Zuttah, Vincent To Compete for Buccaneers' LG Job

Head coach Raheem Morris confirms the two offensive lineman will battle for starting spot.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris confirmed that recently signed veteran guard Keydrick Vincent will compete with Jeremy Zuttah for the team's starting left guard job, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports.

The 32-year old Vincent, who started 30 games for the Carolina Panthers over the last two seasons, signed a two-year, $4.5 million dollar contract last Friday, which included base salaries of $1 million dollars in each season, but no guaranteed money.

Cummings adds that the loser of that battle will be the team's "swing guard", backing up at both spots, and that 2009 fifth-round pick Xavier Fulton or Demar Dotson will play left tackle if unsigned restricted free agent offensive tackle Donald Penn holds out.

Davin Joseph is the Buccaneers' starting right guard.
