The Saints hosted free agent FB Erik Lorig this week.

The Saints currently have no fullbacks on the roster after declining to tender RFA Jed Collins. Lorig offers more versatility as a receiver than Collins.
Sun, Mar 16, 2014 03:25:00 PM

The Bucs reportedly hope to re-sign free agent FB Erik Lorig.

The news comes via a series of glowing tweets from CBS' Jason La Canfora, who almost certainly has the ear of Lorig's agent. La Canfora expects "several" teams to be interested. Going on 28, Lorig was just the No. 19 fullback in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season, so it's not as if there's going to be a bidding war. Lorig will struggle for guaranteed money, as all fullbacks do.

ESPN's John Clayton expects the Bucs to re-sign free agent FB Erik Lorig.

Lorig was the Bucs' primary lead blocker this past season and graded out as the No. 19 fullback by Pro Football Focus. He shouldn't require more than a non-guaranteed, one-year contract.
Sat, Feb 22, 2014 05:20:00 PM

Bucs FB Erik Lorig will make his season debut Sunday after missing Week 1 with a calf injury.

Lorig's Week 1 absence may have played a role in Doug Martin's inability to find running lanes against the Jets; the Buccaneers often employ Lorig as a lead blocker in the I-formation. Lorig also chips in on special teams. Expect a bounce-back game from Martin against the talent-deficient Saints defense.
Fri, Sep 13, 2013 05:21:00 PM

Bucs FB Erik Lorig's 2013 salary jumped from $575,000 to $1 million based on rookie-deal incentives.

Lorig has appeared in all 32 games over the past two seasons, starting 14 of them. He's never carried the ball, but he does have 19 career catches for 146 yards and a touchdown. Lorig will return for the final year of his deal to be Doug Martin's lead blocker.
Thu, Jan 31, 2013 02:13:00 AM

The Bucs have moved Erik Lorig to fullback on a permanent basis.

A seventh-round pick in the 2010 draft, Lorig dabbled at both defensive end and tight end as a rookie. The Bucs have one of the fullest fullback depth charts in the league, with Earnest Graham and Rendrick Taylor also at the position. Lorig will have to show special teams value to make the 2011 roster.
Fri, Mar 18, 2011 03:47:00 PM

Rookie Erik Lorig will get the start at fullback in place of injured Earnest Graham (hamstring) for the Buccaneers in Week 9.

The converted defensive end does not have a track record at fullback, so it will be interesting to see how he adjusts to the position. He has the size and skill-set to catch some balls out of the backfield, but he isn't a factor in fantasy.
Sat, Nov 6, 2010 12:21:00 PM

Buccaneers TE/FB Erik Lorig has made a full-time switch to offense.

Lorig is also capable of playing defensive end, but the Bucs want him to focus on offense. He isn't a factor in fantasy.
Mon, Oct 4, 2010 01:11:00 PM

Buccaneers signed TE Erik Lorig off their practice squad.

Capable of playing both tight end and defensive end, Lorig will offer the Bucs some versatility.
Tue, Sep 28, 2010 10:02:00 AM

Bucs waived DE Erik Lorig.

Lorig was let go to make room on the roster for the return of Aqib Talib, who was activated from suspension. Lorig, a seventh-rounder this year, is capable of playing both defensive end and tight end.
Tue, Sep 14, 2010 05:00:00 PM

Bucs signed seventh-round DE Erik Lorig to a four-year contract.

Lorig has been sidelined in spring practices with a pectoral injury. Coach Raheem Morris has referred to him as a "luxury player," as he's capable of playing both tight end and defensive end. The Bucs expect him to be healthy and competing for a roster spot in training camp.
Fri, Jun 18, 2010 11:28:00 AM

The Bucs haven't ruled out the possibility of using seventh-round DE Erik Lorig at tight end.

Lorig was a Parade All-American tight end in high school and played the position as a freshman at Stanford. Listed at 6'4/281 now, he'd be a blocker. Versatility can only help Lorig's chances of making the team, although he'll have to recover from a pectoral injury first.
Thu, May 6, 2010 10:54:00 AM

Bucs seventh-round pick Erik Lorig is not participating in minicamp due to a pectoral injury.

Lorig, a defensive end out of Stanford, obviously needs to get healthy to have any shot of making the team. He could spend the year on injured reserve.
