    The Buccaneers announced Wednesday that kicker Connor Barth suffered a torn Achilles tendon on July 12 in his hometown of Wilmington, N.C. Barth will be placed on the Non-Football Injury list and miss the 2013 season after undergoing successful surgery Monday.

    The team also announced that it has signed nine-year veteran kicker Lawrence Tynes to a one-year deal.

    "We are disappointed to lose a productive player like Connor, but are very fortunate to be able to sign an experienced kicker at this time of year," general manager Mark Dominik said. "Lawrence and his agent, Ken Harris, had other standing opportunities, but we are pleased that they thought this was the right place for Lawrence to continue his career."
