Free agent kicker Nick Rose worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Drew Brown and Joey Slye also worked out but Rose is the only one of the three with any NFL experience.  The tryouts were scheduled even before incumbent kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a 53-yard field goal and an extra point in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Dolphins.  (Catanzaro did convert two shorter field goals and two PATs."  The 24-year-old Rose, who played his college ball at the University of Texas, converted 11-of-14 field goal tries with a long of 55 yards last year over 10 games for the Chargers and Redskins.  The Bucs have used five kickers the past three seasons, and Patrick Murray, Nick Folk, Roberto Aguayo, Connor Barth and Kyle Brindza combined to go 76-of-105 (72.4 percent) on field goals. They missed 11 extra points.
