The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today signed linebacker Kenny Young to the team's practice squad.

Young spent two calendar years with the Rams prior to being traded from Los Angeles to the Denver Broncos on Oct. 25, 2021, and eventually signing with the Raiders during free agency in 2022.
Over 59 career games, including 25 starts, Young has amassed 186 tackles (16 for loss), 13 quarterback hits, 5.5 sacks, four passes defensed, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one interception and one defensive touchdown, while also contributing nine career tackles on special teams.
