Wearing his favorite Brett Favre jersey to meet the team officials of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, unrestricted free agent offensive guard Keydrick Vincent happily received his fifth contract in his NFL career. According to reports, the Buccaneers have signed the tenth-year veteran to a two-year contact after releasing another unrestricted free agent Sergio Render.
At age 32, Vincent had previously split his first nine NFL seasons with four different teams: the Carolina Panthers, the Arizona Cardinals, the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. Being the starting right guard with the Panthers for the last two seasons, Vincent led the team’s ground attack to rank the third in the league. With his help, the Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Steward were both able to rush for more than 1,000 yards in the same season.
Now in his 10th NFL season, Vincent impressed the Buccaneers with a great resume, which includes starting 79 of 97 played games with four different games. That could be why the Buccaneers valued him more than Render and finally decided to sign him but cut Render.
