The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed kicker Connor Barth one day after releasing rookie Kyle Brindza.
The Buccaneers announced the move Tuesday morning on their official Twitter account.
Barth, 29, had a previous stint with the Bucs, making 91 of 108 field-goal attempts and all 110 extra points from 2009 to 2012. He began his career with the Chiefs in 2008, and he also played for the Broncos last season.
The Bucs signed Barth on Aug. 27 to a two-year deal to compete for the kicking job late in the preseason after he was released by the Broncos. But Brindza won the job after being acquired by Tampa Bay in a trade with the Lions, prompting the Bucs to release Barth on Sept. 5.

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.
