Scott has registered 94 career tackles, 16.5 sacks, 21 tackles-for-loss, two forced fumbles and one pass breakup as well as 20 tackles on special teams.
Scott was selected by the Raiders in the sixth round of the 2008 draft out of Buffalo. His best season came in 2009 when he recorded 37 tackles, seven sacks, 11 tackles-for-loss, 12 quarterback hits and six special-teams tackles while playing in all 16 games with six starts for Oakland.
Scott was released by the Buccaneers last Oct. 24 after appearing in four games, all as a reserve.
