Bucs re-signed DE Lawrence Sidbury.

Sidbury, 29, spent the summer with the Bucs before being part of final cuts. The former fourth-rounder of the Falcons will provide depth to an ailing line.

Buccaneers re-signed DE Lawrence Sidbury.

A 2009 fourth-round pick of the Falcons, Sidbury has earned playing time in just one game of the past two years. He'll compete for a roster spot.
Mar 9 - 4:54 PM

Bucs signed DE Lawrence Sidbury.

Sidbury was a 2009 fourth-round pick of the Falcons. He racked up five sacks across 48 career games with Atlanta from 2009-2012. He didn't play at all in 2013 or the first 15 weeks of 2014. Sidbury will bring up the rear of Tampa'a bench.

Texans signed OLB Lawrence Sidbury to a one-year contract.

A 2009 fourth-round pick of the Falcons, Sidbury spent all last season on injured reserve. He should provide depth behind starters Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus, with an outside shot at making the 53-man roster.

Colts placed OLB Lawrence Sidbury (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

A 2009 fourth-round pick of the Falcons, Sidbury is shaping up as a journeyman. His injury helps impressive UDFA Caesar Rayford's odds of making the 53.

Colts signed DE/OLB Lawrence Sidbury, formerly of the Falcons.

27-year-old Sidbury was never given much of an opportunity across four seasons in Atlanta, though he showed some explosive rush ability at Richmond. Perhaps he'll be better as a stand-up linebacker in Indy's 3-4. Sidbury goes 6-foot-3, 261. Thus far, he has five career sacks in 47 games (zero starts).

Free agent DE Lawrence Sidbury said re-signing with the Falcons is not an option.

"No, it’s not a place you would stick around considering what took place the previous year in your fourth year," said Sidbury’s agent. A year after notching four sacks in limited 2011 action, he played just 31 defensive snaps. Sidbury, 27, could have some untapped pass-rush potential.

Falcons declared DE Lawrence Sidbury, DT Trey Lewis, TE Michael Palmer, OT Garrett Reynolds, OG Mike Johnson, RB Antone Simth, CB Dominique Franks, and QB John Parker Wilson inactive for Week 12 against the Packers.

Sidbury started last week with John Abraham inactive, but the Falcons' top pass rusher is back this week.
Sun, Nov 28, 2010 11:43:00 AM

Falcons coach Mike Smith said he anticipates second-year DE Lawrence Sidbury making a big step forward this season.

Sidbury, a fourth-round pick in 2009, will get more snaps with Jamaal Anderson ticketed for a swing tackle/end role. He played in just 25 percent of the defensive snaps for the Falcons as a rookie and recorded only one sack.
Sun, May 9, 2010 03:43:00 PM

Falcons rookie defensive end Lawrence Sidbury had two sacks in the team's second exhibition game.

The fourth-round pick probably only played 20 or so snaps, so this is pretty impressive. Sidbury has a very high ceiling as a pass rusher. He needs to become a more complete player to threaten for a starting job.
Sun, Aug 23, 2009 02:51:00 PM

Falcons signed fourth-round DE Lawrence Sidbury to a four-year contract, including a $441,000 signing bonus.

It was surprising to see a marquee pass rusher (11.5 sacks as a senior) with rare speed (Combine-best 4.64 forty) last to draft pick No. 125. But at 6'2/266, Sidbury is a bit of a 'tweener and no 3-4 teams saw him as a fit at outside 'backer. He'll push Kroy Biermann to be Atlanta's nickel end right away.
