The fourth-year Gorrer had previously been on the injured reserve/designated for return with a groin injury.
This is good news for Tampa Bay, which has been searching for help in the secondary all year, no thanks to ineffectiveness of offseason acquisition Darrelle Revis. The 27-year-old, who started one game for Tampa Bay last season, recorded 11 tackles in six games. He also recorded his first regular-season pick on Dec. 24, when he picked off St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford last season.
Gorrer, who played for the Texas A&M Aggies in college, has also played for the Rams, Ravens, Seahawks, and Saints in his short pro career.
To make room for Gorrer, the Bucs waived corner Bobby Felder, who Tampa Bay had been claimed on waivers Tuesdays from the New Orleans Saints.
While Gorrer may not make much difference for the Bucs in trying to get that elusive first win, any good news must seem like great news for Tamp Bay this season.
