T Torrin Tucker started 10 games at left tackle for the Cowboys last year after opening 13 at right tackle in 2004
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed offensive tackle Torrin Tucker, a restricted free agent, to an offer sheet.
Tucker, who has played for the Dallas Cowboys the past three seasons, became a restricted free agent on March 11. He was thus free to negotiate a contract with any team but the Cowboys retained a right-of-first-refusal by extending a tender offer to Tucker at the beginning of free agency. As such, Dallas has up to one week to determine whether or not they will match the Buccaneers' offer and retain Tucker at the terms outlined in the contract he signed on Thursday.
The 6-6, 315-pound Tucker has started 24 games for the Cowboys, including 10 last season at left tackle. In 2004, he started 13 games at right tackle.
