The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarterback Mike Kafka on Monday, and released tackle Gabe Carimi, running back Michael Hill, defensive tackle Derek Landri and quarterback Jordan Rodgers.
Kafka, 26, did not play last season after spending part of training camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Buccaneers have starter Mike Glennon and backup Dan Orlovsky on the roster. Kafka will likely compete for the No. 3 spot.
Kafka was drafted in the fourth round by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010 and spent two seasons there as a backup. He recently worked out for the Dallas Cowboys.
Kafka has attempted 16 passes over four seasons in the NFL.
Carimi, a first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2011, was acquired by the Buccaneers for a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. He played 14 games, including three starts.
Hill had nine carries for 23 yards in six games in 2013. He was arrested for failing to obey a lawful order and resisting arrest in Missouri in January.
Landri made nine tackles in nine games.
Rodgers spent most of the season on the practice squad.
