According to a report from the Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman and the agent of Murray himself, the Buccaneers have announced the signing of a new kicker.

The man Murray replaces, Nick Folk, will go on injured reserve with a "minor injury classification", and ESPN reported he will be released when he's healthy.

Players maintained their usual day-after-game routine, then had the weekend and Monday off. Folk was expecting the Bucs to try out possible replacements during the break.

In the end, Tampa Bay made a decision to go with Murray, who actually kicked for the Buccaneers in 2014.

Coach Dirk Koetter originally said they weren't going to make any "rash decisions", but they signed Murray after the workout on Monday. Murray appeared in two games for the Cleveland Browns before going on injured reserve in 2016 and was cut by the New Orleans Saints in training camp this summer. The team brought in several kickers on Monday - including Mike Nugent, Andrew Franks, Josh Lambo, Cairo Santos, Murray and Marshall Koehn - to complete for Folk's job. The 32-year-old Folk was 6 of 11 for field goals and 7 of 9 on extra points this season.

The news of Murray's signing doesn't come as a surprise after Folk missed all three of his field goals against the Patriots Thursday night and was a key ingredient in the team's disappointing loss at home.

Murray is 85.7 percent in his career on field goals from 40 or more yards, which was an area of struggle for the Bucs with Aguayo.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are examining options after Folk has started the season missing five field goals and two extra points.
