    Bucs to sign Chris Owusu off Chargers practice squad
    Posted by Josh Alper on September 20, 2012, 6:43 PM EDT
    The Buccaneers have made two moves at wide receiver already this week, but it seems that they aren’t done adding to the group of players at the position.

    Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the team will sign wide receiver Chris Owusu off of the Chargers’ practice squad. The move could be officially announced as early as Thursday night.

    Owusu was one of Andrew Luck’s favorite targets at Stanford, but he had his final collegiate season cut short by concussions. Concerns about those injuries helped Owusu slide out of the draft and he wound up on San Diego’s practice squad after former college coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t keep him on the 49ers this summer. If Owusu does wind up on the Bucs, he’ll have to remain on the 53-man roster for three weeks.

    The Buccaneers are expected to place wide receiver Sammie Stroughter on injured reserve to make room for Owusu on the roster. He hurt his foot in the loss to the Giants.

    In the last few days, the Buccaneers have brought back two players they cut this summer — Jordan Shipley and Tiquan Underwood — while cutting loose Preston Parker in a bid to make over their receiving corps on the fly. There’s not much settled behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, so all three players should have a good chance of earning playing time in the weeks to come.
