TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Running back Warrick Dunn signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, returning to the team he played for during his first five NFL seasons.
Dunn, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, spent the past six seasons with Atlanta, where he became the franchise's third-leading rusher with 5,979 rushing yards. Last season, he became the 22nd player in NFL history to surpass 10,000 yards rushing.
He was released by the Falcons last Monday, a day after they signed free-agent running back Michael Turner. His days in Atlanta were numbered after the Falcons doled out a six-year contract to Turner, reportedly for $34.5 million with about $15 million guaranteed.
The 33-year-old Dunn had three straight 1,000-yard seasons with the Falcons, helping the team lead the NFL in rushing from 2004-06. He also ran for a career-high 1,416 yards in 2005, earning his third Pro Bowl appearance.
Dunn, who played for Tampa Bay from 1997-2001, still ranks third on the Buccaneers' career rushing list with 4,200 rushing yards.
Overall, Dunn has 10,179 yards and 47 rushing touchdowns, along with 463 career receptions for 4,009 yards with 15 receiving touchdowns.
Earlier Monday, the Buccaneers signed free-agent tight end Ben Troupe and wide receiver Antonio Bryant. Troupe played for the Tennessee Titans the past four seasons, starting 29 games. Bryant was a second-round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2002 then moved to the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and San Francisco 49ers in 2006.
