The Facts: The Buccaneers claimed kicker Elliott Fry waivers from the Panthers, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Diehards Line: The team was later awarded Fry officially. Fry had previously been with the Bears and Ravens last season before signing a futures contract with the Panthers. This was not unexpected. The Bucs have said they planned to bring in some competition for Matt Gay, their fifth-round draft pick last year.
