touchdowns for Tampa Bay over the past two seasons.
Since breaking into the NFL with Oakland in 1996, the 31-year-old Dudley has posted 218 catches for 2,976 yards and 33 touchdowns over 105 games with the Raiders, Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay.
