The Buccaneers continued their onslaught on the free agent market, as they try to rebuild an offensive line taken apart piece by piece.

The latest addition was Packers free agent offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith, the team announced Friday afternoon.

While he won’t have to worry about being stomped by Ndamukong Suh twice a year, he will have to buy a new wardrobe after changing bays.

Dietrich-Smith can play either inside position, and the Bucs still have holes across the line. Signing left tackle Anthony Collins was a good start, but they released veteran guard Davin Joseph and tackle Donald Penn and there are still questions about the future of Carl Nicks.
