Bucs signed DE Markus White off their practice squad.

Bucs signed DE Markus White off the team's practice squad.

White takes the roster spot vacated by Aqib Talib's suspension. He appeared in one game with the Redskins earlier this season but failed to register on the stat sheet. White will contribute on special teams if he's active on game days.

Redskins signed OLB Markus White off the Bucs' practice squad.

White was a seventh-round pick by the Redskins in 2011 and appeared in two games as a rookie. But he fell behind Brian Orakpo, Rob Jackson and Chris Wilson this preseason and was released at final cuts. Now that Orakpo (pectoral) is done for the year, White will act as depth at the right outside 'backer spot. Jackson and Wilson are competing for the starting gig.

Redskins agreed to terms with seventh-round OLB Markus White on a four-year contract.

White is converting into a 3-4 outside linebacker after playing as a base, 4-3 end at Florida State. While his workout numbers -- particularly a 4.93 forty at the Combine -- left plenty to be desired, White was a productive pass rusher for the Seminoles. His draft status and the lockout are hurting him, though.

Redskins selected Florida State DE/OLB Markus White with the No. 224 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A long-armed, 6-foot-4, 266-pound pass rusher, White played left defensive end for the 'Noles but will be a 3-4 outside linebacker under Jim Haslett. He racked up eight sacks and 12 tackles for loss as a senior, also forcing a fumble. White doesn't have exceptional long speed, evidenced by his 4.93 forty at the Combine. There also may be some character flags because White bounced around three colleges (Rutgers, Butler CC, and FSU). Regardless, it's a bit surprising he was still available so late in round seven, and is a high-motor defender worth an NFL draft pick.
