Bucs re-signed restricted free agent DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim to a one-year, $1.323 million contract.
Te'o-Nesheim was thrust into the starting lineup at right end in Week 3 after Adrian Clayborn's season-ending ACL tear, and the soon-to-be 26-year-old went on to rack up 40 tackles and four sacks. He's best suited for a reserve role. Mon, Apr 15, 2013 06:41:00 PM

Buccaneers assigned the original-pick tender to restricted free agent DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim.

It's good business by the Bucs. Te'o-Nesheim posted four sacks last season, but is better suited to a nickel or dime pass-rushing role, and no team is going to try to sign him at the third-round compensation price. Te'o-Nesheim was the 86th pick in the 2010 draft. He'll be a solid bet for a roster spot in Tampa.

The Bucs may consider tendering restricted free agent DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim at the first-round level this offseason.

That would mean teams would have to give up a first-round pick in order to sign Te'o-Nesheim. He was thrust into the starting lineup at right end in Week 3 after Adrian Clayborn was lost for the season with a knee injury and racked up 40 tackles and four sacks. With LE Michael Bennett slated for free agency, Te'o-Nesheim will compete with Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers for snaps, but the Bucs need to find some pass rush help.

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim is expected to take over as the Bucs' starting right defensive end with Adrian Clayborn (knee) out for the season.

A third-round bust by the Eagles back in 2010, Te'o-Nesheim is a major downgrade from Clayborn. At just 263 pounds to Clayborn's 280, Te'o-Nesheim can be exploited in the run game.

Buccaneers signed DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim off the Eagles' practice squad.

The No. 86 pick in the 2010 draft failed to make the Eagles' roster in September after a disappointing rookie season. With underwhelming size and speed, Te'o-Nesheim projects as no more than a situational pass rusher in Tampa.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman acknowledges that 2010 third-round DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim's rookie season was "obviously a disappointment."

"He loves to play, but he has to take another step," said Roseman. Te'o-Nesheim started training camp last year with the first-team nickel defense, but he saw just 38 snaps all before the meaningless season finale.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane is already calling 2010 third-round DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim a "bust."

McLane concedes that it's a "bit presumptuous" to trash a player with just one year of experience, but Te'o-Nesheim has shown nothing to engender hope. His only game with regular playing time was the meaningless Week 17 finale, and he failed to impress.

Eagles declared third QB Mike Kafka (3rd QB), WR Chad Hall, DB Trevor Lindley, DB Jorrick Calvin, DL Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, T Austin Howard, G Reggie Wells, TE Garrett Mills.

No surprises here. LeSean McCoy (shoulder) is active as expected, as is Nate Allen (neck). The Eagles are going into the Sunday night tilt with the Giants pretty healthy.

Eagles signed third-round DL Daniel Te'o-Nesheim to a four-year contract, including a $740,000 signing bonus.

An undersized if explosive pass rusher, Te'o-Nesheim led the Washington Huskies in sacks (11) and fumble recoveries (2) last season while popping loose an impressive five forced fumbles. In Philadelphia, Te'o-Nesheim is ticketed for inside blitzing duties in the nickel. It's Darren Howard's old role.

Scout.com's Adam Caplan predicts third-round pick Daniel Te'o-Nesheim's primary role will be at tackle in the Eagles' nickel defense.

It's Darren Howard's old role. At 6'3/263, Te'o-Nesheim would be too small for a defensive tackle in most schemes, but the Eagles are willing to use undersized rushers on the interior. We'd expect a marginal year-one impact.

Eagles selected Washington DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim with the No. 86 pick in the 2010 draft.

A four-year starter in the Pac-10, Te'o-Nesheim was a productive college pass rusher with underwhelming size and speed numbers. Though he's a try-hard player, Te'o-Nesheim will struggle against NFL tackles. He'll start out on special teams for the Eagles.
