English re-signed with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.

English, a 2009 first round pick of the Chargers, was released by the Buccaneers following a preseason that included two sacks last month. However, in light of just one quarterback takedown in Week 1, Tampa Bay has decided to bring back English to add another pass rusher to their setup.

English recorded two sacks off the bench in Saturday's 27-24 win at Buffalo, and is making a strong push to secure one of the team's final roster spots after signing Aug. 14 with Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay Times reporter Greg Auman reports.

English, who was released by the Chargers after recording 11 sacks over five seasons, said he is preparing his body to become a game-changer regardless of where the Buccaneers deploy him. "We've noticed him," Tampa coach Lovie Smith said after the game. "Last week in practice we thought he took steps each day. We have good competition with a few players for some of those last positions on our team."

English has signed with the Buccaneers,

English -- selected by San Diego No. 16 overall in the 2009 draft -- recorded 18 tackles and 2.5 sacks in nine games with the Chargers last season. He'll give the Bucs some added pass-rushing depth out of the outside linebacker slot.

Free agent OLB Larry English visited with the Cowboys on Thursday.

English was released by the Chargers earlier this week. He left his visit with Dallas without a contract and remains unsigned. English played outside linebacker in San Diego's 3-4, but could be an option at defensive end in 4-3 schemes. 28-year-old English has just 11 career sacks since being taken with the 16th overall pick in the 2009 draft.

Chargers released OLB Larry English.

English was the 16th overall pick in the 2009 draft and is not subject to waivers. The 28-year-old has missed 28 games over the past four seasons mostly due to right foot problems. He has 11 career sacks across 52 career games, but has never accumulated more than three in a season. English's roster spot has been in jeopardy the past couple years, and GM Tom Telesco finally cut the cord. He should be able to latch on with another team for the summer.

Chargers OLB Larry English is under contract for $1.54 million in 2014.

It's notable because NFLPA records list English is an unrestricted free agent. He failed to activate a clause in his rookie contract that would've voided English's deal from six years to five, however, and is now signed through 2014. The Chargers could still release English, of course, if they deem him unworthy of a $1.54 million salary. He's managed 11 sacks across 42 career games.

Chargers placed OLB Larry English on injured reserve with a biceps injury, ending his season.

It's yet another blow for a team that's been dropping pass rushers all season. The 2009 first-rounder was not in the midst of a stellar campaign, but had notched 2.5 sacks in nine games. He was a bottom-10 player in Pro Football Focus' 3-4 outside linebacker ratings, however. English will be a free agent in the offseason, so it's quite possible he's played his final snap as a Charger. English has just 11 career sacks in 52 games, and struggled mightily with injuries. He's appeared in only 36 games since the start of the 2010 season.

Chargers OLB Larry English was forced from Sunday's game against the Broncos with a biceps injury, and will not return.

It leaves the Chargers' pass rush perilously thin. English notched a sack before going down, bringing his season total to 2.5.
