TAMPA, Fla. (March 8, 2005) -- Wide receiver Joey Galloway re-signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the team attempts to keep most of its receiving corps intact.
In his first season with the Buccaneers, Galloway finished with 33 catches for 416 yards and five touchdowns, but missed six games with a groin injury. He made just seven starts in 2004.
The Bucs were hoping to re-sign either Galloway or Joe Jurevicius this offseason, both of whom entered the free agent market. Along with rookie Michael Clayton, those three were the only Bucs receivers to catch at least 25 passes last season.
Terms of Galloway's deal were not released.
The speedy Galloway also led the Bucs with 20 punt returns for 142 yards and one touchdown.
The Bucs acquired Galloway from the Dallas Cowboys in March of last year in exchange for Keyshawn Johnson.
Galloway is the fifth player to re-sign or restructure their deal with the Bucs this offseason, joining quarterback Brian Griese, fullback Mike Alstott, defensive end Greg Spires and tight end Dave Moore.
