Connor Barth is returning to Tampa.
A mere hours after being released by the Broncos, Barth agreed to terms with the Buccaneers on a two-year deal, the team announced Wednesday. The deal is for a maximum value of $2.75 million, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of his decision.
Barth kicked for the Bucs from 2009 to 2013, drawing the franchise tag in 2012. One of the most accurate kickers of the past half-decade, Barth has drilled 85.3 percent of his field goals and 100 percent of his extra points. Patrick Murray was slated to be the Bucs kicker before this transaction.

With Brandon McManus struggling during the middle part of last season, Connor Barth was signed by the Broncos and did a superb job. In the final five regular season games, Barth was 15-of-16 on FG attempts, including two games in which he made five FGs. In Denver’s explosive offense, he averaged 12 points per contest. He has connected on over 85 percent of his field goal attempts during his career. Connor was four-of-five from 44+ in ’14 and is 13-for-20 lifetime from beyond 50.
Barth doesn’t have one of the strongest kicking legs in the league. His longest FG last season was 50 yards and in his career he’s just 77 percent (53-69) from beyond 40 yards.
The Broncos offense scored 56 TDs last season and attempted 29 field goals. The team will continue to be one of the top point scorers in the NFL. Connor should get plenty of scoring chances each week and is listed as a top-five fantasy kicker.
