Kevin Ogletree Signs With Tampa Bay

Ogletree spent four seasons with the Cowboys after coming into the league in 2009



    Kevin Ogletree is now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

    Ogletree and the Bucs finalized a one-year deal on Thursday that will reunite him with former Cowboys tight ends coach / passing game coordinator and current Tampa Bay receivers coach (not to mention brother of Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett) John Garrett.

    Ogletree, who came to Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2009, caught 32 passes in 2012, for 436 yards and four touchdowns--all career highs--while serving as the team’s No. 3 receiver. The year before, he was in the running for the No. 3 spot but eventually lost out to Laurent Robinson. Ogletree finished 2011 with just 15 catches and no touchdowns.

    Tight end John Phillips, a fellow University of Virginia alum who came into the league with Ogletree in 2009, left Dallas for a four-year deal with the San Diego Chargers earlier in the week.
