Bucs re-signed S Troy Nolan
Tampa waived Nolan last week after signing him in late-July. Nolan started seven games for the Texans between 2010-12, and appeared in eight games last season between the Texans, Dolphins, and Bears. Nolan is a long shot for the Bucs' final safety spot, and is essentially a camp body.

The 2009 seventh-rounder appeared in eight games between the Bears, Dolphins and Texans last season. Nolan made seven starts for Houston between 2010-12. He'll compete for the Bucs' final safety spot and a role on special teams, but is likely just a camp body.

Dolphins claimed S Troy Nolan off waivers from the Texans.
A former seventh-round pick, Nolan appeared in 30 games for the Texans the past two seasons, making 84 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three picks. He could see heavy snaps as the Dolphins revamp their secondary on the fly.

Texans S Troy Nolan was forced to take a pay cut from $1.308 million all the way down to $540,000 in order to keep his roster spot.
Nolan did receive a $110,000 "signing" bonus to make up some of the difference, but ultimately the pay cut cost him $658,000. The $540K salary is also not guaranteed, so the Texans could pull the plug on Nolan after training camp if he's outplayed by Torri Williams or Quintin Demps. Nolan held up well in three spot starts last season, but cost too much for a clear-cut backup.
